A deeply hydrating emollient and antioxidant ideal for dry and mature skin.

Squalane is an incredibly soothing, moisturizing and lightweight oil ideal for use in facial serums and product for maturing skin.

Squalane mimics Squalene, a naturally occurring part of the skin's lipid barrier. Squalane absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving a satiny finish even on oily skin. It is also ideal for adding smoothness and shine to hair.

As we age, our skin's natural Squalene levels decrease, making Squalane a great ingredient to add to mature skincare lines. The primary difference between Squalene and Squalane is that Squalene is not hydrogenated. Squalane is a slightly less powerful antioxidant than Squalene, however, the addition of hydrogen makes Squalane much more stable and easy to work with.

Although Squalene has traditionally been sourced from shark liver, it can also be found in plants, specifically olives, rice bran, and sugarcane. Our Squalane is olive-derived, vegan, and cruelty free, making it both responsibly-sourced and beneficial for the skin.
