    Lanolin Flakes

    Lanolin PEG-75 flakes are particularly recommended for use in aqueous or aqueous-alcoholic lotions and solutions with high clarity, as they retain clarity when dissolved. Lanolin flakes offer emulsifying, solubilising and emollient properties and have a mild cleaning effect. Their main applications include skin cleansing and after-shave lotions, as well as in shampoos and detergent formulations where viscosity is of importance.

    Sizes: 500g, 1kg, 5kg, 20kg.


    • Usage in solutions: Melt lanolin flakes then add 3x the amount of hot water, stirring constantly. This mixture can then be further diluted with either hot or cold water.

      Usage in emulsions: Lanolin can be melted in the oil phase, or it can be dissolved in the aqueous phase.

      pH: 5 - 7

      HLB: 16.6

      Non-ionic.

      Soluble in hot water.

      Lanolin PEG-75

      This product is not vegan as it is produced from lanolin which is sourced from sheep wool.

      Our take on PEGs: PEG lanolin is produced from lanolin. The way we see it, the benefits of certain PEGs outweigh any perceived concerns. The Cosmetic Ingredient Review Panel has concluded that PEG-75 lanolin is safe for use in cosmetics and personal care products.

      Benefits include a way more accessible, easy to use and cheaper price point product compared to other alternatives (which also aren't always available to us in South Africa). PEGs themselves are also considered non toxic as they don't penetrate the skin barrier.

      Full disclosure: the raw materials used to produce PEGs are petroleum derivatives. In the past, PEG production methods allowed for certain toxic impurities to sometimes contaminate the end product. However, reputable ingredient suppliers have long since eliminated these impurities.

      Product rating: Grey.
