Lanolin USP
CAS # 8006-54-0

Derived from sheepís wool, lanolin is a type of natural wax composed of esters and hydroxy esters of lanolin acids and lanolin alcohols (lanolin alcohols are part of the unsaponifiables in lanolin). It also contains sterol esters and squalane, a bio-identical ingredient found in our skinís sebum and stratum corneum. Unlike vegetable, nut, or seed oils, it contains no triglycerides. Instead, it contains cholesterol, a very effective emollient found in our skin.

In all products, lanolin in a very effective moisturizer, and can be incorporated into a product hot or cold. Itís used as a barrier protectant and occlusive ingredient in lotions, creams, and anhydrous products to reduce transepidermal water loss by acting as an emollient to offer moisturizing and repel water. Lanolin may penetrate the upper layers of the stratum corneum and provide more long lasting moisturizing when compared to other natural oils.

In anhydrous products, lanolin can hold up to 50% water by weight, so it can form simple water-in-oil creams. Itís used in manicure products to adhere to the nails and cuticles to soften and moisturize.

In hair care products, lanolin can be used in small quantities in conditioners, including hair masks, conditioners, and leave in conditioners as an emollient. It can be used as a styling agent in anhydrous or water based pomades.

Lanolin is used regularly in lipsticks as a more viscous emollient and in mascara as a plasticizer. It can be used in powdered cosmetics as a binder or pressing agent, or as a moisturizing and bonding ingredient in lip glosses.

Lanolin is especially recommended for naturally dry skin or skin made drier by the elements, increasing the stratum corneumís suppleness and hydration, and speeding up skinís barrier protection mechanisms when used at as little as 3% in an emulsion.
