What does it do?

Squalane helps to support the outer layer of your skin, deeply softening and smoothing it out. It locks in moisture by creating a protective barrier to reduce dryness, dullness and irritation. It's a non-comedogenic ingredient, meaning it doesn't block pores. That makes squalane a good alternative to other oils for sensitive or breakout-prone skin.

Where does it come from?

Squalane is a natural fat in the body secreted by the sebaceous glands. It's a hydrogenated, more stable form of squalene (with an e). Squalane was previously a hotly debated ingredient as it came from shark liver. These days it usually comes from plant sources like olives and sugar cane.

Who should use it?

Squalane is safe to use multiple times a day, and works with all skin types. It combines well with alpha hydroxy acids and retinol.
