This is why Substance Nipple Cream is wonderful! It will help to reduce the pain by calming down the swelling & healing the skin and you don't have to wash it off! It can also be used as a healing ointment for other areas of the body such as chapped lips, noses, cheeks & other minor skin irritations.

Why Lanolin-free? Lanolin is derived from sheep’s skin and is often used in products as a moisture barrier. For some, concerns over trace pesticides and antibiotic residue come into play. Also of concern, are those who have wool sensitive allergies. Substance provides a nipple cream that alleviates such concerns, by using only plant derived edible and safe ingredients.
