Pure plant squalane 2 fl.oz. Human skin contains 12% squalene, which is its principal lipid, natural emollient, moisturizer and skin anti-oxidant. Squalene is a naturally occurring substance found in olives. It is bio-compatible with the skin and has a similar molecular structure to the squalene secreted by the skin's oil glands. As we age, the squalene on our skin declines, causing dehydration, sensitivity and aging. This product helps to replenish the squalene in our skin, naturally. Squalene locks moisture into the skin, hydrates, revitalizes and strengthens skin tissue through hydration, combats dryness and flaky skin, and protects the skin from harsh environmental elements. Squalene is non-clogging, and ideal for sensitive skin, and skin prone to irritation and redness. Unlike products produced in Asia from shark livers, our squalane is extracted from olives, thus meeting the ethical standards of our company.
