Squalane Oil is created from squalene (notice the different spelling), a poly-unsaturated hydrocarbon liquid naturally found in animals and plants. Squalene is also a fat-soluble antioxidant that makes up about 12 percent of the skin’s sebum. Sebum is an oily substance secreted by the the sebaceous glands that helps to keep skin and hair moisturized. Squalene is naturally present in the skin. However, like collagen, it decreases as the aging process take place.
Squalane Oil is a topical, natural product that can be used to recover the lost moisture. However, there are more benefits to it than just that. It has been proven to be able to increase hydration of the skin which will result in a healthier glow. It can also reduce the signs of aging, redness, inflammation and acne breakouts. As a lightweight, plant-derived substance high in fatty acids and antioxidants, it can help to support optimal skin health.
In the past, squalane oil was traditionally derived from the livers of deep-sea sharks. However, our pure Squalane Oil is made from a more environmental-friendly and cruelty-free source, which is the olive plant.
