Squalane for Skin

Squalane is naturally present in both botanical oils and in the sebum in our skin and accounts for about 10% of our sebum composition.  Squalane is used as a moisturizer and conditioner. Squalane protects our skin from lipid peroxidation. Squalane is intended to replace the squalane our body loses that causes our skin to become dry cracked and irritated.

Originally, commercially available forms of squalane were derived from shark liver. At Kaneya, we formulate with plant-derived Squalane - olive. This has excellent conditioning and hydrating benefits. 

Benefits of Squalane for skin

Squalane is a natural hydrator that helps skin stay hydrated throughout the day. It is able to penetrate deep beneath the skin’s surface, allowing it to lock in moisture and prevent dryness and flaky skin. Squalane also helps boost collagen production by increasing water content in the upper layers of your skin.

2. Anti-ageing
Squalane can help reduce wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of ageing due to its antioxidant properties which combat damage caused by free radicals. It also promotes cell regeneration, allowing damaged cells to be replaced with new cells quickly while giving skin a younger and firmer appearance.

3. Moisture retention
Squalane helps protect the outer layer of your skin from environmental damage caused by dehydration, windburn and sunburn as it acts as a protective barrier that locks in moisture. This is especially beneficial for those who live in areas with extreme temperature fluctuations or harsh weather conditions such as snowfall or rain showers during wintertime.

4. Acne & Scar Reduction
Many people have seen improvements on their acne when using products containing squalane because due its anti-inflammatory properties which help soothe redness and inflammation associated with acne breakouts and reduce severity of scars left behind after blemishes clear up.

5 Repairs damaged tissue
The antioxidant compounds found in squalane are known to help repair tissue damage caused by exposure to sunlight, smoke and pollution which can cause discoloration, age spots on face and body plus breakouts if left untreated.. Additionally, this oil will not clog pores like other acne treatment ingredients because it’s non comedogenic meaning it won’t block them but instead will keep them clean and clear of impurities helping you maintain blemish free complexion all year round!

6 Brightening effects
Squalane is also rich in Vitamin C which can help brighten dull complexions by increasing circulation around capillaries just beneath the surface level resulting in rosier cheeks that last all day long! Additionally regular use will result in softer smoother texture thanks to its ability nourish dehydrated cells from inside out facilitating an even tone across facial features without stripping any nourishment away+.

7 Non Greasy Feel
Unlike many other oils used for skincare purposes, squalane has a lightweight texture that absorbs quickly into the top layer of your skin without leaving behind any greasy residue afterwards making it ideal choice for those who dislike feeling sticky after application!
