Lanolin

May 13, 2009

Lanolin is a fat from wool bearing animals. It is a by-product of the process that accompanies the removal of sheep wool from the pelt. When emulsified and purified to cosmetic grade it is used in ointments and salves to treat chapped lips, diaper rash, dry and itchy skin, rough feet, minor cuts and burns, and abrasions. It is often used as a raw material for producing Vitamin D3. Although lanolin is slightly antiseptic, it actually has no medicinal benefits. Its value lies in the ease with which it penetrates the skin, and facilitating the absorption of other medicinal chemicals. The name "Oil of Olay" is derived from the word lanolin, a key ingredient in the initial product developed by Graham Wulff. Vegetable Lanolin Vegetable lanolin is of plant origin and can often be successfully substituted for pure lanolin, though its properties are not as beneficial. It absorbs water, helping to protect the skin. It contributes to stable emulsions. It is safe, effective, and non-irritating. Ecocert approved.  INCI: Butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter (and) Glyceryl rosinate (and) Olea europaea (olive) oil unsaponifiables
