    I’m a huge fan of lanolin as well. It’s one of the few non-plant-based ingredients I happily use. I have been ‘fooling around’ with a vegetable-based lanolin substitute over the past couple of years to see if it measures up to the real thing. So far lanolin wins, but I will continue trying it out.
