Linoleum is a floor covering made from renewable materials such as solidified linseed oil (linoxyn), pine rosin, ground cork dust, wood flour, and mineral fillers such as calcium carbonate, most commonly on a burlap or canvas backing; pigments are often added to the materials.

The finest linoleum floors, known as 'inlaid', are extremely durable; they were made by joining and inlaying solid pieces of linoleum. Cheaper patterned linoleums came in different grades or gauges, and were printed with thinner layers which were more prone to wear and tear. Good quality linoleum is sufficiently flexible to be used in buildings in which more rigid material (such as ceramic tile) would crack.

Linoleum is as above, linseed oil, wood pulp etc.  Check which brand you are considering, many of the linoleums need multiple coats of wax. 

Often people call sheet vinyl linoleum --and congoleum makes sheet vinyl.  There are cheap and expensive grades of vinyl.  And most for the home market, are no wax.
