Hi, my question is because I recently decided to try dermarolling on a serious manner and read the articles from Owndoc where they sell/recommend using the ointment named Infadolan for aftercare, and also in the forums I found some people claiming that the ointment itself was being excellent for the eye area wrinkles.
Looking at the ingredients of this Infadolan ointment ingredients are:
Infadolan's ingredients:

Retinyl acetate: 48 000 IU in 30 g
Vit. D2: 9 000 IU in 30 g
The ointment base is white wax, natural lanoline and white vaseline.


I'm interested in learning if anyone has tried DIY creams/ointments with lanolin and how to work with it as a base. How do I mix ingredients with it? Do I have to heat it to emulsify? How much of the base in Infadolan of each ingredient would be?

I would like to give it a shot as I've received the Infadolan and my skin is liking it even though it has a very thick consistency, it is wonderful for my eczema affected skin, and I'm thinking that it may be the lanolin that is helping.
I've already checked and I can buy lanolin easily, so just want advice on how to mix it or even if anyone knows if it is worthwhile to use it on its own like as a vaseline substitute.
TIA, Smile

I can't speak to the DIY angle of your question, but I do use pure lanolin. I have the Now Foods brand. It is the ONLY thing I have ever found that helps my dry, cracked cuticles. I'm in health care, therefore a frequent hand washer. The lanolin does not smell so great, but I am not particularly bothered by it. It is somewhat like Vaseline Petroleum Jelly in consistency, slightly thicker and waxier. I have never considered using it anywhere other than my hands or feet, but after reading your post, I may try it on my lips or try to blend it with some lotion for my body. HTH

Hi mangosteen, yes it has helped a lot. Just to know that you find it soooo good for cuticles is enough for me to go try it. I was not aware of the fact that the natural lanolin would have a certain scent, as the Infadolan product does not smell at all. I'm looking forward to trying out the natural stuff! Smile

I haven't tried straight lanolin (which is weird because I've tried ever other freakin' thing under the sun for DIY Laughing ) but I've used something called 'lanolin oil.'

It didn't emulsify in water like lanolin is supposed to, but it was SO hydrating. I used it for my feet and elbows, mixed with shea and some oils. Perfect!
