This 100% pure and natural Lanolin Anhydrous is a purified wax derived from the wool of sheep. It is then cleaned 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. Lanolin helps lock existing moisture into the skin and absorbs additional moisture from the air around it.
Lanolin is a great moisturizer and has strong emulsifying properties, therefore it is often used in lotions, creams, body scrubs, and lip balms.
It can also be topically soothing for breast-feeding moms.
Can be used in shampoo and conditioners because it can help smooth hair and its follicles, and helps promote scalp health.
