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.
- Enhances skin elasticity
- Helps with fine lines
- Deeply hydrates
- Softens and smooths skin surface
