What Is Squalane and What Are Its Benefits for Skin?

What is Squalane Oil?

Squalane oil is a saturated byproduct of squalene oil, a polyunsaturated hydrocarbon. It mimics your skin’s natural oils, making it an excellent emollient. It’s also a natural antioxidant and has anti-tumor properties, protecting your skin from carcinogens.

Unfortunately, as we get older, our body’s natural production of squalane begins to decline which is why science is now encouraging the use of squalane oil as a potent moisturizer.

Where does Squalane Oil Come From?

Squalene isn’t only natural in humans. The moisturizer is naturally present in olives, rice bran, and sugarcane. It’s also found and harvested from shark livers. Squalane is the skin’s best moisturizer that is suitable for all skin types.

At Nine Xssentials, our squalane is derived 100% from olives making it totally sustainable and eco-friendly. 

What are some benefits of having Squalane in your serum?

This is the part we love; talking about the incredible benefits of this wonderful oil!

Because the body produces this substance naturally, the skin readily receives the oil and while it does provide superior hydration, it’s lightweight enough for all skin types and will never feel heavy or greasy on the skin.

Squalane also fights the formation of skin damaging free radicals that contribute to premature aging of the skin.

It also balances oil production, providing just enough moisture to keep the skin clear and healthy. Squalane oil also has powerful anti-aging properties and will help the skin age gracefully as well as anti-inflammatory benefits to help with skin conditions such as acne and eczema.

Squalane is stable and works perfectly fine with other ingredients such as Vitamin C, Niacinamide, Retinol etc.
