SQUALANE

Squalane is the hydrogenated form of squalene. Squalene is naturally found in the lipid layers of the skin, compromising about 13% of the sebum. It is a precursor of metabolic intermediates in the physiological synthesis of sterols. It is a proven antioxidant, anti-aging, hydrating and softening oil. Its light consistency helps it to easily absorb in to the skin for a smooth & silky results.

Our squalene is derived from olive oil and therefore 100% plant based. It's also superior in quality than the commonly found sugarcane derived version squalane. 

Uses: 

  • Antioxidant
  • Enhances skin elasticity
  • Helps with fine lines
  • Deeply hydrates
  • Softens and smooths skin surface
