Lanolin and derivatives

Designed and perfected by nature, lanolin is known to contain components that are chemically and physically similar to human stratum corneum lipids and has a very long history of safe use on human skin - approximately 7,000 years! As such lanolin displays a natural affinity to the skin and is able to imitate and augment many of the functions of the lipids found within.

With this biomimetic functionality, plus a host of physical and aesthetic benefits, lanolin is a unique and exceptionally versatile ingredient with proven efficacy in a wide range of household and industrial cleaning applications, where skin/surface care and safety are critical.
