What does the “BPA and BPS Free” Icon on your packaging mean?
The chemical bisphenol-A (BPA) is widely known to be a hormone disrupter. Acting like an estrogen imposter, BPA has been linked to cancer, type 2 diabetes, depression, heart disease and a number of other ailments. BPA can be especially dangerous in pregnancy, infancy and childhood – so much so that many governments around the world have banned BPA in the production of baby bottles (as well as other products).
The chemical bisphenol-S (BPS) is used as a plasticizer by some manufacturers and, in many cases, has been used to replace BPA. BPS is also a hormone disrupter, but is currently allowed for the production of baby bottles and similar products.
Because safety is a top priority for Lansinoh, we have taken proactive measures to ensure our Lansinoh® mOmma® bottles with NaturalWave® Nipples are BPA and BPS free.

Is Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin BPA and BPS Free?
Yes! Because safety is a top priority for Lansinoh, we have taken proactive measures to ensure Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin is both BPA and BPS Free.
Can I still use my Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin if it expired?
If your tube has expired, we do not recommend using it when breastfeeding – you should purchase a fresh tube. Don’t worry if you have used it before you noticed that it had expired. It is ultra purified and bacteriostatic, meaning it will inhibit bacteria growth.
If Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin stains my clothing or bedding, how do I remove it?
It’s best to treat it like a grease stain before washing, so use any products that contain a grease-fighting agent. If you have already washed and dried the item, it might take some special effort to remove the stain. However, because lanolin is an organic ester the stain will eventually be removed.
Where does lanolin come from?
Lanolin comes from the fleece of sheep after shearing. After the sheep is shorn, the wool is washed but the raw wool grease remains. This material undergoes a series of refinements that result in our ultra pure lanolin. One hundred pounds of wool will yield about two to four pounds of lanolin. It is a natural and renewable raw material - not a processed synthetic compound.
The term lanolin comes from the Latin word lana for wool and oleum for oil, although chemically it is a wax not an oil. It comes from a sheep’s sebaceous glands’ secretions that are deposited onto the wool fiber. It is nature’s way of protecting the fleece from the weather’s harmful elements. The reason it is so beneficial when applied to the skin is because it’s an organic ester and similar to the oil our own skin produces (sebum).
What if my pet ingests Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin?
There is no cause for concern if your pet ingests Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin. Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin is nontoxic and not listed with the Poison Control Center. It will pass through the gut harmlessly; keep in mind that your pet may have a loose stool.
What if my child ingests Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin?
Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin does not need to be removed prior to breastfeeding because it is nontoxic. It is not listed with Poison Control Center, so it is not harmful if your child ingests it. If ingested in a larger amount than used by a mother when nursing, Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin will pass through the gut harmlessly and could cause a loose stool.
How does Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin work?
Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin provides a moisture barrier that slows down the loss of internal moisture that is vital to healthy, supple skin. This eases discomfort and restores natural moisture balance to provide fast relief. It allows for the exchange of air (respiration) and moisture (transpiration) so that the skin does not become over-hydrated. The consistency of Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin is part of its effectiveness. The skin of the areola contains many nerves, and by coating the free nerve endings and placing them in a more normal environment it can provide instant relief.
Do I have to remove Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin before breastfeeding?
Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin does not need to be removed prior to breastfeeding because of the intensive purification process used in production. We do recommend applying it after breastfeeding instead of before so that it has some time to absorb into your skin.
How is Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin different from other lanolins?
There are many grades of lanolin ranging from a crude industrial grade to our ultra pure medical grade. Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin has been refined by a patented process to remove allergenic components such as the free lanolin alcohols and environmental impurities like pesticide residues and detergents. Because of the purity of Lansinoh® HPA® Lanolin, it does not have to be removed prior to breastfeeding.
