Composition and Description

PEG-75/50 LANOLIN is a polyoxyethylene condensate with the best pharmaceutical lanolin. It has an avearage chain length of 75 ethylene oxide units and an average molecular weight of about 3.970 Da. The lanolin content in PEG-75/50 LANOLIN is approximately 9%. It is a pale yellow, clear liquid, which can be directly incorporated into cosmetic formulations without further processing.


PEG-75/50 LANOLIN is nonionic and compatible with most other solubilisers including up to 10% electrolytes solutions. The solution is only slightly affected by oxidative and reducing agents. It is stable in a pH range of 2-10. A particularly unique feature of PEG-75/50 LANOLIN is its carefully controlled manufacturing that ensures minimum viscosity variations of the aqueous solutions.


PEG-75/50 LANOLIN is particularly recommended for use in aqueous or aqueous-alcoholic lotions and solutions with high clarity. Moreover, the product has emulsifying, solubilising and emollient properties and a mild cleaning effect. Main applications include skin cleansing and after-shave lotions, as well as in shampoos and detergent formulations, where viscosity is of importance.


PEG-75/50 LANOLIN is made from pharmaceutical grade lanolin that complies to the European Pharmacopoeia. It is well established in the market for many years, especially for hair and skin care products. To date, no adverse effects were observed. Patch tests that were made with the 100 % PEG-75 LANOLIN in 11 subjects with daily dosing of 2-3 hours over a period of 4 weeks showed no adverse skin reaction.


PEG-75/50 LANOLIN is an aqueous solution and can be used directly without any further processing steps. It should be stored cool in closed containers. Prolonged heating above 80 °C should be avoided.
