Extracted from freshly-sheared sheep's wool, lanolin is an amazing substance. A natural moisturizer and luxurious emollient, it soothes and protects dry, damaged, or chapped skin. Particularly good on rough spots like heels and elbows. This is the lanolin we use in our lanolin-enriched, Sudsy Sheep soap line.Also suitable for lanolizing diaper covers. Nursing mothers may appreciate its value.Sold by volume (which is actually quite close to weight value, too).
