From early beginnings, Jerry, your quintessential kiwi sheep farmer discovered the incredible skin softening qualities of Lanolin oil on his dry, and weather-beaten hands while working with the Sheep's wool. The first batch of Lanolin skincare was created in the 1980's, with its distinctive and iconic pink caps, sheep and mountain scenery and became a roaring success.
Since the 80s Lanocréme has continued to grow and in 2017 opened its own purpose built factory in Canterbury.
The exceptional properties of Lanolin
Natural Skin Shield - Lanolin is a natural skin softener (emollient), its semi-permeable nature, enables us to create skincare that forms a protective barrier keeping moisture in, all while allowing skin to breathe. Skin's very own waterproof jacket.
Hydration Booster - Lanolin is a unique and nourishing substance. Its ability to provide a breathable skin barrier creates a perfect environment for long lasting skin hydration by preventing water loss by 20-30%. Lanolin is like a moisture blanket for your skin.
Plumper & Rejuvenator - With the ability to retain up to twice its weight in water, coupled with its highly moisturising properties, Lanolin plumps each cell full of much needed moisture and rejuvenates skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
