Lanolin Pharmaceutical Grade

Superb skin protector

Lanolin Pharmaceutical GradeAs well as being well tolerated by the body – it is approved for uses in ophthalmic emollients and as a food additive in chewing gum bases – lanolin is also of medical interest.

The FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has approved lanolin, a natural substance, for use as a food additive, e.g. as a base for chewing gum.

Anhydrous lanolin can act as a carrier for pharmaceutically active ingredients that have to be transported into deeper layers of the skin. In burns dressings, lanolin supports the wound healing process and enhances dermal repair.

The use of lanolin acids in topical products for cutaneous infections (e.g. acne) and deodorising toiletries ultimately underlines the versatility of lanolin and its derivatives.

Besides emollient and moisturising characteristics, lanolin's protective function includes antimicrobial and disinfectant activity on human skin.
