Composition and Description
LANOLIN EP ELP 3% is produced from the multi-stage refining of wool grease, a natural, renewable raw material which is obtained from the scouring (washing) of raw wool. It is manufactured to fully meet the requirements of current European Pharmacopoeia. In addition the reduced free lanolin alcohols allow the description of ‘hypo-allergenic lanolin’ to be applied and the product will conform to the US Pharmacopoeia monograph for ‘Modified Lanolin’. Anhydrous Lanolin EP ELP3% is especially recommended in pharmaceutical preparations and skin treatment products.

LANOLIN EP ELP 3% meets the requirements of the current European Pharmacopoeia and is characterized by its high purity, light color, low odor and very low pesticide level. It is purified by molecular distillation that results into less than 3% of free wool wax alcohols. Since it is manufactured gently in modern facilities, the initial peroxide value (measure of oxidation) is very low. Therefore LANOLIN EP ELP 3% does not need additional stabilizers. Nevertheless, a shelf life of 2 years is guaranteed. Upon request, BHT can be added as stabilizers.

LANOLIN EP ELP 3% is especially suitable for the use in baby creams and lotions, on sensitive or damaged skin and whenever highest purity is required.

Usage of LANOLIN EP ELP 3% is easy to use and it may be processed both cold and melted forms. It is non-hazardous and melts easily with a relatively low volatility. Prolonged heating above the melting point should be avoided. However, heat sterilization is possible. 

Solubility at room temperature
