Beauty Benefits: Squalane is a hero skincare ingredient as it promotes skin elasticity, diminishes age spots and hyper pigmentation and promotes cell regeneration and oxygenation. The free-radical fighter also prevents UV damage, increases skin hydration and locks in moisture. It diminishes the production of excess oil, helps combat skin allergies, eczema, psoriasis and post-operative scar tissues and stimulates better blood circulation to rejuvenate skintone. It's basically the shit.
Squalane is highly effective because its molecular structure resembles the skin’s own design, enabling it to completely and rapidly penetrate the skin. It can permeate into the skin at a rate of 2mm per second, so it won’t clog pores or leave a greasy residue behind.
Warnings: Squalane is safe to use topically
