We all know that replenishing moisture is key to smoother, softer, younger-looking skin, and squalane is one of those ingredients that do exactly that.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND IT…
OVERALL CLINICAL DATA ON SPECIFIC INGREDIENT(S) & HOW THEY FUNCTION:
WHO SHOULD USE SQUALANE?
Squalane can benefit all skin types (yes, including sensitive and oily!), but is especially effective for anyone with dry and/or aging skin since it’s known to really lock in moisture.
WHAT EXACTLY IS SQUALANE?
Squalane is a high quality, biocompatible, naturally occurring emollient that works to lock in moisture and improve elasticity and suppleness in the skin. In the past it was derived from shark liver but, due to ethical concerns, is now derived from plant-based sources like sugarcane.
WHEN DO YOU USE SQUALANE?
Morning and/or night - whenever you normally use a moisturizer.
WHERE DO YOU USE SQUALANE?
Apply a few drops onto your face and neck following your serum, but before any heavy moisturizers.
WHY SHOULD I USE SQUALANE?
Squalane is super lightweight and helps to restore the proper balance of natural oils in the skin. It truly does soften and smooth, while also working to replenish essential moisture to the face that often decreases as we age.
