Lip Balm - Cool Camelina - Unflavored
Our classic unflavored lip balm made with the goodness of Three Farmer's Camelina Oil. For those of you that are not in the know, Camelina is an "ancient"grain (AKA - Gold of Pleasure) that used to be used as an oilseed in the olden times. Now, it's made a resurgence in Saskatchewan! Camelina oil is non-GMO and is grown, harvested and pressed in southern Saskatchewan by the family run operation at Canpressco Products Inc.
It is very stable to high (and low, az in freezing) temperatures and is abundant in unsaturated fatty acids (see essential fatty acids). It's great for your lips and the rest of your skin, which is why we use it in so many of our products!

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!"
And there you have it
