Ingredient Highlight: Squalane

Squalane is a skincare ingredient that has been gaining popularity in recent years. It is a natural moisturising factor that is found in the human body & is also present in various plants & animals. Squalane is known for its many benefits for the skin, which is why it has become a popular ingredient in skincare products. In this blog, we will explore the benefits of Squalane in skincare.

Moisturising properties

One of the main benefits of Squalane is its moisturising properties. It is a highly effective emollient that helps to lock in moisture & prevent water loss from the skin. Squalane has a lightweight texture that is easily absorbed into the skin, leaving it feeling soft & supple. It can be used on all skin types, including oily skin, as it is non-comedogenic & does not clog pores.

Anti-ageing benefits

Squalane also has anti-ageing benefits for the skin. It is a powerful antioxidant that helps to neutralise free radicals, which can cause damage to the skin & accelerate the ageing process. By using skincare products containing Squalane, you can help to protect your skin from environmental damage & prevent the signs of ageing.

Improves skin texture

Squalane can also help to improve the texture of the skin. It has a unique ability to penetrate deeply into the skin, which can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. Squalane also has a smoothing effect on the skin, which can help to improve the overall texture & tone.

Soothes & calms the skin

Squalane has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to soothe & calm the skin. It is particularly useful for those with sensitive skin, as it can help to reduce redness & irritation. Squalane can also help to strengthen the skin barrier, which can help to prevent further damage & irritation.
