PEG-75 Lanolin is a cosmetic ingredient commonly used in personal care products such as creams, lotions, and hair care products. It is derived from lanolin, a waxy substance extracted from sheep’s wool.
PEG-75 Lanolin is a polyethylene glycol (PEG) derivative of lanolin. PEGs are widely used in cosmetics as emulsifiers, solvents, and moisturizing agents. They help to stabilize the formulation, improve texture, and enhance the spreadability of the product.
Lanolin itself is known for its moisturizing and emollient properties. It helps to soften and smooth the skin by preventing water loss and improving the skin’s natural barrier function. Lanolin is often used in skincare products to provide hydration and relieve dryness.
PEG-75 Lanolin offers similar benefits to lanolin but with some modifications due to its PEG structure. It is typically used as a non-greasy emollient and humectant, meaning it helps to retain moisture in the skin. It can provide a soft and smooth feel to cosmetic formulations and is often used to improve the texture and spreadability of creams and lotions.
