So, what is isobutylated lanolin?

Isobutylated lanolin is a derivative of lanolin, a wax secreted by the sebaceous glands of sheep. It is commonly used in cosmetics and personal care products as an emollient, moisturizer, and thickening agent. Isobutylated lanolin has a similar composition to human skin lipids, which allows it to penetrate the skin easily and provide long-lasting hydration. It is also known for its skin-soothing properties and ability to form a protective barrier on the skin's surface. Isobutylated lanolin is often preferred over regular lanolin due to its improved spreadability and texture.
