ABOUT LANOLIN

Lanolin is the name given to refined Wool grease, which is also known as Wool Wax, Wool Fat and Adeps Lanae. Wool grease is a natural wax secreted by the sebaceous glands of sheep covering the wool fibres. It naturally protects the sheep’s skin and wool from environmental conditions, waterproofing the fibres and avoiding moisture accumulation. After rigorous refining processes, lanolin is obtained: a yellow unctuous product, solid at room temperature with a faint characteristic odour. To avoid confusion, the refined, waterless substance is referred to as ‘Anhydrous Lanolin’. In the pharmaceutical industry, however, ‘Lanolin’ is traditionally describes as water-in-oil (w/o) emulsion, with a water content of approximately 30 % by weight.

APPLICATIONS

Lanolin is versatile and widely used in pharmaceutical, personal care and industrial products. Lanolin is an excellent emollient, possessing a number of important chemical and physical similarities to human Stratum Corneum Lipids. It has strong emulsifying properties, making it an important ingredient in formulations.

It is commonly used in a diversity of Creams including Breast Creams, Baby Creams, Lotions, Ointments, Plasters, Shampoos, Hair Conditioners and other cosmetic products. Industrial applications include Leather Finishing, Rust Prevention, Plasticisers, Lubricants, Adhesives and Textiles. Pharmaceutical applications include Cholesterol and Vitamin D3.
