Lanolin wax is the semisolid fraction from whole lanolin. It is used as a hair or skin-conditioning agent, viscosity modifier and binder. Most personal care products with lanolin wax fall into the “Hair Styling” category. We have found the systems are thick emulsions with a high percentage of lanolin wax. These products are typically categorized as stylers, waxes, putties, or fibers. Koster Keunen has determined that Kester Wax CT:
- Can replace up to 10% lanolin wax in firm emulsion hair stylers.
- Can act as a direct replacement pending on the type of lanolin wax* and the amount to be replaced.
