What should I name my business?

So, I have a bunch of product prototypes, packaging, access to a great web/graphic designer and a few months of mostly-free time to get my little skincare business off the ground. Unfortunately, I don't know what this business is called.

The current products are shower gels/moisturisers/lip balms, they're intended to be unisex, and the ones that are fragranced are of the woodsy-herby-medicinal-smelling variety. They're handmade in Australia and although a lot of the ingredients are organic and/or fair-trade, I'm not going for the "natural cosmetics" market or anything like that. The branding and logo ideas I've been toying with are along the lines of Geigy packaging
and I'm generally going for a retro, "Better Living Through Chemistry" vibe.
I'm struggling to come up with an appropriate brand name, and I'd particularly fancy something that's a short chemistry- or dermatology-related pun. I also like the idea of a Latin word or phrase. I've gotten to the stage of overthinking where I've seriously considered calling it "Rub This Lotion On Its Skin", which is the point where I decided I might need outside help.
Any suggestions for brand names, or advice on where I might find some fresh inspiration?
