Lanolin can reduce water lost through the skin by 20 to 30 percent. Simply put, lanolin is extremely hydrating and has the ability to soften skin to help improve the appearance and the feel of rough, dry, or flaky areas.

Lanolin is naturally able to bind moisture and can bind up to 200 times its weight in water. This grade of lanolin has had residual moisture removed to give a more oxidatively stable material with a waxy opaque appearance. 

A natural product found in the oil glands of the sheep. Lanolin is from the wool of a sheep after shearing. It is a thick, sticky sebum from sheep's wool. Lanolin is the only animal derived oil that can be harvested without detriment to the animal. Sheep are usually sheared once a year and that wool is what contains the lanolin. After washing (Scouring) in an alkaline soap solution, the crude wool wax is taken for further processing to create the clean, natural emollient we know and love.

The most common application of anhydrous lanolin, as a moisturiser, is to treat or prevent dry, rough, scaly, or itchy skin. It can also be used to treat minor skin irritations, such as nappy rash. Dry skin is a condition that results from a loss of water in the upper layer of the skin.

Usage: Between 1-10%.

Heat Tolerance: It can be heated and added into emulsions or added cold into oil blends.
