This oil is so versatile! While it can be used for so many things, I have 2 favorite ways to use it after a shower:
1. Rub 1 pump between my hands and disperse through the ends of my damp hair. This helps keep my frizz at bay, add some shine, and lock in moisture! I also gave some to a friend that is pregnant whose hair has become very dry and frizzy. She loves using it the same way- and loves how it transforms her hair!
2. PERFECT after shave nourishment!!! Once I towel dry, I slather this in my legs. They look healthy, stay hydrated, and irritation is gone.
Whatever’s left on my hands I rub into my cuticles.
I’ve also added this to my facial and body moisturizers, and enjoy the boost in hydration that way too!
I definitely recommend this product. Good for so many things!
(Note: I have fine hair, and oily skin)
I switched to this oil because my little boy kept breaking out from the baby lotion I was using. I put a few drops in his bath and use this as a moisturizer instead of using lotion on him. So far, so good- no redness or rash! I love that it is unscented and plant based!

What is Squalane Oil?
Squalane oil is a clear, odorless, tasteless, non-toxic and non-irritating oil that is naturally present on skin as a minor component of sebum (around 2-3%). Sebum is the oil-like substance produced by the skin’s sebaceous glands that makes hair look shiny and prevents skin from becoming dry and itchy. Sebum, along with water from environment and sweat, forms a surface barrier protecting the skin from excessive water loss and the detrimental effects of pollutants, sun, and ozone . Sebum is composed of triglycerides and free fatty acids (57.5%), wax esters (26%), and squalene (12%)  . We do not want to use extra squalene (with an “e”) to help moisturize our skin, because squalene easily oxidizes to peroxides that can induce comedogenesis (clogged pores) and inflammation . The chemical structure of squalane, on the other hand, is very stable and cannot be naturally oxidized. Squalane then is a brilliant natural face moisturizer and emollient to prevent water loss and maintain skin’s suppleness and flexibility.
How Squalane Oil Benefits for Your Face -
By acting as an emollient, squalane functions to soften dry, rough, flaky skin, making skin look healthier and feel better. When the top layer of skin doesn’t contain enough water, it dries out. Drying causes skin to crack and flake off, leaving open spaces between the cells in your skin. Emollients fill those spaces with fatty substances, like squalane, which make your skin look and feel smoother and softer and your hair look more shiny. Squalane also works as a natural face moisturizer keeping skin hydrated through the formation of a protective barrier to retain skins natural moisture and prevent it from drying out.
Is Squalane Oil Safe?
Squalane oil is nontoxic and non-irritating at levels up to and including 100% purity  . Squalane oil is ECOCERT certified and is listed in the EPA’s Safer Choice Chemical Ingredients list , ensuring that it is one of the best and safest face moisturizers and emollients to use on a daily basis.
Is all Squalane the Same?
Technically speaking yes, in that the chemical structures are the same, however, the source material used to manufacture squalane is highly variable which can result in unwanted impurities in the product and depletion of our natural resources used to source the squalane.
Our 100% plant-derived squalane face moisturizer is sourced from fermentable sugars in sugarcane, an agricultural crop that is totally biorenewable and sustainable. Production from sugarcane does not harm the environment or deplete natural resources like chemically synthesized squalane or squalane or derived from shark liver. The squalane produced from sugarcane is highly pure and does not contain environmental pollutants like those from shark liver oil.
Squalane oil derived from sugarcane then, passes our high internal quality and environmental sustainability standards that you come to expect from skincare products of exceptional quality. No animals were used in the manufacture and/or testing of our products.
