Squalane 101: Benefits, Uses & Where To Find It

Is squalane a miracle worker for your skin?

Finding a great face oil is tough. Finding a great natural face oil is even tougher. Coconut oil is impressive but it hardly suits everyone. Jojoba oil might be a better fit for some but it’s not as stable or lightweight as the miraculous squalane. 

What is squalane?

Squalane comes from squalene, an oily substance our body naturally produces. Unfortunately, the amount of squalene we produce decreases as we age. As a result, our skin gets dry and aging signs increase. That’s why we seek out additional help from external moisturizers. Squalene is a superb moisturizer and when it goes through a process called hydrogenation it turns to squalane – a stable, fully saturated oil that has a longer shelf life and absorbs better into the skin. This lightweight but extremely effective oil works wonders – it hydrates deeply, mimics your skin’s natural oils and fights free radicals and aging signs.

Squalane oil benefits

Squalane oil is one of the most beloved and sought after ingredients in skincare. This comes as no surprise since it benefits all skin types. Face oils can be quite tricky for sensitive, acne-prone or oily skin. Since squalane is so lightweight and noncomedogenic – it won’t clog your pores, it’s actually suitable for everybody.

But there’s a lot more to squalane than meets the eye. It maintains skin’s moisture barrier and hydration. Moreover, it’s an antioxidant that has anti-aging properties, fights free radicals and neutralizes environmental damage. It penetrates pores and improves skin at the cellular level without feeling heavy on the skin. Like coconut oil, squalane is naturally antibacterial so it soothes the skin and speeds up the healing process. 

How to use it in your skincare routine

The first step to healthy skin is hydration. Using squalane oil as a moisturizer will help your skin appear vibrant and healthy. Another popular use of this fabolous oil is as a hair mask since it moisturizes so deeply. Get creative! Mix it into your foundation for extra hydration. Chapped lips? Use it as a lip treatment.

But in order to fully incorporate it into your daily routine, finding a good squalane face serum is a must. FOREO’s SERUM SERUM SERUM is the best of the best – a micro-capsule infused formula that secures maximum penetration of youth-preserving antioxidants. 

These micro-capsules make sure that all the skin-smoothing squalane in our formula sinks in deeper, works better and stays locked beneath your skin longer. Get the most out of your SERUM SERUM SERUM! Massage it into your skin whenever it feels dry or dull for a healthy, youthful glow. Combine it with your LUNA or IRIS for a firming massage with double the benefits. Or use it as a conductive gel for microcurrent treatments

In conclusion, squalane is an impressive addition to your skincare regime with the very best moisturizing, antioxidant and anti-aging properties for every skin type. Use it daily to nourish and protect your skin and watch it thrive!
