Lanolin...it makes SENSE
With the green trend ever prominent, using lanolin makes exceptional SENSE when you consider its impeccable green credentials:
Lanolin is a valuable by-product of the wool industry and is regarded as an incredibly natural and sustainable resource. Not only does it utilise an otherwise waste material, the wool is often collected from sheep grazing on land unsuitable for agricultural use.
Whilst lanolin is an animal derived material, there is no negative impact, or harm to the animal. In fact, the annual removal of the sheep's fleece is an essential part of maintaining the animal's health and overall well-being.
Lanolin is 100% naturally derived and recognised by many natural cosmetic certification bodies, including BDIH and NaTrue, which list lanolin on their positive list of ingredients. Available with a variety of different antioxidants, Croda has a lanolin grade to suit even the greenest of formulators.
Lanolin is an exceptionally safe ingredient with a long history of safe use in personal care. Clinical studies have proven lanolin to be gentle on even the most sensitive of skin types. With seven out of the top 10 global nappy creams containing lanolin, it is the most SENSEible choice when safety is of prime importance.
Exceptionally versatile, lanolin is an effective biomimetic ingredient offering a unique combination of functional and sensory properties unrivalled by any other cosmetic ingredient.
