The benefits of Lanolin

There are multiple benefits of using Lanolin on our skin. Lanolin penetrates deeper into the epidermis than a normal moisturiser, as deep as the stratum granulosum; nourishing and locking in moisture, as well as acting as a barrier to prevent moisture loss. Lanolin is also rich in Vitamin D, a powerful antioxidant that helps regulate skin cell growth, repair and metabolism.

Lanolin helps us keep our skin healthy and hydrated in two important ways:

  • It nourishes, and can help lock in moisture

  • It can act as a barrier to prevent moisture loss


Lanolin can reduce water lost through the skin by 20-30%. It is extremely hydrating and has the ability to soften skin to help improve the appearance and the feel of rough, dry, or flaky areas. Lanolin can hold twice its weight in water. This can plump skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Lanolin is:

  • An excellent emollient that softens the skin

  •  It provides moisture & hydration

  •  It softens dry skin leaving it silky smooth

  •  It acts as a barrier to prevent further moisture loss
