Lanolin - No animals are harmed in the production of making lanolin. After hours and hours of testing we believe the positives of using lanolin in our balms, even though it is only a small portion of the formula outweighs the negatives. Lanolin allows us to use less beeswax, but more importantly it acts as a lubricant on the skin and beard. It gives the skin and beard a soft, smooth appearance. Similar to beeswax, lanolin provides a waterproof barrier around the beard but is no where near as hard.
