About Lanolin

Lanolin is a greasy yellow substance made from secretions (sebum) from the skin glands of sheep to condition their wool. It is a natural, animal-derived product harvested from shorn wool. Unrefined lanolin has been used for thousands of years by various cultures, and refined lanolin has been used for more than a hundred of years in ointments.Lanolin is a long-chain waxy ester that contains cholesterol, but with a different composition than human sebum. There are two common forms: lanolin and lanolin alcohol. The latter, the one that’s more commonly used in skin care, adds a molecule to provide a smoother skin feel. Because of its high fat content, lanolin is occlusive, meaning it prevents the evaporation of water from the skin (transepidermal water loss). This keeps skin moisturized and helps the skin heal.

Cosmetic, Personal Care & Pharmaceutical Grade

Lanolin helps to form emulsions and blends well with nearly all other substances used in cosmetics and personal care products. Pharmaceutical grade segment is highly demanded, as lanolin and its derivatives find wide utilization in  medicinal and personal care applications.

Lanolin Wax
Lanolin Wax has similar characteristics of Lanolin Anhydrous but with a higher melting point. Due to this property of higher melting point, it finds good use in hair creams, lipsticks, ointments, and coatings.
Lanolin Alcohol
Lanolin Alcohol is the refined unsaponifiable fraction of Lanolin having excellent w/o emulsifying properties. Lanolin Alcohol increases the water absorption capacity of hydrocarbon mixtures. It is brown to amber colored, hard waxy solid material and is widely used in creams and lotions as an emulsion stabilizer.
Ethoxylated Lanolin
Ethoxylated Lanolin is a water-soluble Lanolin with a typical faint odor. It is used in water-based applications such as shampoos, bath soap, hand wash, wet wipes, etc. Ethoxylated Lanolin is available in different forms viz lump (pieces), flakes, pestiles, 50%, and 75% aqueous solution.
