Question about skin moisterizers and Lanolin.

Hey,

I'm wriing to ask about various options I may have as a raw foodist for skin moisterizers, what do others out there use, as well as shampoo and hair care products. Also I was curious about liquid Lanolin, what opinions do people have about it is it safe or potentially harmful like petrolium jelly.

thanks

Google mulesing. It's a horrible thing that they do to the rear end of the sheep. I'd not purchase lanolin because of it.

Petrolatum is a largely inert substance tolerated by more people than plant oils, which have compounds that can irritate many people when used topically. But if you want an alternative, use crisco, it is hydrogenated and basically nonreactive.

I would never use lanolin. The number of chemicals used on sheep are insane. And it's concentrated in the oils in the skin/wool. Never mind the vegetarian impact of it... for health reasons alone do not use it!!

a lot of people use coconut oil for moisturizer and to wash their face with. it works very nice.

I've also heard of people using lemon, sesami seeds, honey, rose water, avocado and baking soda for skin cleansing.

these "products" work surprisingly well.
