Lowen’s Natural Skincare Reviews Part 3 – The All Purpose Balms

Lowen's Natural Skincare Super Salve, Make Room and Vegan Vapor Rub

Hello, hello!

Lowen's Natural Skincare

Today I’m continuing with my reviews of some of the products that came in my awesome PR package from Canadian company Lowen’s Natural Skincare (Here’s the links for parts 1, and 2). Today’s reviews are of three of their All Purpose Balms – Super Salve, Make Room Stretch Mark & Scar Balm, and Vegan Vapor Rub  [info in italics taken from the Lowen’s Natural Skincare website]

First up, Super Salve (all purpose balm):

Lowen's Natural Skincare Super Salve

Super Salve – All Purpose Skin Solution – Lowen’s Super Salve is essentially our Butter Balm but in a pocket sized format.  Just like its larger sibling, our Super Salve is is completely free of petrochemicals, artificial preservatives, colorants or scenting agents. Super salve serves as excellent barrier to irritants as well as being a very effective skin conditioner which means it is great for lips, cuticles, knuckles, heels, tattoos, rashes, chafing and more and small enough to take with you anywhere.  We suggest you don’t go anywhere without this crucial skincare item.

This stuff is awesome! I had a terrible cold over the holidays, and this helped heal my dry, red, irritated nose! I’ve also taken to using it as a cuticle balm since my hands get so dry in the winter.

Ingredients: Beeswax (Calgary, AB), Fair Trade Cold Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil (Philippines), Cold Pressed Non-GMO Camelina Oil (High River, AB), Cold Pressed Grapeseed Oil (Sumerland, BC), Rosemary Oil, Certified Organic Cold Pressed Canola Oil (High River, AB), Vitamin E

Onto Make Room! Stretch Mark & Scar Balm:

Lowen's Natural Skincare Make Room

Make Room was specifically formulated for improving skin elasticity and tone for growing tummies but can also be used for softening superficial scars or even for those hulking out at the gym growing their pecs, delts and biceps. We have also heard customer reports that it also improves the appearance of cellulite…Bonus!

This is a nice balm, I used it around my nose when I briefly misplaced (and then found) my Super Salve – and it also worked well to soothe my skin. I don’t have any stretch marks to test it on, but I can imagine that it would work well just based on the skin friendly ingredients.

Ingredients: Beeswax (Calgary, AB), Cetyl Alcohol, Certified Organic Fair Trade Coco Butter, Virgin Organic Coconut Oil (Philippines) , Cold Pressed Non-GMO Camelina Seed Oil (Saskatoon, SK), Rosemary Oil, Lecithin, Cold Pressed Non-GMO Canola Oil (High River , AB), Certified Organic Fair Trade Shea Butter (Ghana), Vitamin E (Natural Source)

And finally Vegan Vapor Rub:

Lowen's Natural Skincare Vegan Vapor Rub

Just like your favorite topical cough and cold body rubs but made better! Our Vegan Vapor Rub formula is 100% natural and preservative free.  Why does this matter?  Well there are many of us out there that would prefer not to use a petroleum based medicated rub.  Sure we grew up our parents slathering on Vicks Vaporub but knowing how simple that product was (and still is) we thought it would be better to come up with an effective product with a vegan ointment base.  It isn’t the easiest thing to do and isn’t the cheapest product to create but we wanted something we were 100% comfortable using in our home.

Perfect timing with this balm – I used it every night until my cold was gone. It really helped me breathe at night as I was so congested. And it doesn’t make my skin feel gross like the petroleum jelly based ones. I love the smell of this!

Ingredients: Certified Organic Cold Pressed Non-GMO Canola Oil (High River, AB), Fair Trade, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Certified Organic Candelilla Wax, Camphor, Menthol, Certified Organic Spearmint Leaf Oil, Vitamin E, Rosemary Oil, Limonene*, D-Limonene**. (*present at 0.0031% – naturally occurring component of camphor – listed to comply with EU labelling standards as an allergen, **0.0088% naturally occurring component of spearmint oil – listed to comply with EU labelling standards as an allergen)

This balm smells amazing due to the orange essential oil and it applies like a dream, and melts into the skin. It is soothing and super gentle on my  sensitive skin, and really does help soften and hydrate dry skin patches. This is going to be a staple for the upcoming colder months, for sure!
