Lanolin is the natural wax found on the wool of sheep. It helps in the shedding of water from their wool coats and also protects their skin from the environment. Lanolin has been shown to be superior to petrolatum in reducing symptoms of dry, cracking, and itching skin thanks to its ability to protect and moisturize the skin. When obtaining the lanolin from the sheep during sheering of the wool coat, in no way is the sheep harmed. Infact, the sheering is beneficial to the sheep! Without the wool being removed from the sheep, the sheep may become immobilized and have other health problems!
