LANIS Lanolin Alcohol
Wool wax alcohol, wool alcohol
Lanolin alcohols are the most powerful surface-active natural components of wool wax products. They make up around 50% of the total weight of lanolin anhydrous, in which they are chemically bound in ester compounds.
The alcohol fraction is obtained by using an alkaline treatment on the lanolin and then removing the released soaps. It is refined further via a multi-stage molecular distillation process, which improves colour and odour. This produces a purified, semi-crystalline and practically colourless wax.
In addition to the following products, the refining process for lanolin alcohol can be customised to meet the requirements of different pharmacopoeias around the world.
