The secret of Alpine Silk skincare was discovered in 1890 in one of the worlds most natural and unique environments - an isolated sheep station in Caterbury, New Zealand. All day the shearers hands were immersed in the sheeps wool. This wool was heavy with nourishing lanolin Oil. As a result the owners wife realised the natural skincare qualities of lanolin and began to make her own Lanolin based soaps and skincare. Her secret was passed down through the generations and today they continue this tradition and the secret recipe with Alpine Silk skincare. Modern science has now proven that Lanolin Oil is the closest oil produced by nature to our own skins oil. Pamper yourself with Alpine Silk skincare and enjoy beautiful, younger looking skin.
