Key Ingredient Lanolin
KEY INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT
Got eczema or super dry crackly skin? You should love La, La, Lanolin! About fifty years ago our Grammy created this concoction of a cream to combat dry skin aliments and we thought she was crazy - now our customers can’t live with out it! Every year our chemists formulate fresh batches of our Therapeutic Moisturizing Cream just in time for the winter season and our clients rave about the super moisturizing effects. The active ingredient in these creams is Lanolin. Lanolin is also called wool wax or wool grease. It is a waxy substance secreted by the sebaceous glands of sheep. The Lanolin used by humans comes from domestic sheep breeds that are raised specifically for their wool. Skin bioengineering studies have shown the durational effect of the emollient (skin smoothing) action produced by lanolin is very significant and lasts for many hours. Lanolin applied to the skin has been shown to reduce roughness by about 35% after one hour and 50% after two hours, with the overall effect lasting for considerably more than eight hours. Lanolin is also known to form a semiocclusive (breathable) film on the skin. Lanolin is great for skin and the sheep are so lovable too!

bath. The perfect compliment to our body scrubs.
