The Lowen’s Super Salve/Butter Balm Story

I met local tattoo artist Cody Rawlinson, through an ad I put up as I was selling off my back-country snowboard.  I was pretty bummed to be selling it as not too long prior have been diagnosed with 3 chronic health conditions and didn’t ever anticipate using it again.  Anyhow, I soon found out Cody was an accomplished tattoo artist and we ended up working out a barter exchange – the split-board for tattoo work.  I ended up getting 2/3rds of my back done, my calf and my wife got some touch-ups.  Over the next 2 years, he scheduled me in when he had an opening and last winter he finished up.  (I’d say “we” but all I did was lie there and shoot the breeze with Cody).

Through our sessions we got to know each other quite well.  I told Cody about Lowen’s and he was willing to try out some products on his clients (and myself, of course!).  So, through that time, we also tested and refined Lowen’s Pin Cushion Tattoo Balm who’s release would coincide with Cody’s opening of his new studio – The Old Crow.

Lowen’s Pin Cushion Tattoo Balm is the culmination of long term formulation and testing – sourcing the fewest, yet most effective ingredients, many local, in a preservative free balm that helps your body art to heals up nice and easy, assisting you with any discomfort, as well as ensuring even healing so that the finished product looks it’s best.

Like we say, you put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into your tattoo (as well as a fair load of money).  Take care of it afterward – “Be smart with yer art!”

Net Wt.: 10 grams/0.33 ounce

As always: Cruelty Free (we only test on willing humans), unscented (any scent is due solely to our ingredients)

    I am familiar with Lowen’s other balms and lip salves, and wanted to try this. I do not have a tattoo, but live in Alberta where the moisture content of the air is very low, and I have to wash my hands a lot during the day.

    The salve has a melting point well below body temperature, so even as small an amount as 1g (a baby fingernail portion) starts to disintegrate immediately, is sufficient enough, and disappears in less than a minute into the hands. It is then safe to pick up your knitting, or touch anything else without feeling greasy.
    The scent is natural, with a bit of hemp, and nothing too flowery or overpowering. Congratulations Chad on another great product.

    This product is very different from the ones I usually use in Italy and there is a well-founded reason. Contains hemp seed oil, and cannabis sativa, and as you know, not being grown for cosmetic use are not the usual ingredients of Italian products. Obviously the fact that they sent me indicates that the concentration is below the Italian laws. I say this to dispel any doubt.
    The product has a very special smell. What is the taste? In fact I would not really say … at first there is a vague hint of beeswax, which is one of the ingredients. In any case, you will notice that I often start to consider the smell because sometimes it is a point of disfavour of those products, or to be too fragrant enough to disturb.
    In any case it is a cruelty free product, but more than anything else I would like to consider in depth the healing properties of hemp oil. Hemp oil is rich in substances and nutrients that are really important for our health, such as vitamins, amino acids, mineral salts, etc. In general it is a natural supplement useful for treating dermatitis, acne and other skin disorders. Its massive presence of essential fatty acids that are essential for treating and moisturizing dry, dehydrated skin, in fact this ingredient in particular has the denomination of anti-aging.
    It is also one of the few sources of alpha linoleic acid or acid of the OMEGA 3 and 6 series. In great synthesis, hemp oil is antioxidant and anti-inflammatory and it is also for this reason that The Old Crow Tattoo Aftercare balm is an excellent product.
    After tattoo, just a little of product is needed to cover large surfaces tattooed and with a gentle massage has a rapid absorption without greasing. The soothing properties reduce redness and decrease the slight discomfort caused by the micro-lesions caused by tattoos. Thanks to the density of the product and its nutrients it is sufficient to apply it only twice a day, in the morning and before going to bed to allow maximum care. Do not hesitate in front of the presence of hemp seed oil, is its best value.
