Review on how Lanolab soothes mosquito bites


Why does Lanolab work so well on soothing mosquito bites?

Here’s why Lanolab works so well on bites: our miracle balm is packed with papain, an enzyme that is extracted from the fruit of the papaya. This hard-working enzyme has both anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, so those sore, itchy mosquito bites don’t stand a chance when you apply a dab of balm to the area. Keep a tube of Lanolab next to your bed, and in your handbag, so you’re always armed and ready when there are mozzies about!


Lanolab also has many other pharmaceutical uses


One-stop-shop for first-aid with Lanolab


A well-stocked first-aid kit is a must for every home. Having the right supplies will ensure you can handle any minor emergency at a moment’s notice. Your parents had first aid kits filled with antibacterial ointments and aqueous creams.

What they didn’t have, was Lanolab – the one-stop-shop for assisting with minor injuries such as cuts, grazes, and minor burns, also soothe nappy rash and itchy bites making it suitable for the whole family.

We’ve said it before – Lanolab is the balm dot com! The benefits that the combined ingredients of lanolin and papaya extract provide are endless.

Ask the pharmacist

We chatted to the pharmacist, Yasin Khan to ask him what the essentials are that he would pack in his first-aid kit.

Yasin worked as a pharmacist dispensing medication for over 9 years before furthering his studies and completing an MBA and for this reason, we couldn’t think of a more experienced person in the pharmaceutical industry to share insight into the necessities for a first-aid box.

“Remember, these first-aid kit items should aid with battling 80% of the problems that people normally encounter. A first-aid kit is not for long term treatment, its aim is to stabilise until you are able to seek further medical attention” says Yasin.

First-aid kit checklist


Besides for Lanolab multi-use balm for any minor burn on a small patch of skin, itchy bite, chafe cut or graze here is the list of other first-aid items that Yasin recommends:

Latex gloves

Adhesive bandages & plasters

Your baby bag essential balm, Lanolab


Most moms are familiar with the ingredient lanolin which is known as a nipple cream saviour. Lanolab contains this wonder ingredient too and is ideal to use to heal sore and cracked nipples. It works miracles in soothing nappy rashes too. The papaya extract might have a very slight bitter taste and you also would not want your baby to swallow ” bits” of the balm but there should be no other reason to need to wipe it off before breastfeeding.

ALWAYS  consult your GP or paediatrician first if you are not sure or concerned that you or your baby might have an allergic reaction to wool ( lanolin.)
