So, what is lanolin linoleate?

Lanolin linoleate is a natural emollient and moisturizer derived from sheep's wool. It is a combination of lanolin, a waxy substance secreted by sheep's skin, and linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid found in vegetable oils. Lanolin linoleate is commonly used in skincare products due to its ability to penetrate the skin deeply and provide long-lasting hydration. It is particularly beneficial for dry, sensitive, or mature skin as it helps to soothe and nourish while improving the skin's barrier function. Lanolin linoleate is also used in hair care products to provide conditioning and shine.
