A thick oil that comes from sheep's wool, used for extra dry skin and to boost color in lip products.
Lanolin is a thick oil which comes from sheep's wool. The oil is extracted from the wool during the shearing season so the animals themselves are NOT slaughtered for the oil. This is pharmaceutical grade (USP).
Lanolincan be rubbed directly on severely dry or cracked skin to sooth and heal. It is also a very useful additive to any lip recipe where you wish to boost the coloration.
