I have used automotive hand cleaners with lanolin, 3 times a day and the warts were completely gone in 3 days, not sure if it is the lanolin in it that removes the wart though.

Lanolin is secreted by glands in the skin of animals that have wool, like sheep. People have body hair, and not wool, so lanolin will not be found naturally in the human body.

You could pick up baseball glove oil at your local sporting goods store. There is also a product called lanolin that works well. Lanolin (hydrous) is an ointment that is sold to treat dry skin and can be purchased at your local pharmacy or Walgreens. Some professional Major League ballplayers use lanolin to work their gloves in as well. Lanolin will keep the glove supple, and its waterproofing properties will keep the glove from drying out.

Lanolin comes from the sebaceous glands of sheep. So yes, Lanolin is animal derived. I would be more worried about the propylparaban though. Can be carcinogenic. Cause cancer.
