Lanolin Oil USP Grade
Lanolin, a byproduct of Merino sheep, is commonly referred to as wool wax or wool grease. Lanolin is secreted by the sebaceous glands of the Merino sheep resulting in a yellow, waxy substance. It is incorrectly referred to as wool fat; Lanolin is free of glycerides, making it a wax and not a fat.
Lanolin Oil USP Grade is a popular ingredient in lip balms as it seals moisture and prevents chapping.
Lanolin Oil is also popular as a conditioner for thick and curly hair.
Lanolin Oil USP Grade is also found in nipple skincare formulations as a treatment for cracked and sore nipples for nursing moms.
