I live in a city that has hard water and I have dry skin. I went to my local health food store and purchased pure 100% lanolin. This product worked miracles on my dry hands.

Lansinoh is made of wool fat. I am allergic to wool. I rarely wear sweaters and do not wear wool socks. No rugs in our house today contain wool. [I have a son that has sensitive skin too. He would never admit to it.] I wish I could tell more women. However, I am putting this in writing for the first time now. I have 3 kids, and for the first two used Lansinoh, the purple tube ointment, on my breasts religiously. I was told to do so by the lactation consultant at the hospital. I read the instructions on the large piece of paper inside the box. Read the box. Read the tube. No where does it say wool. From the manufacturer: Lansinoh HPA Lanolin Cream Recommended by Lactation Consultants Soothes and protects sore, dry and cracked nipples World’s purest lanolin – safe for mom and baby 100% natural, single ingredient product – Preservative free Used by and recommended by breastfeeding moms Hypoallergenic Information about the product reads: #1 recommended nipple cream by Lactation Consultants and doctors in the US Soothes and protects sore and cracked nipples World's purest lanolin - safe for mom and baby Hypoallergenic, no need to remove before breastfeeding Lansinoh For Breastfeeding Mothers The safety and purity of Lansinoh is not available in any other lanolin product Safe for Baby Relief for Mother You can read the container itself, the box, and the inside papers like I did. Luckily one day, my mother (a gerontological nurse and mother of 9) was sitting with me and read the box. On the ingredients, it stated that it contained lanolin. Lanolin is wool fat. I had mastitis 3 times, and it is very painful. I was on antibiotics constantly. My second child had skin issues, that were not resolved by Dreft and many other attempts. When I stopped using Lansinoh, I enjoyed my third child's breastfeeding with no pain. My second son has no skin issues now. Sad to find out so late. Did you know, lanolin was wool fat, wax, or grease? It should be printed somewhere on the prod

I have been using this for cracked and sore nipples from breastfeeding. I purchased 100% pure lanolin at target for around 10 bucks. Love it because it's safe for my baby and myself. It has soothed and softened my nipples.

After one day and my dry hands appeared more smooth, radiant and even younger looking. I have started using it on my face. The wrinkles that was forming on my skin has disappeared and my face looks more smooth, radiant, and youthful. This product is one of the few products that I have purchased recently that does not irritate my skin. I love this product!!!
