This might actually be one of our very first flavours.  I can’t quite remember – maybe I’m getting old…  Anyhow, this was one of my first successful attempts at a lip balm.  You see, Back in 2010, I forced these lip balms on our guests at our Christmas party and back then called it “candy cane.”  The presentation wasn’t executed all that well on my part as I eagerly presented a mug full of unlabelled tubes, filled with an off-yellow, waxy substance. Once people realized that I wasn’t joking and gave them a try, I won them over…although people went on and on about how I need to label them for a better first impression.

This might actually be one of our very first flavours.  I can’t quite remember – maybe I’m getting old…  Anyhow, this was one of my first successful attempts at a lip balm.  You see, Back in 2010, I forced these lip balms on our guests at our Christmas party and back then called it “candy cane.”  The presentation wasn’t executed all that well on my part as I eagerly presented a mug full of unlabelled tubes, filled with an off-yellow, waxy substance.

Note: Not too many people ate them thinking they were off-coloured peppermint sticks.

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.
