Lanolin, is a by-product of sheep's wool. The sheep are not harmed in any way. After they've been sheared, the Lanolin is removed from the wool and purified. Ever wonder why wet sheep don't shrink? The Lanolin actually waterproofs their wool!
If you do your own research, you will find that there have been studies showing Lanolin as being superior to both Petrolatum and Glycerin products in reducing the signs and symptoms of skin dryness and scaling, cracks and abrasions, pain and itches. It has also been proven useful in the healing of superficial wounds.

Ultra concentrated, a little goes a long way with this super conditioning skin salve.
