Product Description

The thick, rich natural moisturizer extracted from sheared wool. For centuries, lanolin has been successfully used as an aid to dry and damaged skin – even tough areas like elbows, knees & heels. Ours is a high purity grade of Lanolin. It is very concentrated so a little goes a long way. Helps with drying, chapping & roughness. With its outstanding ability to help even the toughest skin, it’s serious enough for gardeners and others who work outdoors.

Our 100% pure and natural Lanolin Anhydrous is a purified wax derived from the wool of sheep. It is then cleaned, decolorized, and deodorized. Just like in humans, a sheep's skin has pores that produce oils to hydrate the surface of the body. These oils, called lanolin, have a deep moisturizing effect on skin and hair. Its lipid-rich emollient locks existing moisture into the skin and absorbs additional moisture from the air around it. Lanolin is easily absorbed into the skin, which allows it to help repair barrier function and increase skin moisture, working wonderfully in lotions, creams, body scrubs, lip balms, and can be topically soothing for breast-feeding moms.

Lanolin and its many derivatives are used extensively in both the personal care (e.g., high value cosmetics, facial cosmetics, lip products) and health care sectors such as topical liniments. Lanolin is also found in lubricants, rust-preventive coatings, shoe polish, and other commercial products.[11]

Lanolin is a relatively common allergen and is often misunderstood as a wool allergy. However, allergy to a lanolin-containing product is difficult to pinpoint and often other products containing lanolin may be fine for use. Patch testing can be done if a lanolin allergy is suspected.[11]

It is frequently used in protective baby skin treatment and for sore nipples in breastfeeding mothers.[12]

Lanolin is used commercially in many industrial products ranging from rust-proof coatings to lubricants. Some sailors use lanolin to create slippery surfaces on their propellers and stern gear to which barnacles cannot adhere. The water-repellent properties make it valuable as a lubricant grease where corrosion would otherwise be a problem.

Lanolin is often used as a raw material for producing Vitamin D3 using irradiation.

Baseball players often use it to soften and break in their baseball gloves (shaving cream with lanolin is popularly used for this).

Anhydrous liquid lanolin, combined with parabens, has been used in trials as artificial tears to treat dry eye.[13][14]
Anhydrous lanolin is also used as a lubricant for brass instrument tuning slides.

Lanolin can also be restored to woolen garments to make them water and dirt repellent, such as for cloth diaper covers.

Lanolin is also used in lip balm products such as Carmex. For some people, it can irritate the lips.

Lanolin is sometimes used by people on continuous positive airway pressure therapy to reduce irritation with masks, particular nasal pillow masks that can often create sore spots in the nostrils.

Lanolin is a popular additive to moustache wax, particularly 'extra firm' varieties.

Lanolin is used as a primary lubricating component in aerosol based brass lubricants in the ammunition reloading process. Mixed warm 1:12 with highly concentrated alcohol (usually 99%), the alcohol acts as a carrier which evaporates quickly after application, leaving a fine film of lanolin behind to prevent brass seizing in resizing dies.

Lanolin, when mixed with ingredients such as neatsfoot oil, beeswax and glycerine (glycerol), is used in various leather treatments, for example in some saddle soaps and in leather care products.
