Ultra Pure Lanolin

The intensive healing of lanolin assists in restoring the feet to a smooth, healthy condition.

Lanolin is the natural oil extracted from sheep's wool and is the nearest chemical substance to the natural lubricant of human skin known as Sebum, which acts to protect and waterproof the skin, and keep them from becoming dry, brittle and cracked.

Sebum is produced from Sebaceous glands, which exist in humans throughout the skin except in the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Lanolin is hence considered one of natures own oils, and it is therefore the best moisture your skin can get, making it look and feel younger and softer.

The grade of lanolin used in Nixsi is ultra-pure and is virtually free from the lanolin oils which cause allergic reactions. Nixsi therefore causes no lanolin triggered allergic or irritant reactions, even in patients with severely compromised skin. Therefore patients who are hypersensitive to Lanolin can use Nixsi, benefiting from the incredible moisturizing and healing properties of lanolin without suffering from its unpleasant side effects.
