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.

News

It is with great sadness we have discontinued shipping to Australia due to the Australian government shifting their burden of tax collection and remission to foreign sellers. Given there is no reciprocal agreement between the USA and Australia for excise tax collection, we are declining to register with Australia and start burdensome international tax collection on their behalf. Please note, this also includes the use of package forwarders as the tax collection burden is still the seller's responsibility. We're unhappy, you're unhappy, but unless the situation changes, this is where we are. Jenny

Second order from LC. Experience with customer service, shipping and product quality are superb.

I did an extensive research on suppliers, and I have to say you can pretty much get everything from here.

I highly recommend this supplier to anyone and everyone.

Happy finding!

A great experience. Prompt service, delivery in 2 days, box carefully packed with a thank you item, and when shipping costs turned out to be less than estimated, a partial refund. Email communication throughout the transaction really makes this company exceptional... Will definitely recommend to others. Thanks so much!
