Squalane is a natural substance produced by our own bodies, however, its levels may drop as we get older. That is why it is important to find ways to add squalane into our daily lives, through foods and topical application. In fact, about 12% of our skin surface is made of squalene when we are born, but in our mid-to-late twenties, its production begins to rapidly decline and this is why a topical application is so important.
Apart from being found naturally in the human skin and blood, squalane can also be found in olives, rice bran, and wheat germ.
Squalane oil fights off skin-damaging free radicals that contribute to the signs of aging. It 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.
