So, what is lanolin(e)?

Lanolin, also known as wool wax or wool grease, is a natural substance extracted from sheep's wool. It's a waxy substance that helps sheep maintain the moisture of their wool, and it has been used for centuries in a variety of applications, including cosmetics, skincare, and medicinal ointments. Lanolin is highly prized for its emollient and moisturizing properties, making it a popular ingredient in lotions, creams, and lip balms. It's also used in the textile industry as a natural lubricant and water repellent. Despite being derived from animals, lanolin is widely considered safe for use in cosmetics and personal care products, and it's a popular choice among consumers looking for natural, sustainable ingredients.
