Squalene is a lipid produced naturally by skin cells. It is a main component in sebum. As we age we lose it. With age and loss of squalene, the skin appears dry of lipids and dehydrated. Squalene is naturally present in olives, rice bran, and sugarcane. Squalane is safe for all skin types. It’s lightweight and non-comedogenic
Plant squalene is too unstable to be used in skincare products. Squalene must be hydrogenated into squalane which is a stable form of the molecule. Hydrogenation is the process of converting squalene from an unsaturated oil to a saturated oil (squalane).
Our plant-based squalane will nourish, plump and hydrate your skin and restore a calm balance. It moisturizes and protects the skin barrier, helps to prevent water loss, and can also provide antibacterial and antioxidant benefits.
