Lanolin occurs naturally in sheep’s wool.

Is Lanolin Faithful to Nature?


Lanolin is a natural ingredient with a long history of safe use. It can be gathered without harming animals and is responsible for job creation and the livelihoods of many of South Africa’s most at risk communities. As ever, the decision to use or avoid animal-derived ingredients remains in the hands of each individual. At Faithful to Nature we aim to empower you with these choices by fully disclosing ingredients so you can make the informed purchasing decision that’s right for your ethical journey.

Benefits: Why is Lanolin Used?


Lanolin is deeply hydrating and nourishes the skin, it is frequently used to treat chapped lips.

Postpartum care

Lanolin is used as an effective nipple cream to combat sore and chapped nipples from breastfeeding.

Highly Moisturising

Lanolin locks moisture into the skin and allows the skin the rejuvenate itself from within.

Natural Alternative

Lanolin is a excellent natural alternative to petroleum-based or synthetic waxes.

Lanolin is used by formulators of natural hair and skin care ranges. It appears in products like moisturisers, balms, masks, lipsticks, lip balms, nipple creams and more.

Lanolin is washed out of freshly shorn sheep’s wool by soaking it in hot water. The waxy oils melt and naturally separate on the surface of the water where it can easily be gathered.

South African sheep farmers are held accountable for animal welfare by Code of Best Practice (COBP), Sustainable Cape Wool Standard (SCWS), Animal ProtectionAct (1962), National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NSPCA), and the Directorate Veterinary Services of the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF). These systems are in place to ensure the animals enjoy the so-called ‘Five Freedoms’: Freedom from Hunger and Thirst; Freedom from Discomfort; Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease; Freedom to Express Normal Behavior; and Freedom from Fear and Distress.

South Africa is the second largest supplier of fine Merino wool for the apparel market and has approximately 8,000 commercial and 46,000 communal wool farmers.
