Lanolin USP Grade

Lanolin is known as wool wax or wool fat. Readily absorbed by the skin, lanolin resembles the skin’s own sebum. It is highly emollient and an effective moisturizer. It has been used for 1,000 years by humans for many purposes. Description: Lanolin is a soft, yellow, waxy substance secreted by the sebaceous glands of sheep. Its purpose is to waterproof and protect wool. Chemically, lanolin is a complex mixture of esters, fatty acids, and alcohols.

Lanolin is extracted from raw wool by squeezing mechanically. Crude lanolin makes up between 5-25% of the weight of freshly shorn wool. Lanolin is an excellent moisturizing ingredient, as it emulsifies water on the skin and holds it there; it's cushioning, and plumping effect is noticeable. It is a perfect ingredient for conditioning and protecting the skin. It creates a protective film over the skin, allowing it to function and breathe naturally. Medical grade lanolin is used as an ointment base, as the skin easily absorbs it. It facilitates the delivery of any medicinal ingredient it carries. Lanolin is used in a number of hair treatments for its protective qualities and impressive conditioning effect.
