WHY LANOLIN?

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. 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. 2. It is semi-occlusive and semi-permeable – meaning it allows skin to self-hydrate from within.
  3. 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

OUR STORY

100 YEARS HERITAGE

Farming + Science + Beauty

Kirsten Carriol had to catch a plane and was stuck for lip balm. That long flight became her light bulb moment. Growing up on a remote Australian sheep farm her Dad (a DNA scientist) had taught her that lanolin, from wool, mimics human oils - making it nature's secret to all skin moisture. As a child, lanolin was the only ingredient her parents used on her lips & skin. Chapped but undefeated, Kirsten then created Lano: the most natural - and magically simple - lanolin lip & skincare in the world.
