Squalane 101: Everything You Need To Know

Squalane might sound new to your ears but your skin is pretty much familiar with it. Squalene is a natural oil that exists in your epidermis.

Squalane or Squalene?

Before moving further let's understand these two terms better!

SQUALENE

Squalene is a moisturizing emollient found naturally in Humans, Olives, Rice Bran, Sugarcane, and Shark Livers. In humans, it is present in sebum, which hydrates the skin and prevents dryness. But with age, its natural production starts decreasing. So it becomes important to find topical ways to add Squalene to your body for maintaining the hydration and health.

To serve the purpose, SQUALANE comes into action!

Squalene is said to be too unstable to be used in a skincare product because when exposed to the environment, it gets oxidized easily. To use it on the skin through an external source, it has to be hydrogenated.

Squalane

The hydrogenated form of squalene is called SQUALANE.

Squalane is a stable form of ‘squalene’ and has a longer shelf life which means it can be used in skincare. It is a hydrogenated substance that mimics the natural oil of the body. The molecular structure of the Squalane is so close to the skin’s own, that it penetrates deep to provide hydration at a cellular level. While providing superior hydration, the lightweight texture and non-comedogenic nature of the oil makes it a perfect moisturizer suitable for all skin types, even oily and sensitive too.

Now that you know what is Squalane and how does it works, it's time to introduce you to a better and intensified version of it!
