Is there a difference between using Lanolin(Lansinoh) in the tube, and liquid lanolin for lanolizing. There, did I say lanolin enough times in one sentence? :LOL

The liquid lanolin I have is marked 100% pure lanolin. It is sold at the health food store for a base for home made cosmetics. It can be used to treat minor burns. Also it is good for sore nipples.
: I keep forgetting that is what is actually for. It is very useful all the way around!

No real difference. Just the price. Lansinoh is usually more expensive because it's being marketed at a specific use... breastfeeding. You can usually get 100% lanolin in a tube from your pharmacist (some keep it in stock, others need to order it) for cheaper. A lot of people use the Lansinoh because they already have it around the house. :LOL Liquid is easier to work with because you don't have the "congealing" issue when the water cools down.

lansinoh is carefully refined so that babes suckling on it dont consume wool fiber, which in large doses can cause genuine wool allergies. if a mama uses lanolin on her breasts a lot, this is the safest lanolin to use.

that is the only difference. i prefer plain lanolin, which is usually thinner in consistency and much less expensive.

I'm really liking the liquid lanolin I have. It's much easier to work with then the lansinoh.

It can be easier to 'melt' the liquid lanolin into the water sometimes, but they essentially give you the same effect - a lanolinized cover.

There! I have used lanolin three times in my post, as well! :LOL
