Squalane

A plant derived, NATRUE approved emollient that offers a velvety skin feel while helping to condition the skin.

Squalane is a molecule that is found naturally in the skin as well as plants. In the skin it is produced by the hydrogenation of squalene, which converts it to a fully saturated molecule. As such, whilst it is now a very stable molecule, it has no reported antioxidant activity. However squalane is able to provide hydration benefits and provide suppleness to the skin via its emollient properties resulting in a smooth look and feel.
