Lanolin Oil is a medium-dark brown liquid extracted from lanolin wax, which is extracted from sheep's wool. Lanolin Oil is a fantastic emollient which smooths, softens, and protects the skin. It is commonly used to treat or prevent dry, itchy, rough, and scaly skin. In formulations it can be used instead of lanolin wax for a lighter feel. It can also be used as a substitute for mineral oil in recipes. It is a great product for your balms, hair treatments, hair conditioners, body oils, bath oils, rich creams, and more!
