Substitue for Lanolin in Lipgloss

What are some substitutes for lanolin for lipgloss? I know of Softisan but are there others? Thank you.

    I've heard people using cupuacu butter as an alternative but I wouldn't expect exact same performance
  • There is Plantasens VL by Clariant and SMA has a vegetable alternative to lanolin as well.  I think they are both a little more sticky but it might be worth a try

    in my experience, a combination of malleable microcrystalline wax and sucrose acetate isobutyrate makes a passable substitute
