  • Are there any lanolin-free lubricating ointments available in Europe?

    Does anyone know if there are any brands of lanolin-free lubricating ointment available in Europe?
    Note: other names for lanolin include "lanolin alcohol" and "wool fat".

    In N. America, Soothe and Retaine PM are options... but I can't find those here. I'm wondering if there are any local European manufacturers of a similar lanolin-free product.

    The only ingredients in the ointment should be white petrolatum and mineral oil (I do not want a gel, because my eyes can't tolerate those unfortunately). I don't care what brand it is, as long as it meets those criteria :-)

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help. I'd prefer to buy some from an EU source if I can.

    What about approaching a compound pharmacy for obtaining a preservative free and lanolin free ointment?

      I have trust issues hehe... if they accidentally contaminate it with bacteria/fungus/virus, it'll sit on my corneas all night long to incubate, multiply, and cause an infection. I won't risk it. Commercially available products will be way less likely to be contaminated.

      Also, I don't even think there is a compounding pharmacy where I'm currently located.

      Worst case if I don't find a suitable product from within the EU, I'll get someone from back home to ship me some from my stash in storage. But I'd prefer the easier route of simply buying some online from the EU. :-)
