What exactly is lanolin?

Lanolin, also known as wool wax, wool fat, anhydrous wool fat or wool grease, is a greasy yellow substance secreted by the sebaceous glands of wool-bearing animals such as domestic sheep.

Lanolin (unrefined state)

In its unrefined state, lanolin is a naturally-occurring ingredient that is discharged from the glands of sheep in order to keep their wool moisturised. This leads to lanolin being a byproduct of the wool-harvesting process.

Pure anhydrous lanolin (refined state)

As a raw material, lanolin is filled with impurities. Once processing has taken place to remove these impurities, we then have what is known as pure anhydrous lanolin. This pure form has similar properties to wax. The structure of pure anhydrous lanolin is similar to skin lipids.

Common properties

Pure anhydrous lanolin has a malleable consistency. This means that it can be pressed or pounded into any shape without actually cracking the substance or making it break. This material will melt at a temperature of 40 degrees Celsius (or 104 degree Fahrenheit). Unless it’s really hot in the room, lanolin will stay hardened at room temperature. It is insoluble in water but forms very stable emulsions with it. Pure anhydrous lanolin is not water-soluble (it won’t dissolve in water). However, tiny amounts of water can be present in lanolin, which actually leads to a solid emulsion.

Lanolin uses: what are the skin benefits?

It moisturises your skin

Lanolin does not dissolve in water. So, what does this mean for your skin? In simple terms, whenever the pure anhydrous lanolin is applied, it adds a layer to your skin. This layer keeps the water trapped inside your skin. And because of this, your skin is able to stay moisturised. It’s commonly used as a moisturiser cream to soothe skin and to treat chapped lips, nappy rash, dry skin, itchy skin, rough feet, and skin abrasions.

It helps condition your head hair

Pure lanolin is a great additive to any haircare routine and is especially useful for thick curly hair as one of its best qualities is its ability to lock in moisture while maintaining softness.

It helps men maintain their facial hair

Lanolin is a common product in beard balm. This helps men maintain a nice hold on their facial hair. Lanolin can also be found in shaving cream for men/women.

What products are frequently mixed with lanolin?

Pure lanolin can be found in many different cosmetic products. Below is a list of common products that take advantage of this wondrous, naturally-occurring substance:

  • Hairspray
  • Deodorant
  • Chapstick, lipstick, and lip balm
  • Soap, conditioners, and body wash

It’s true that pure anhydrous lanolin can offer many cosmetic benefits. However, keeping safety in mind, it’s important to refrain from using this substance if you’re allergic to wool (or lanolin itself). It should be noted that lanolin allergies are extremely rare. But still, they do exist.

    I am 87 years old and have been using a 50/50 mix of anhydrous lanolin and light olive oil for decades as a skin lotion—just mix, heat and stir. Even my doctor comments on the excellent, wrinkle free condition of my skin!

    Great product, so good was willing to pay for shipping to California. Searched for a product that was pure in the United States, forget it all were adulterated.

    I am very happy with this product. The quality is excellent, I use it for my daughter's woolen nappy pants and there are no leaks once lanolised. The product arrived super quick and I even got free Epson salts. Brilliant shopping experience. Thank-you

    I used to purchase my Lanolin from New Zealand only because I couldn't find the quality I required for my business. N-Essentials have now become my preffered supplier as their Lanolin has minimal aroma and the perfect consistency for my needs. Keep up the quality products

    I use lanolin to waterproof my wooly night diaper covers. Diaper stores charge $15 for a 10g jar! I bought 500g and I have enough to lanolize my twins nappy covers until they're done with night nappies! I'm absolutely going to be spreading the word to the other mums I know since lanolin has so many uses!
