Squalene

Squalene is an oil that has historically been extracted from shark liver or plants (usually olives). It is a natural component of skin and a healthy emollient with antioxidant properties.

What are the benefits?

It is a fantastic moisturiser and lubricant, softening and smoothing the skin while also replenishing skin lipids. Its compatibility with skin lipids is due to the fact that human sebum contains 25% squalane.
