Squalane Skincare

What is squalane?

Squalane is the stable version of squalene. Squalene is produced naturally in our sebaceous glands. It protects the outer layer of skin and keeps it hydrated. To make squalene more shelf-stable and product friendly it goes through a hydrogenation process to become squalane. This allows it to last longer in cosmetic formulas.

What is squalane derived from?

Squalene can be found in our sebaceous glands, the liver of sharks and plant sources. As plants are the most ethical and environmentally friendly option, most squalane in cosmetics comes from olive oil, sugar cane and rice.

Is squalane good for skin?

Yes, squalane is incredibly nourishing as it imitates our skin's natural moisture. When used in oils, moisturisers and lotions, squalane can help lock in hydration, calm irritation and improve elasticity. This ensures a youthful, healthy-looking complexion.
