What Is Lanolin?
Lanolin is a greasy, yellow substance that is produced by sheep to keep their wool dry and soft. Lanolin is soothing to the skin and naturally helps prevent bacteria from growing. It acts as a moisture barrier on skin and keeps wool in good condition. Pharmaceutical grade lanolin has been purified to remove pesticides and other chemicals.
When purified, lanolin is used as a base for ointments and creams, as a lubricant, and in finishing and preserving leather. It is also a constituent of some varnishes and paints. Lanolin is made of a mixture of cholesterol and the esters of several fatty acids. With water it forms an emulsion. As a waste product in wool processing, it is known also as wool wax, wool fat, or wool grease.
Does Sheepish Grins use any animal byproducts?
Absolutely not. Lanolin is produced from wool sheared from live animals. Sheep need to have their wool sheared off at least once a year or it gets so long it tangles and makes them much too hot for summertime. When the wool is cleaned, the lanolin is extracted. One of the reasons I love using lanolin and wool is that they are biodegradable, naturally produced, renewable resources and using them does not hurt sheep.
None of our products contain ingredients that require an animal to die (for instance, we do not use any emu oil, beef tallow, or other fats from animals). We use only two animal ingredients in our products, bees wax and lanolin. All of our skin care products are clearly labeled so you can easily see what they contain.
