About Lansinoh Lanolin
How is Lansinoh HPA Lanolin different from other lanolin? There are many refinements of lanolin from a crude industrial grade to our ultra pure medical grade. Lansinoh HPA Lanolin has been refined by a patented process to remove all allergenic components (identified as the free lanolin alcohols in combination with detergent residues left over from the wool scouring process) and to bring to the lowest level possible any environmental impurities (including pesticide residues). Because of the purity of Lansinoh HPA Lanolin, it does not have to be removed prior to breastfeeding.
How can you guarantee Lansinoh HPA Lanolin is the purest? We routinely test our lanolin to make certain that it conforms to Lansinoh's specifications with regard to allergenic components and environmental impurities. Our specifications far exceed those set by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP). Additionally, we are the only company providing lanolin with no preservatives (BHT) or detergent residues (an identified allergenic component) left over from the wool scouring process. We have never seen documentation from another lanolin provider that approaches our level of purity.
Do I have to remove it prior to breastfeeding? Lansinoh HPA Lanolin does not need to be removed prior to breastfeeding because of the intensive purification process that is used. We do recommend applying it after breastfeeding instead of before so that it has some time to absorb into your skin.
How does Lansinoh HPA Lanolin work? Lansinoh HPA is partially occlusive (unlike Vaseline, a hydrocarbon, which is completely occlusive) and allows for the exchange of air (respiration) and moisture (transpiration) so that the skin does not become over hydrated. The consistency of Lansinoh HPA Lanolin is part of its effectiveness. The skin of the areola is highly innervated and by coating the free nerve endings and placing them in a more normal environment, many mothers report instant pain relief.
