No, it's not the squalene that comes from sharks, its squalane that comes from olives. Yup, it's vegan.
Squalane is a light-weight, non-greasy oil that absorbs rapidly into the skin without clogging the pores. It instantly hydrates the skin leaving it radiant, soft & nourished. Due to its lightweight nature, is perfect all skin types including sensitive and break-out prone or congested.
Squalane is a saturated and stable compound that is found naturally in the skin. The properties that make it attractive for skincare are that it is a great emollient that pulls moisture to the skin and is non-comedogenic.
Why we use it in our face and eye products is because, besides all these great qualities, it also promotes cell regeneration. It's non-irritating, helps regulate excess oil production, and protects the skin from free radicals that cause pigmentation and age spots.
