Squalane Oil

$32.00

 

REGULATE  –  MOISTURISE  –  HYDRATE

Found naturally in the skin, squalene protects and hydrates by locking in moisture, making it the perfect treatment oil for strengthening the skin’s barrier and hydrating the lipid layers.

An easily-absorbable and lightweight plant-based oil, it is particularly good for sensitive, combination, and oily skin types. It helps regulate sebum production in the skin so it won’t clog pores, and the antibacterial nature of the oil makes it great for blemish-prone skin.

Daily Ritual: At sunrise and sunset, apply 3-5 drops onto your fingertips and gently press into your face, neck, and décolleté.

Skin Concerns: Sensitive, dehydrated, combination, oily, acne, blemish-prone skin

100% Cold-Pressed Oil   30mL  1.0 fl oz

A superhero oil for skin that’s out of balance; a go-to solution for dry, confused, mature, or blemish-prone skin.
 

An essential oil for all skin types, Squalane is a firm favourite in my clinic because of its real affinity with the skin. It’s a naturally-occurring component of the skin’s lipid barrier – the building blocks that make up our skin. The squalene inside our lipid barrier protects us against environmental stressors and also acts as a quencher of singlet oxygen; protecting the barrier function from lipid peroxidation, which can occur due to environmental damage.

A natural component of sebum, it regulates oil production on the skin’s surface, making it the perfect balancing oil. The amount of squalane your skin produces declines with age, leaving it rough, dry, and vulnerable. Fortunately, because our skin naturally produces squalene, it instantly recognises it when applied topically. This replenishes the lipid barrier, softening and freeing tissue; it’s like a lock and key: it fits perfectly.

Considered a great multi-tasking oil – it’s lightweight, non-greasy, non-comedogenic, antibacterial, and safe for sensitive skin – it can be used to address a catalogue of complexion complaints without irritation. Such conditions include dryness, seborrheic dermatitis, eczema, acne, inflammation, and excess sebum.

I was also keen to harness the abundant, natural form of Vitamin E within this oil. A powerful, oil-soluble antioxidant, its role is two-fold on the skin: it neutralises free radicals; moisturising the skin and visibly improving the appearance of premature ageing, whilst preserving the skin’s oil, giving it longevity.

Skin Health Benefits

  • A protective oil, it helps restore the skin’s natural barrier function
  • Boosts skin’s natural lipid and moisture production for smooth, supple skin
  • Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant, protecting the skin from environmental pollutants
  • Ideal for combination or oily skin; as it’s almost identical to your complexion’s natural sebum, it won’t cause congestion or clog pores
