Derived from Sugarcane
Squalane is a saturated lipid which has exceptional emollient and hydrating properties. It is classed as non-comedogenic (non-pore-clogging) and is suitable for all skin types. Not only is squalane beneficial to the skin, it can also provide several benefits to the hair- moisturising the hair can help increase shine and prevent breakage.
Squalane vs Squalene
In simple terms, squalane is a more stable version of squalene (with an ‘e’) which is an unsaturated lipid naturally produced by human skin cells as a moisturising component of sebum. With age, the amount of squalene produced by the human body decreases which can result in dry and cracked skin. Squalene can be derived from several plant sources including olives, rice bran and sugarcane; we believe sugarcane to be the superior source. However, squalene itself is extremely susceptible to auto-oxidation due to it being an unsaturated lipid. To avoid this, squalene can be saturated via a hydrogenation reaction to produce squalane, which is highly stable unlike its counterpart, whilst maintaining the same properties.
This product uses 100% pure sugarcane-derived squalane that is ECOCERT approved.
