Do you have any idea how long I’ve been trying to get my hands on Lano 101 Ointment Superbalm? It was the one product line I forgot to pick up while in Australia — I don’t know how it slipped my mind! Fortunately, the cult favorite and award winning lip balm (like literally winner every beauty award ever), alongside favorites from the collection have landed in the US and are exclusive to Net-A-Porter.com.
Fun back story, Lanolin is the world’s oldest skincare ingredient, dating back to 700 BC. As the name suggests, medical grade lanolin is used in every hospital in the Western world – to heal post-surgery wounds, as newborn nursing cream and in burn units.
Having grown up using Lanolin on her lips and unable to find the perfect lip balm, beauty veteran and now LANO founder, Kirsten Carriol decided to take matters into her own hands. Wanting to make it even better she developed an Ultra Medical Grade lanolin which is odorless, colorless, non-sticky and 3x more pure.
Lanolin is a 100% natural substance found on the wool of sheep that helps keep their coats protected and dry. It’s unique in three ways: it’s semi-occlusive allowing skin to self-hydrate from within, it is a moisture reservoir, holding up to 400% its weight in moisture, and more than any other natural or synthetic ingredient, the molecular structure of lanolin closely resembles that of human skin.
Launching exclusively at Net-a-Porter this month, the collection includes the Original 101 Ointment Multipurpose Superbalm, Lemonade Lip Treatment, Banana Balm Lip Sheen 3-in-1, Tinted Balm SPF 30, Rose Hand Cream Intense, Rose Hand Cream Everyday, Golden Dry Skin Salve, and Everywhere Multi-Cream Allover. Lanolips is free of artificial fragrances, parabens, petrolatum, mineral oil, and sulfates.
