- PROTECTS SKIN FROM HARSH ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS: Pure Lanolin is a powerful, natural moisturizer that can promote the smoothness and translucency associated with healthy, youthful skin
- 100 PERCENT PURE: Derived from the wool of sheep, lanolin is remarkably close to our own natural skin oils
- FOR USE ON VERY DRY OR ROUGH SKIN: Its thickness has been compared to petroleum jelly, but lanolin is a natural alternative that has more moisturizing properties and is similar to our own skin lipids
- Packaged in the USA by a family owned and operated company since 1968
My thoughts: Lanolin is a lovely natural emollient that feels a lot like vaseline. It's thick and hard to spread, and the warmer it is the softer it gets. I use this for so many things, but it's my go-to for chapped lips and skin, crusty feet (yeah - it happens), as a light pomade/gel in my hair for smoothing, and much more. Lanolin is sourced from (living) sheep - when the sheep are sheared for their wool, lanolin coats each hair. The wool is then washed and the lanolin is separated out and deodorized. Yes - try to look for the deodorized or pharmaceutical-grade versions as they can sometimes have a funky smell. I'm just saying, this is not a good time to "go raw".
