Astral Original Moisturiser Review – Beautiful With Brains

You may have heard that lanolin is a common allergen. That’s not true. Not anymore, anyway. Let me explain. Lanolin is a problem only when you put it in skincare products as is. That’s when the pesticides farmers used on their crops (and sheep) make their way onto your skin and irritate it.
