It is said that sheep-shearers have exceptionally soft hands, due to the lanolin in the fleeces they handle. Whether or not this is true and whether those tough people would like it to be known if it were, there is no doubt that lanolin is renowned for its emollient properties.
Exclusive to Mitchell's for over 70 years from a recipe formulated almost a century ago, it is called simply Mitchell's WOOL FAT SOAP. Delicately perfumed WOOL FAT SOAP has no strong synthetic scent, or coloring agents, to detract from its purity. Although no medicinal claims are made for it, WOOL FAT SOAP is especially suitable for sensitive skins and has often been recommended by members of the medical profession to help alleviate certain skin complaints. Being so rich in lanolin, its gentle action is very soothing and regular use leaves the skin satin-smooth.
