Merino Lanolin Skin Crème is a beautifully balanced multi-purpose creme for use on dry skin.
Lanolin softens and helps the skin to stretch after surgery and is also a useful product for diabetics to use to help prevent moisture on their feet when well massaged into the skin.
This cremè has excellent barrier properties if massaged into the skin before starting outdoor work, such as gardening, carpentry or farm work, assisting the skin to maintain its natural moisture while at the same time preventing dirt from entering the pores of the skin therefore allowing for easy removal. It also provides the skin with a protective layer that acts as a barrier against environmental damage from the sun’s UV rays.
The secret of Merino Lanolin Skin Crème is its ingredients: lanolin, glycerine, and moisturising oils. Lanolin is a lipid based emollient that comes from sheep and other wool-producing animals. Lanolin works by creating a layer of oil on top of the skin. This oily layer traps the water in the skin, keeping it hydrated. This oily layer also helps remove dead skin cells, making the skin feel smoother and softer. What makes lanolin doubly effective in fighting dry skin is that it is able to absorb moisture from the surrounding air and draw it into the outer layer of the skin.
Another important ingredient of Merino Lanolin Skin Crème is glycerine. Also called glycerol, it is a multipurpose compound for cosmetic purposes and for treating medical conditions. Glycerine has a therapeutic effect on the skin, meaning it can promote healing of wounds. Aside from this, glycerine can normalize the maturation of skin cells to prevent skin conditions like psoriasis.
