Squalane

Squalane — originally obtained from shark livers, the fish-friendly alternative is squalane made from olives. Highly refined squalane is a true antioxidant, prevents sun UV damage and age spots from forming, promotes cell growth and is also an antibacterial. An excellent moisturizer and lubricant, it softens and smoothes the skin while also replenishing skin lipids. Its compatibility with skin lipids can be attributed to the fact that human sebum is made up of 25% squalane.
