Lanocerin™ Lanolin Product
Odor: characteristic
Use: Lanocerin lanolin product is an effective emulsifying agent, emollient and moisturizer for body lotions. Lanocerin lanolin product is recommended for use in hair and skin care products including pomades, make-up and molded sticks. Lanocerin lanolin product is derived from lanolin. It is an easy-to-use waxy solid form. Its unique solubility properties make an excellent candidate for modifying the texture of formulations. In addition, its skin adhesion properties make it a choice for long wear color formulations. Recommended use levels range from 0.5% to 5.0%, depending on application.
