Natural lanolin has become a very scarce and expensive raw material in recent years. Based on this synthetic lanolin the company is now able to relaunch the product Sulphirol WS for tanners after finding a new source.
Leather technicians do however grade lanolin based products as a special product group, where its leather properties are not easily matched by other products.
With this in mind Smit & zoon started, and has now finished, a project in which we cooperated with an international company that has its core businesses in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and feed/food. Our partner in this project processes thousands of tons of wool grease per year. With joint efforts we have been able to develop a synthetic lanolin product that has the same appearance, smell but above all identical leather properties when compared to the natural product.
