What Is Squalane?

You may or may not have heard of squalane, but your skin has. The human body produces its own version (known as squalene), but the amount made and retained in the skin decreases over time. It peaks in our teens and then starts to decline in our 20’s, leaving skin rough, dry and vulnerable.

Where Is Squalane Found?

Squalane comes from squalene, which can be confusing if you don’t know the difference. Squalene is part of our skin’s own natural moisture. It is also found in a variety of plants and in shark liver. No matter where it comes from, squalene is extremely unstable. When squalene is hydrogenated it converts to skin-friendlier and safer squalane.
Obviously, harvesting squalane from shark livers isn’t something we’re interested in. It isn’t just bad for the shark, but has an overall devastating environmental impact. Another widely used source is from olives. The quality of squalane produced depends on weather and crop growth, and can be unreliable. Both are still major sources of squalane on the market today.
