Chad's Story

Chad’s interest in chemistry and entrepreneurial spirit presented at an early age through “exploratory” experiments (that caused minimal damage) and forays into exploring the “value chain,” learning early on that time invested ≠ value realized.  Only did these two interests marry with the onset of Lowen’s Skincare. The Primary reasons Lowen’s came to be was that Chad wants his daughters (Lowen and Simone) to grow up in an environment that fosters creativity and financial literacy.  The fact that Lowen’s now formulates, manufactures, markets and retails a broad spectrum or personal care products through North America was a happy accident.   

Chad is a Registered Pharmacist (University of Saskatchewan, 2001) but no longer counts pills. He attained his MBA (Royal Roads University 2009) and found that the extra training combined with the financial downturn that hit Alberta when he graduated was the significant motivation he needed to systematically think about starting a business rather than remain stuck in the `what if` cycle of contemplation.

Chad loves entrepreneurship, technology, politics, social justice, science, empowerment, personal growth and pop culture and finds Lowen's is an incredible platform to exercise these interests.

A lifelong learner and collaborator, Chad is always looking to explore new and unusual collaborations to ensure that life remains interesting.

Chad’s entrepreneurial interest sta has always been interested in entrepreneurship and for a number of reasons, started up a skincare company. Primarily, he wanted his daughter to grow up in an environment that fostered creativity and financial literacy all at once. 

Chad is a card-carrying pharmacist (University of Saskatchewan, 2001) but no longer counts pills. He has his MBA (Royal Roads University 2009) and found that the extra training was the kick he needed to systematically think about starting a business rather than continuing to naval gaze and contemplate `what if.` 

Chad loves business/entrepreneurship, politics and science and finds Lowen's is an awesome platform to facilitate that.

Lowen's Natural Skincare is a proud member of REAP, working with other locally owned businesses to green Calgary's economy.
