What is Lanolin?
Lanolin is an oily, yellow substance produced by the oil glands in a sheep's skin.
It coats the animal's wool, helping to keep it dry and healthy. It also softens the skin and acts as an anti-fungal and antibacterial agent. Because of lanolin's protective qualities, it is commonly used in cosmetic creams and lotions designed to smooth and moisturize the skin / scalp.
