What is it?
Squalane is a moisturizing oil that is naturally found in both plants and animals, with the most common sources being olive oil and shark liver oil. Human sebum (skin oil) also naturally contains squalane.
What does it do?
This ingredient is used as a moisturizer in many cosmetic and skin care products, including Intellishade Matte. Squalane mimics the skin’s natural oils by absorbing quickly, preventing moisture loss, and protecting the skin’s natural barrier. Studies indicate that this moisturizing oil may also have anti-bacterial properties.
It works best for:
*Dry Skin – an effective moisturizer
*Acne – moisturizes without oily feeling, possible anti-bacterial properties
*Aging skin – hydration benefits reduce appearance of fine lines & dryness
