Peppermint Pouty Lip Balm
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.
Peppermint Pouty Lip Balm
Yes, Peppermint Pouty is our first ever lip balm flavor! Born in 2010, we forced these lip balms on guests at our Christmas Party, calling it “Candy Cane Lip Balm.” Sure, the presentation wasn’t executed all that well on my part. We eagerly presented a mug full of unlabeled tubes, filled with off-yellow, waxy tubes. Once people realized we weren’t joking and gave them a try. BAM! Winning product (proudly, I have them to thank…)
Side note: A few people thought to eat these balms- thinking they were off-coloured peppermint sticks (really only the kids did that).
Lowen’s Lip Balm Lore
The story behind Lowen’s Lip Balms can be found in a failed experiment. In the early days, when trying to create a natural, effective and locally sourced diaper balm for our daughter Lowen. I accidentally came up with this lip balm formula.
You see, after a boat load of failed formulations. Finally, I had created an amazing diaper balm!
Not so…when my wife applied it to her hand and placed it under the tap. Clearly, 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 diaper nastiness.
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 repurposed my failed formula. That happened to be sitting by the change table, as a lip balm.
In the morning, I learned by accident, I had created “the most amazing lip balms she’d tried!” Once I finally perfected our Butter Balm, I revisited this formula and actually flavored 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 flavored lip balms was born!
- Net wt. 4.25 grams
- As always: Cruelty Free (we only test on willing humans)
- Our lip balm’s performance will vary in extreme heat. If storage temperatures exceed 40°C or 104°F your lip balm will soften and sweat out the oil components. Higher temperatures will cause the contents to liquify. For the best results, please leave your lip balm in a cool place!
So let’s cheers to #CANADIANGREENBEAUTY !!!
