So, what is acetylated lanolin?

Acetylated lanolin is a waxy substance derived from sheep's wool. It is a versatile ingredient that is commonly used in cosmetics and personal care products as an emollient, moisturizer, and skin conditioning agent. The acetylation process modifies the structure of the lanolin, making it more soluble and easier to incorporate into formulations. It has excellent water-binding properties, which help to hydrate and protect the skin, and is also a natural source of cholesterol, which is essential for maintaining healthy skin. Acetylated lanolin is a popular ingredient in lip balms, lotions, creams, and other skincare products due to its moisturizing and nourishing benefits.
