Medilan™'s unique formulation and hypoallergenic properties make it a valuable component in the management of various dermatological conditions, particularly for hydrating and soothing sensitive and dry skin.

Medilan™, a ultra-refined, hypoallergenic medical grade lanolin, has proven to be very beneficial for managing dermatological conditions. Below is a brief overview of its physiological effects and roles in managing various skin conditions:

Physiological Effects of Medilan™
  1. Emollient: Medilan™ is an excellent emollient, helping to soften and smooth the skin by retaining moisture. It creates an occlusive barrier, which reduces transepidermal water loss (TEWL).
  2. Moisturizing: It is highly effective in moisturizing dry and rough skin, enhancing skin hydration by trapping and sealing in moisture.
  3. Hypoallergenic: Medilan™ is ultra-purified to minimize the risk of allergic reactions, making it suitable for sensitive skin types.
  4. Wound Healing: Medilan™ aids in the healing process of minor cuts, abrasions, and burns by maintaining a moist wound environment.
  5. Skin Barrier Function: It enhances the skin's barrier function, protecting against environmental irritants and reducing the risk of skin infections.
  6. Lipid Replenishment: Medilan™ mimics the lipids found in human skin, helping to restore the lipid barrier of the skin, especially beneficial in dry and chapped skin conditions.
  7. Skin Penetration and Hydration: It has the ability to penetrate the skin and aid in water retention in the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the skin, thus enhancing hydration.
  8. Occlusive Properties: Medilan™ helps in reducing transepidermal water loss by forming a barrier on the skin surface, thereby retaining moisture and improving skin barrier function.
Role in Managing Dermatological Conditions:
  1. Eczema and Dry Skin Conditions: Due to its soothing, hydrating, and occlusive properties, Medilan™ is a valuable ingredient in treating eczema and other dry skin conditions.
  2. Wound Healing: While primarily used for its emollient effects, the properties of Medilan™ also aid in the healing of minor wounds and skin irritations.
  3. Sensitive Skin Care: Its hypoallergenic nature makes it suitable for use in individuals with sensitive skin, reducing the risk of irritation or allergic reactions.
  4. Nipple Care in Breastfeeding: Soothes and heals cracked and sore nipples in breastfeeding mothers.
  5. Chapped Lips and Skin: It is effective in treating chapped lips and skin, providing a barrier that seals in moisture and protects from harsh weather conditions.
