Wool Grease

Wool grease is a natural by-product of the scouring processes at the Compass manufacturing facilities. It is also a versatile compound which is internationally recognized and incorporated into various other products including beauty creams as well as commercial uses such as lubricant for machineries. The wool grease produced by Compass is of a high quality, which is also further refined into Lanolin.

Broadly, lanolin and its derivatives are used as key ingredients in some of the world’s most popular brands of pharmaceuticals (for topical applications), personal care/cosmetics and toiletries. Without lanolin, these products will not have the required qualities of emollient, moisturizer, water-in-oil emulsifier or co-emulsifier, plasticizer, dispersing agent and super fatting agent – all rolled into one.

Environmental Sustainability

Compass’ principles and vision has lead the company down a path of sustainable operations -and we do not compromise on quality. Our responsibility in preserving our environment as just as important to us as our commitment to our clients. Our strategies are designed to leave minimal environmental footprints, ensuring that the products we made are done in a manner that is ethical and environmentally friendly for the benefit of our future generations.

We are currently using APEO and NPEO free chemicals which complies to REACH standard in the scouring process. Our Scoured Wool and Wool Tops have complied and been certified to OEKO-TEX Standard 100.

The capacity of our effluent treatment plant is about 20,000 m3 of effluent per month.

In our pipeline, we have plans to implement water recycling systems and the installation of solar panels to utilize solar power as an alternative source of electricity.

We are exploring to utilize our vast rooftop space to install solar panels as we intend to reduce our reliance on fuel and in the process, reducing greenhouse gas emission and pollution.

Initiatives we have recently undertaken include the collection of rainwater within the premises. The water collected will be filtered and fed back into the system to ensure clean water is accessible always for scouring or even non-portable purposes like sanitation.

With the future implementation of the water recycling systems and utilizing renewable energy like solar power, we seek to provide effective ways for Compass Wool to reduce operating cost while becoming energy efficient and environmentally responsible.  

Packaging materials will also be recyclable.  in the pipeline next 4- 6 months
