Natural, cruelty-free and with a “laid-back Aussie vibe,” but most of all effective and (as the team knows first-hand) reliable.
This is Lanolips, the awarded Australian-born brand, part of the InStyle Hall Of Fame and loved all over the world for its wonder balms and skin salves.
For lips + hands + allover.
Lanolips – Pills of History
History has it that Kirsten Carriol, the founder behind the tiny and travel-sizes (but life-saving) balms, had to catch a plane when she had the great idea of creating the 100% natural brand that changed the relationship between wool and skincare forever. That long flight became her light bulb moment, and we couldn’t be happier it happened.
Kirsten is Australian, and she grew up in a farm where her father, a DNA scientist, taught her that lanolin, a particular wax that is found on the wool of ships to protect their coat and keep it dry, mimics human oils – making it the perfect waterproof and gentle moisturizer for all skin types. Having been treated with lanolin-based moisturizers as a child (most likely with balms produced in the family farm), Kirsten knew very well the many properties of lanolin and created Lanolips from passion, research, and personal experience.
Lanolips – From Wool to Skincare
The idea behind the brand is what the Lanolips team calls Natures Wonder Moisturiser™, which is also the secret and main strength of the brand. Lanolin may be used in many ways for its many properties, but Lanolips is the first brand to make it the absolute center of its production and marketing, turning this incredible and versatile product into something fully millennial and up-to-date.
Studies proved that the molecular structure of lanolin (also called Sheep Wax) mimics human skin lipids, making it the most skin-compatible ingredient around, moisturizing with a luxurious balm without being aggressive (for example, lanolin-based products are used for treating the delicate skin of babies). Up to now the balms, free of parabens, moisturizer, and artificial fragrances but often enriched with natural oils, have won many awards, from the Cosmopolitan beauty Award 2018 to the Bazaar top 50, and is also Approved by Violet Code and 4-times winner of the InStyle Best Beauty Buys.
