Not sure about the rest of the country but here in PA if I am not mistaken the use of DDT is Illegal and you are not even allowed to dispose of it. For something like 30 years now!
If someone knows differently please post-curious. I really liked this article.
No help on the best lanolin though.
Yep, that's why DDT is bad - the persistence.
And on the topic of organic lanolin getting pesticide residue :LOL
OK, picutre this - we are standing in the middle of a desert. The nearest town is three hours away, population 40. The big town is seven hours away. The vegetation is saltbush, bluebush and myall trees. You can tell we're on a sheep station, because the lichen covering the sand is worn away in tracks leading to the water point, and if you walked a kilometre in any direction you'd see a fence. The bluebushes and myall trees and hundreds of years old, the only animals around are the roos and the sheep and the rabbits and the ants. Every so often a man on a motorbike will come through and shift the 200 or so sheep in this 'paddock' to another one. Every year they'll get sheared, and every so often they'll get crutched.http://www.australian-aridlands-bota....org/index.htm
THAT'S why it's organic. They wander around the desert eating saltbush, dodging flies their whole life. No pesticide.
ETA: yes, they could be drenched for pests/diseases, but obviously they wouldn't be sold as organic int at case.
