Richest Lanolin Hand & Body Lotion
This is a marvelous moisturizing blend that will Repair, Nourish and Moisturize.
Since Lanolin has been used for centuries to heal damaged skin, formulating a lotion was an easy progression. Aloe and Calendula-infused Olive Oil soothe cranky, irritated, dry cracked skin while the Rice Bran Oil supplements with extra vitamins to nourish.
Lanolin is the natural oil found in sheep's wool. It helps protect the sheep from cold, wet weather by making the wool oily and water-repellent. You never hear of a sheep shrinking in a rain storm, right? When sheep are shorn, and the fleece is sent off to be processed in to yarn, they remove and purify the lanolin. It's a win win situation!! The lanolin is used for a variety of applications - medically, it's used for burns and rashes - in our application, it's a superlative moisturizer for severely dry and cracked skin.
Lanolin works by creating a barrier on the surface of the skin to help prevent water from evaporating. The skin makes natural oils for this purpose, of course, but these oils can be washed away, leaving the skin dry and chapped. At times, the environment may be colder, drier or windier for your skin oils to handle, and adding extra oil on the surface helps give extra protection.
