Squalane, The Must Have Beauty Ingredient For 2018

Squalane Helen Turner

Yes, it seems far to early to be thinking about 2018 and the trends that we are going to be seeing a lot more of. However as the Christmas lights have gone up already in Amsterdam, I'm constantly reminded we are in the last quarter of the year. So, have you heard of squalane? And do you know much about it? Well let me explain...


About The Cosmetic Ingredient Squalane

Squalane is an oil that is identical to a particular type of fat that occurs naturally in our skin but is depleted as we get older. Squalane is extracted from plants and other organisms. The majority of the squalane used in cosmetics is derived from either sharks or olives. The squalane found in Squalan products is 100% derived from Ecocert-approved sugar cane. Squalane gives your skin back what it originally contained, restoring its natural balance. Dry skin becomes less dry, oily skin less oily, and beautiful skin becomes even more attractive.

'Squalan' The Brand

What started out as a quest for a skincare product that doesn’t irritate the skin, grew into a company. Monique and Leslie started Squalan from scratch and turned it into a successful business. Soon after they fell in love with the Squalan oil, their friends and the rest of the Netherlands fell in love with the product as well. I've been trying the products for about a month and really love the Eye Serum (I actually use it as a general face oil) it's also great to carry around with you in your bag or on your travels. The Eye Serum tightens and re-contours the skin around the eyes, softens fine lines and removes puffiness under the eyes. The serum consists of a special combination of extraordinary oils with properties that are suitable for the delicate skin around the eyes.

Eye Serum Ingredients:

  • Squalane, Avena sativa kernel extract, Moringa oleifera seed oil,Rosa rubiginosa seed oil.

Their other products are: Cleanser, Pure and Moisturizer . The products work very well for those people with very sensitive skin who find that most skin care products irritate their skin or cause inflammation. Check out the Squalan website HERE or their Instagram account: @squalan
