What it is: Squalane is an antioxidant, is frequently used in cosmetics and we often call it out as a good moisturizer. Squalane is basically a more stable version of squalene and, therefore, it is squalane that usually shows up in skincare and beauty products.

Benefits: Prevents UV damage and the formation of age spots, promotes cell growth and is an antibacterial. Highly refined squalane from olive demonstrates the most notable squalane characteristic–its ability to completely and rapidly penetrate the skin.

Best for: Dry, very dry or dehydrated skin type.
