Squalane has justifiably captured the attention of skincare and cosmetic enthusiasts. If you’re wondering what it is and what it can do for your skin, we’ve got you covered!
What is Squalane?
Squalane is an emollient meaning that it excels at moisturizing and softening the skin by bolstering its natural protective barrier.
Where and how is it sourced?
At Three Ships, we formulate with plant-based Squalane derived from 100% renewable sugarcane that is a USDA Certified Biobased Product. This ingredient contributes to a circular economy as the biomass remains are used as fuel to sustain its own energy consumption. This meets a 60% reduction in greenhouse gasses compared to petrochemical processes.
Squalane offers a sustainable and effective option for skincare products.
What are the benefits of Squalane in skincare?
Squalane helps enhance your skin's lipid barrier and reduce water loss to prevent dry skin. Its emollient properties and chemical structure suggest it plays a supportive role in maintaining your skin's natural lipids.
It's important to note that although Squalane is an oil, it is non-comedogenic, meaning that it won't clog your pores. This makes it suitable for individuals with acne-prone skin who still seek the benefits of an oil-based moisturizer.
Studies have shown that Squalane has been observed to have a firming effect on the skin.
