When creating powerhouse skincare products that are also clean, we couldn’t forget about one of our favorite ingredients: squalane. The key to glowing skin is moisture, and squalane is a superstar when it comes to moisturizers.
What is Squalane?
Not to be confused with squalene, squalane is a moisturizing, organic compound with antioxidant properties derived from olives. Because it mimics your skin’s natural oils, it is a highly effective moisturizer regardless of your skin type. It is a lightweight ingredient that isn’t greasy but hydrating.
When it comes to healthy skin, squalane is an all-star ingredient. It can improve the smoothness and suppleness of your skin, keeping it looking youthful and hydrated. Since squalane is so similar to your own skin’s oil, it provides just the right amount of moisture to your skin. As an antioxidant, squalane minimizes the look of fine lines and wrinkles. This also improves the look of your skin’s texture and can alleviate irritations. Thanks to those antioxidant properties, squalane also strengthens your skin’s natural barrier, blocking environmental stressors and pollutants that can age and harm your skin.
How We Use Squalane
Squalane is one of the ingredients we use in our Skin Tonic, a luxury body oil developed for the purpose of rejuvenating skin and providing a healthy glow to your face and body. You can use Ambre Blends Skin Tonic on your face and body, patting it onto your skin after a bath or shower allowing your skin to absorb the product naturally and soak up all the benefits.
