Squalane Oil has hit the beauty industry and is definitely here to stay. But, what exactly is Squalane Oil and its benefits?
We’ve got allllll the answers waiting for you below!
So, what is this Squalane Oil you speak of?
Even though Squalane is in tons of beauty products, it is actually a compound that we produce in our bodies naturally--well, we produce Squalene and what you find in your beauty products is the saturated form aka Squalane. However, as we get older, our body produces less and less of this magic substance, which is why adding it to our daily skin care routine is the ultimate anti-aging solution!
Other than being produced in the human body, Squalene is also produced in plants (like olives) and in shark liver. We keep it plant-based so there’s absolutely no worries about us using the latter in our products (yikes).
Ok, I get it, Squalane Oil is magical, but what are its benefits?
Glad you asked!
Because Squalane Oil is naturally produced by our own bodies, it is quickly recognized on a cellular level when applied, meaning our skin is super welcoming to this product. It actually mimics our skin’s way of producing oil, which helps increase elasticity and boosts cell regeneration. It’s magic works wonders on all skin types and quickly brings hydration to the skin without clogging pores or bringing a greasy or oily look!
As previously mentioned, Squalane Oil has amazing anti-aging properties, as well as anti-inflammatory properties, which helps against skin conditions like eczema, and increases blood circulation, which heightens the production of collagen (more elasticity, please!). On top of all these benefits, it’s also an antioxidant, prevents UV damage to the skin and helps fight bacteria, which makes it perfect for those who are dealing with pesky acne.
If you need some more convincing, Squalane Oil brings hydration to your hair and nails, as well. Just add it to your shampoo or rub it right on your cuticles to get some of those hydrating benefits.
