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!
