LANOLIN – WHY IS IT SO GOOD?
BECAUSE IT WORKS. The molecular structure of lanolin mimics human skin lipids, making it the most skin-compatible ingredient around. More so than any other natural or synthetic ingredient in skincare. We call it ‘Natures Wonder Moisturiser™’
Lanolin is 100% natural & animal cruelty free. It’s found on the wool of sheep that helps keep their coat protected and dry throughout the year.
Sheep’s wool grows continuously; if it’s not sheared annually the fleece will become soiled – and too hot and heavy for the animal. Lanolin is the animal-cruelty-free by-product of wool washing after shearing.
Lanolin is a unique, natural ingredient that works in 3 magical ways:
1. The molecular structure of lanolin mimics human skin lipids, making it the most skin-compatible ingredient around. More so than any other natural or synthetic ingredient in skincare.
2. It is semi-occlusive and semi-permeable – meaning it allows skin to self-hydrate from within.
3. It is a moisture reservoir, holding up to 400% its weight in moisture.
Which is why we call it ‘Natures Wonder Moisturiser™’

MYTHS & FACTS
Lanolin is . . . a natural product of the wool industry. It is a substance extracted from the fleece once it has been removed from an unharmed sheep once the sheep have been shorn. It’s vegetarian-friendly. Lanolin is no more cruel to animals than drinking milk, using beeswax, eating honey or even wearing wool. Lanolips is proudly animal cruelty free.
