Men, in general, are becoming increasingly conscious of their looks and appearance.”

Among the most widely used ingredients in personal care, emollients find use in facial creams; cleansers; wipes; moisturizers; and other skin products. Naturally derived products have a stronger demand, as consumers are moving away from synthetic-based products to naturally derived products such as lanolin. This trend is particularly being noted in APAC countries, where China is expected to become the largest beauty market during the forecast period. China is already one of the largest importers of US-based personal care and cosmetic products.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is complicated refining process of lanolin along with high cost. Lanolin is the grease secreted by the sebaceous glands of wool-bearing animals. Crude lanolin constitutes about 5-25% of the weight of freshly shorn wool. The wool from one sheep will produce around 200-300 ml of recoverable wool grease. Lanolin is extracted by scouring the wool in hot water, with a detergent that removes dirt; crude lanolin; sweat salts; and other things stuck to the wool. The wool grease is continuously removed during this washing process by a centrifugal separator, which make it into a wax-like concentrate with melting points at a certain temperature.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
