What is it doing: It is derived from the emollient ingredient squalene, which is a natural component of your skin’s sebum (oil). It is a wonderfully moisturizing ingredient as well as being a source of  replenishing fatty acids and antioxidants in the skin. Note that because it’s highly saturated, squalane is more stable in the presence of air than less-saturated squalene and a better choice for acne-prone skin.

Found in: NIGHT CREAM, BLUE SERUM, WHITE SERUM, DAY CREAM (TEMPERATE, MARINE, TROPICAL, DESERT, POLAR, MOUNTAIN CLIMATES), MOISTURE-BURST MASK (MARINE, MOUNTAIN, TEMPERATE CLIMATES), ANTI-AGING BODY CREAM
