Greatfruit Lip Balm
Greatfruit Lip Balm – You know, we really don’t have a compelling origin story for this one. Although I can weave a good yarn, I feel it’s best to keep it above board – Greatfruit Lip Balm is light, refreshing and works incredibly well (like all our products) and is naturally flavored with pink grapefruit essential oil.

Note: this lip balm WILL NOT prevent scurvy. Well, we don’t think. If ever trapped on a boat for a long period without citrus fruit, try eating it and get back to us…we’ll be by the beach waiting for a bottle with a note in it. (“Why is the rum always gone…”)
Lowen’s Lip Balm Lore
The story behind all of Lowen’s Lip Balms can be found in a failed experiment. In the early days when I was trying to create a natural, incredible effective and locally sourced diaper balm for our daughter Lowen, I accidentally came up with the lip balm formula.
You see, after a boat load of experimentation and failed formulations, I finally thought I had created an amazing diaper balm!
Not so…when my wife applied it to her hand and placed it under the tap, it didn’t do a great job repelling the water. It actually “took on” water, which isn’t desirable when you are trying to protect baby’s bottom from dirty diaper nastiness.
Anyhow, I felt pretty defeated and my better half recognized this. Later that same night after finishing up a late feeding with Lowen, my wife’s lips were really bothering her. Being half-asleep and not wanting to search in the dark for “lip chap,” she decided to repurpose my failed formula, that happened to be sitting by the change table, as a lip balm.
In the morning, I learned that, by accident, I had created “the most amazing lip balms she’s tried!” Once I finally perfected our Butter Balm, I revisited this formula and actually flavoured it with some peppermint oil to make “Candy Cane” lip balms for our holiday open house. They turned out to be very popular and from that point on our expanding line of naturally flavoured lip balms was born!
One last feather in our cap- all of Lowen’s incredible Lip Balms are EWG Verified™, meaning that our lip balms are “adequately preserved and free of contaminants, and that manufacturing processes meet EWG’s rigorous criteria.”
