Cerate consists essentially of wax (for which resin or spermaceti is sometimes substituted) mixed with oil, lard, and various medicinal ingredients. The cerate (formerly called simply cerate) of the United States Pharmacopoeia is a mixture of three parts of white wax and seven parts of lard.
It takes its name from its primary ingredient, wax, called in Latin cera.
