What is Squalane?

Squalane is a version of squalene, a natural substance produced by the sebaceous glands that makes up 10 to 12% of your skin’s oil. It’s a natural antioxidant and helps keep your skin supple, youthful looking, and hydrated.
According to research , squalane has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce redness and swelling. While squalane won't clog your pores, natural skin oils, dead skin cells, and bacteria can. So before applying squalane to your face, use a gentle cleanser to clean out your pores.

Unlike Hyaluronic Acid, which increases skin's water content, Squalene is a mega-hydrator that acts as a barrier to keep moisture locked in so skin is soft, supple and plump for longer. ... Be sure to use Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate first followed by Squalane to seal in moisture and maximise retention.

Designed for skin undergoing post procedural recovery such as laser treatment, microdermabrasion or chemical peels, this Squalane Gel is a pure moisturizer based in a soft hydrophobic water-trapping gel that uses Squalane derived from the natural pressing of olives.

It is a hydrating, safe, and extremely efficient conditioner excellent for nourishing and protecting the skin.

This remarkable solution's occlusive gel format ensures that the qualities of Squalane can be perfectly administered restoring equilibrium and harmony to skin in need of a soft and delicate touch.

HOW IT WORKS:

Squalane occurs naturally as a component in the human sebum and serves to lubricate and shield the skin. While we are young its levels are at its highest, but as we get older, our skin's levels of Squalane diminish rapidly. By delivering Squalane to the skin we can diminish the appearance of crepiness, creating a much healthier and hydrated appearance.

This formulation only uses Squalane derived from olives. Olive Squalane is a natural botanical extract that comes from the very first cold pressing of olives. This is significant as it is derived without any chemical extraction or intervention. Since olives only hold small quantities of Squalane, trace amounts are obtained at a time, which greatly contributes to its purity and value.

Thanks to its stability and extended shelf life, Squalane is a marvelous conditioner for dry and irritated skin. Because of its tiny molecular structure, it is extremely effective and works at a lightning fast pace. Squalane can permeate the skin at an astounding rate of 2mm per second. Being so easily absorbed, it goes to work immediately with its revitalizing, moisturizing action.

Squalane is also an antioxidant that helps against UV damage and oxidization by deactivating free radicals that are produced from UV exposure.

Delivered to the skin in gel form, this is an excellent method to gently provide the revitalizing goodness of Squalane from the olive to your skin, in a suitable and comforting solution.
