    Wool grease, also known as lanolin, is a yellow waxy substance secreted by the sebaceous glands of sheep. It is obtained from their fleece after it has been shorn and subjected to scouring or washing, followed by centrifugation or extraction. Wool grease acts as a waterproof barrier for the sheep, protecting their wool and skin from the elements. It is widely used in cosmetic and skincare products due to its excellent emollient properties.
