About Us

Founder Pontine Paus

Oh, hello. We’re glad you found us, because sweethearts, Dr.Lipp is all you need! Here are some things you should know about us…

We believe in simplicity & efficiency, which is why our award-winning balm contains just one ingredient, medical-grade lanolin from free-roaming sheep down under. We’re cruelty-free, of course, and are on a mission to make you feel really great. A bit like a doctor you might say.

We launched because our super founder Pontine (more on her later) suffered from the driest eczema-prone skin (trust us, she was fed up). After trying everything, and believe me she tried really everything she discovered the product with the fastest and most lasting effect was, nipple balm. Oh yes, you read right! Nipple Balm! So Pontine took on nipple balm (quiet down at the back!) and decided to take on the world!

Whilst researching her nipple balm’s origins of Lansinoh and Medilan, Pontine discovered it had been used for CENTURIES! It had been a skincare favourite as far back as 90AD in ancient Greece, where it was recorded in the world’s first ever pharmacopeia. Almost absolutely identical to our skin’s natural oils and so complex scientists today can’t reproduce anything as good as the real thing! It truly is a miracle of nature! Lanolin has been used for decades in modern skincare and pharmaceutical product formulations, but is often overlooked by most of us as a single ingredient and so don’t know how could it can be on its own! It’s extracted from sheep’s wool – and we’re not sure how that came about, but dread to think of a life without it.

As they say; if you know, you know and thanks to Pontine, now you know!

“If it’s good enough for my nipples, it’s good enough for everywhere else,” says Pontine

Today, make-up artists, celebs, the beauty industry elite and beautiful customers across the world are in love with our Original Nipple Balm for everything and anything, from glossy lips, to dry elbows, taming brows, conditioning cuticles, you name it.

Oh, and we’re 100% natural. Obviously.

Dr.Lipp is FREE from parabens, fragrances, sulfates, mineral oil, petrolatum, colouring agents, T.E .A, D.E.A and silicones etc.  We add no additives, do not test on animals, and only use unpainted fleece from free roaming sheep in Australia. A 100% Natural product and a WHOLE cosmetic product. Tasteless, odourless & so utterly kissable…


About Pontine


Where do we start with our looovely Founder Pontine? She’s quite the creative, and has her arty fingers in a lot of pies. When she isn’t advocating the benefits of Dr.Lipp (trust us, that’s a lot of the time), she’s a handbag designer, artist and illustrator among other things. Pontine’s idea for Dr.Lipp came to her in the lobby of the Savoy Hotel, Milan, with her chum, who was then Head of Marketing at Stella McCartney. She loves to travel and splits her time between her swanky West London pad and her dreamy chalet in Verbier. She is cheekier than our Original Nipple Balm itself, and most importantly, is cured of her dry skin. Hurrah!
