Why is there so much hype on squalane? Is it that good for your skin? In almost all major brands around the world, we bet that you will find squalane as one of the top ingredient in their formulation.
Let’s find out why ..
High purity of vegetable Squalane is derived from Olives and its’ lipids mirror human lipids in molecule size and weight. ‘Squalene’ in human is found naturally in the sebum of human skin and is believed to lubricate and protect skin, hence why squalane is preferred as it can substitute the skin natural squalene attributes. Olive’s Squalane is a light and stable version of its’ squalene, hydrogenated to make it more stable and non-oxidative.
Skincare products used squalene or squalane in their formulation to act as highly-effective emollient and natural antioxidant. Squalane locks moisture into your skin, help prevent fine lines, and ease dry patches. Squalane is versatile as it suits all range of skin types and even great for aging, acne-prone or oily skin.
In summary squalane is a great ingredient for your skin as it replenish the natural nutrients lost from the skin due to normal aging process and it contributes regenerative activity to restore a more youthful appearance as well as resistance to inflammatory conditions.
