What is squalane oil?
It’s impossible to talk about squalane without first discussing squalene. “Squalene is a part of the normal secretion of oil glands,” says Michele Farber, MD, a dermatologist at Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City. It’s one of the most common lipids produced by and throughout the body, though the bulk of it exists within skin — in fact, it accounts for 13% of your skin’s sebum content. There, it keeps skin moisturized and fortifies the skin barrier, serving as the mortar to fill in between the skin cells (the bricks, in this particular analogy). Not only that, but squalene also double as an antioxidant, repairing and defending skin against the cellular damage and collagen loss that results from oxidation.
Unfortunately, though maybe not surprising, the production of squalene takes a nosedive once you hit your 30s, leading to dry skin and greater potential for irritation. That’s where squalane oil comes in. “Squalane is a hydrogenated compound of squalene,” says Farber. “This makes it stable for longer periods in skin products.”
This product should last up to 3 months. Just as often as you replace your mascara 😉
