Hayseed Lip Balm
Our classic unflavoured lip balm made with the goodness of Highwood Crossing’s Certified Organic Cold Pressed, Non-GMO Canola Oil. The natural scent has a very subtle “straw-like” scent so we’ve aptly named the balm “Hayseed” to recognize this and give a nod to all of us prairie flat-landers (AKA – Hayseeds).
Hayseed Lip Balm
Hayseed is our classic unflavoured lip balm made with the goodness of Highwood Crossing’s certified organic, Non-GMO, cold pressed canola oil. This happens to be the base formula of which all of our flavoured lip balms are based (i.e. hayseed formula with a little essential oil and or booze added in for good measure). Anyhow, this natural flavour has a very subtle “straw-like” scent so we’ve aptly named the balm Hayseed to recognize this and give a nod to all to our fellow prairie flat-landers (AKA – Hayseeds).
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.”
