Woolskin: Sheepskin Shampoo & Conditioner

Woolskin: Sheepskin Shampoo & Conditioner

Down-Under Wool is the Canadian distributor of Woolskin-Sheepskin Conditioner and Shampoo. Woolskin was developed in conjunction with the tanning industry in Australia; specifically for washing sheepskin. Many detergents will effectively wash wool, but WOOLSKIN washes and disinfects wool AND conditions the leather backing; keeping it soft and supple.  Euclan, another wool wash product on the market, is a non-rinse product. Woolskin use involves rinsing the contaminants from the wool. In fact, double rinsing is recommended. Non-rinse products will not remove contaminants. 

Woolskin is the Sheepskin Shampoo & Woolwash -  the product that conditions the leather and the wool. Do not use household detergents or Woolite for washing sheepskin..the leather backing of the sheepskin may be permanently damaged.

Woolskin contains Tea Tree Oil and Myrtle Tree Oil - natural fungicides & miticides. Woolskin is not effective against viruses.

Woolskin is specifically formulated to clean, disinfect and condition washable sheepskin.  Woolskin kills and will remove mites from all natural fibre products; including sheepskin, wool, fur, and feathers- an important consideration for people with dust mite allergies.

Woolskin  contains:

  • Tea tree oil ( Melaleuca alternifolia)- is a natural miticide (effective against dust mites), fungicide and bacteriostat.
  • unique blend of surfactants and conditioning agents that lubricate the sheepskin leather and will give an improved  lustre and handle to the wool fibre.
  • fatty liquor conditioning agents that actually enhance the sheepskin leather and wool with repeated use.

Woolskin has recently been tested by WRONZ (Wool Research Organisation of New Zealand). They found that Woolskin is effective in killing dust mites and washing with Woolskin removes all dust mite allergens. Woolskin achieves these results, using the recommended quantity, with a 4- minute wool cycle wash at 33.5°C.

Please Note: If you use a regular household detergent or Woolite  to wash a sheepskin, it may cause permanent damage to the leather backing.

 Use Woolskin to condition, clean and disinfect sheepskin rugs, sheepskin slippers and UGG boots.
