Benefits and Uses of Squalene Oil

November 10, 2022

We can’t wait to tell you about this next superstar ingredient that your skin is going to fall in love with!

Squalene is a natural substance produced by the sebaceous (oil) glands in our skin.

It’s at its highest concentrations at birth; about 12% of our skin surface is made up of squalene at birth. However, it starts to rapidly decline as we age and as you keep reading and discover its incredible benefits, you’ll soon see why it’s so important to find ways to apply squalene topically to your skin.

While squalene is naturally found in the skin and blood, it can also be found in olives, wheat germ and rice bran.

For decades, squalene was derived from the livers of deep sea sharks, but don’t panic, our squalene is derived from olives and always cruelty-free!

Let’s dive in!

Benefits of squalene oil for different skin types

Because of its rich moisturizing properties, squalene is a top choice for dry and mature skin types.

Your pores eagerly drink up the oil, as it is a natural substance that your skin is very familiar with. Its molecular structure is so close to the skin’s own that it penetrates deep into the pores where it targets your skin care concerns at a cellular level.

Don’t be fooled though! Just because squalene is deeply hydrating and nourishing and will leave your skin feeling like a baby’s bum, doesn’t mean that it’s too greasy for other skin types. It provides unrivaled hydration while still being lightweight and will never leave your skin feeling greasy or heavy.

Squalene is wonderful for maintaining the skin’s natural barrier, ensuring clear and healthy skin. It helps to balance sebum (oil) levels in the skin and has powerful anti-inflammatory properties making it just as popular with acne and sensitive skin types.

Squalene will also help the skin to age gracefully as it fights off damaging free radicals and boosts blood circulation, which in turn promotes the formation of collagen for a smoother, plumper and more youthful complexion.

How to use squalene

Squalene is odorless, making it a popular option for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

You can slather moisturizers containing this wonderful ingredient all over your face and body as it will leave your skin feeling soft and hydrated, while improving the health of your skin with regular application.

When you add squalene to your routine, you are going to be blown away at the results! Be sure to share the good news with your friends and fam!
