The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane

$13.90

DESCRIPTION

A lightweight plant-derived solution to support healthy hydration

Why We Love It

Squalane mimics the skin's natural sebum (oil) and is a great moisturising ingredient for even the most sensitive or acne prone skin. It's technically not an oil but a hydrocarbon - making it fungal acne friendly. 


 

Squalane is a saturated and stable hydrocarbon that is found naturally in the skin. It has very high emollience, is an exceptional hydrator and can prevent ongoing loss of hydration that impairs dermal suppleness. Squalane is non-comedogenic and is suitable for use on all skin types. It can also be applied to hair to increase heat protection, add shine and reduce breakage potential.

Note: This product uses 100% pure plant-derived Squalane that is ECOCERT approved and is a USDA Certified Bio-based Product.

Apply once or twice daily to the face, ideally at bedtime after cleansing and application of water-based treatments.

Apply 2-3 drops to face and massage until absorbed.
