Olive Squalane is fully fractionated but keeps all the lipid structure that contributes to it’s compatibility with skin . It is closer to the molecular structure of human sebum than jojoba so is great for oily complexions as well as mature/dry skin. It is slowly absorbed into the skin making its use for sensitive skin more warranted as it is non-irritating. Squalane is actually naturally produced by the body, but drastically reduces after 30 years of age, contributing to dry skin.Adding squalane to your moisturiser recipe will help restore the proper balance of the skin's oils. The lack of oiliness to squalane is appealing to many, as is its lack of smell and does not clog pores. The anti-bacterial properties believed to be within squalane reduce the symptoms of existing acne reducing redness, stinging and peeling. By creating a barrier between the skin and the environment the skin can retain moisture and protect the external layer of the epidermis at the same time. Squalane is believed to fight free radicals in the skin caused by the suns UV rays to reduce dark marks caused by long term exposure to the sun if used consistently. Olive squalane hydrates and softens the skin while visually reducing fine lines and wrinkles due to its deep penetration.
