Our award-winning multipurpose Original Nipple Balm for dry skin, luscious lips & glossy bits contains just one ingredient, lanolin. Our lanolin is medical grade and 100% natural.
Lanolin is an incredibly complex natural material, which has been perfected over thousands of years of evolution. It is so complex scientists are still struggling to reproduce synthetically anything that comes as close to being as effective as the real thing.
Its role in nature is to protect the sheep’s fleece and skin against the ravages of climate and the environment. It also plays a role in the skin hygiene of sheep, keeping both fleece and skin well hydrated and supple.
In 1935 Twort & Twort proved Lanolin accelerates the repair of the skin’s natural barrier functions and far from being something that causes problems, lanolin is actually a counter-irritant. They then wrote a review of the protective power of lanolin in the Journal of hygiene, stating Its incorporation into the lipids of the top surface of the skin boosts the skin’s barrier function providing a higher level of protection from hazards in the environment.
