Disana Lanolin Conditioner Overview
Disana Lanolin Conditioner is essential for reapplying natural lanolin to all your woolen nappy covers wool fibres to keep them water resistant.
When the wool is still a fleece and attached to the sheep, the sheep produces a natural substance called lanolin.
Lanolin is like a natural wax, it coats the sheep's wool, protects the sheep by making its fleece waterproof. Keeping it snug and warm in even the harshest of winters, yet remaining breathable so the sheep doesn’t overheat in summer. Clever stuff!
Why do I need to lanolise my wool wraps?
Wool naturally repels dirt and the lanolin neutralises odours and liquids. Due to these natural properties of wool, woollen items only need to be washed occassionally and are just aired inbetween washes.
Lanolin on the woolen fibres gets "used up" as it neutralises urine. Disana Lanolin Conditioner replaces this used lanolin, the wool fibres absorb the lanolin and the woollen product is protected again.
Lanolin is a very important part of the woollen items self-cleaning power to keep them clean and fresh by only airing.
