What Is Lanolin Alcohol

Lanolin alcohol consists of a refined mixture of high molecular weight (MW) alcohols (the mean MW is 370). It is lanolin's primary derivative. Lanolin alcohols are produced from only the highest-grade wool grease, to meet the numerous pharmacopoeias' strict requirements. Lanolin alcohols are the most powerful surface-active natural components of wool wax products.
When blended with cetearyl alcohol as an additional stabiliser, and mineral oil or petrolatum to change consistency, lanolin alcohol acts as a functional component in so-called absorption bases.Because lanolin alcohol's emulsifying properties are stable in a wide pH range, it can be used in acidic and alkaline w/o emulsions, such as hair bleaching agents.Another important property is lanolin alcohol's ability to help the wound-healing process. As a result, it has numerous applications in medical and pharmaceutical products. By applying it to human skin as a cream or ointment, this moisture is distributed into the intercellular space of the stratum corneum, the outermost skin layer. The emollient care effects of lanolin and its derivatives are harnessed in a wide range of skin creams, ointments and sunscreen lotions.
