In addition to their moisturizing properties, lanolin alcohols also have emulsifying properties that help to stabilize the formulation of creams, lotions, and other skincare products. Overall, lanolin alcohols are a versatile and effective ingredient for enhancing the health and appearance of skin and hair.
