Our Company Story


     Lou's Organic Lab LLC is a family owned skincare business in Wilmington, North Carolina. It was established in 2019 and it's owned and operated by Lou and Jenny Painter. (Yep, that's us in the photo.) We handcraft two world-class skincare products: All Natural Skin Serum Formula 1225 and Sir Pugsley's All Natural After Shave Balm. Our customers love our products, and they will enthusiastically tell you that both of our skincare products are  arguably the finest in the world (please check out our video reviews on the 'Reviews' menu tab.)

     We handcraft our products in small batches with 14 botanicals and oils that have been proven to hydrate, heal, and nourish skin. Our products do not contain alcohol, mineral oil or parabens, and we do not dilute them with water. Both products are 100% natural. (Our 'Ingredients' menu tab gives a complete listing of our product ingredients and how each one nourishes skin).  

     Formula 1225 Skin Serum was the first product we developed and it was nine months in the making. My face felt dry and itchy and like it was on fire after I would shave, and we traced this to the various chemicals and alcohol contained in the aerosol shave cream I was using. Jenny, who truly is my better half, was already into natural skincare and urged me to look into botanicals as a source of remedy. So I began researching botanicals in hopes of developing an all natural alternative to the store bought shave cream I was using. I still have my three ring binder notebook with pages and pages of research on botanicals and oils that were known to hydrate, heal, and nourish skin, and it's got pages of my notes and my original recipes for the solution I was seeking. (Jenny refers to my notebook as 'My Science Project'). After twenty-seven original skincare recipes, and many small tweaks to those recipes, with Jenny's advice and suggestions and help, we developed Formula 1225 Skin Serum.  

​     As development of Formula 1225 neared its completion, Jenny started 'bathing' in it. She tried some of our serum on her age spots and dark circles under her eyes. Very soon, she noticed that her age spots had faded, the dark circles had vanished, and her skin felt soft and supple. She also put it on several small cuts she had on her forearms from gardening, and it helped heal them. It softened her cuticles and healed her cracked heels. It made her face, forearms, hands and feet feel soft and supple. And of course, I used it too and found that it made my face feel like new! The amazing results we got from Formula 1225 helping our skin told us that we had developed a very potent skin serum!

     We then shared Formula 1225 with family members and friends as birthday gifts and Christmas presents. They absolutely loved our serum! Their glowing reviews persuaded us to go into business and share Formula 1225 with the world. Six months later we developed Sir Pugley's All Natural After Shave Balm, who's icon on the label is a nod to Mike, our 16 year old puggle.

     We named our company after both of our names, my first name, Lou, and Jenny's middle name, which is Lou. We then designed a company website and took our products to local farmer's markets. People bought our products at these markets, fell in love with them, told their friends (who also bought our products and told their friends) and here we are! And now we shipped our skin serum and after shave balm worldwide! Jenny and I invite you to try our products. We're confident that you, too, will fall in love with them. If not, we offer a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee. Thank you for visiting our website!
