The Boonton Farmers Market is starting June 7th, 2014. So, you know what I’m doing…I’m getting ready! This will be our third year. Wow, did I just say that? yes I did. I love being at the market. There are lots of great people!
Sometimes those people (our customers) give us reasons why they buy the soap they buy. There is one customer that gave me a lesson…..The first time she (I’ll call her Mary) Mary came to the table she asked if I had any Lanolin soaps. Mary told me nothing beats Lanolin soap for dry skin and she won’t use any other kind. Thank God, I did have some lanolin soaps that day because she’s been buying them ever since.
Even though I had made some Lanolin Soaps I hadn’t really tested them out. To tell you the truth it wasn’t until recently when I had made some Lip Balms with a bit off lanolin in them. I had a test panel and one of the Testers told me that the lip balm was the best she’s Ever used. She went on to say that it stays on All Day and it moisturizes her lips like no other Lip Balm out there. (she’s a true Lip Balmer) That really peeked my interest.
So, what is Lanolin exactly and why does it Rock?
Well, I found out it’s a waxy substance which can be called Wool Wax, Wool Grease or Wool Fat. It’s extracted from Sheep Wool….(don’t worry the sheep is not harmed in any way)
No wonder that Mary and the Lip Balm Tester LOVE the products with Lanolin. No wonder Mary will only use Lanolin Soaps!
Because Lanolin is chemically similar to human skin it makes it perfect for Soaps, lotions and skincare products! You can READ more about Lanolin at Lanolin.com
