The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane



The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane is a lightweight solution to help support healthy hydration. Squalane is a saturated and stable hydrocarbon that is found naturally in the skin. It has very high emollience, is an exceptional hydrator and can help to prevent ongoing loss of hydration that impairs dermal suppleness. Squalane is non-comedogenic and is suitable for use on all skin types. It can also be applied to hair to increase heat protection, add shine and reduce breakage potential.

Note: This product uses 100% pure plant-derived Squalane that is ECOCERT approved and is a USDA Certified Bio-based Product.

Directions: Apply a few drops daily or as needed to entire face, ideally after water-based treatments.

Ingredients: Squalane.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great oil! I've tried many different oils, from argan to chia seed to rose hip - from a variety of brands and at a variety of pricepoints. Most of them I am not able to use on my forehead because they break me out...not so for this! It is the first oil I've been able to use on my forehead. It's a dryer oil than others, meaning it has less slip and really sinks into the face quickly, which I love. I haven't had it long enough to see improvement, but I'm hoping this helps to clear up the flakes on my nose that were created by my over-enthusiastic usage of the Ordinary's 5% lactic acid. Would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This is a beautiful oil. It’s €a lightweight oil that absorbs easily. When I first tried it, I had tried a few other oils like merula and jojoba and many balms as my 60+ skin was recovering from both a damaged skin barrier and perioral dermatitis. This oil caused no reaction as the others did but still added that “just enough” to my skin. I use it as the last layer after using a few of The Ordinary serums, just before the final cream layer. I have reordered many times now - I won’t be without this lovely quality oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done This product was recommended to me by my Natropath as an alternative to the oils I was putting in my hair and on my face. Just a little Squalene hydrates my face (3 drops) and hair (little more) after washing. My children also use it. We love that it's light and non greasy, leaving our faces feeling fresh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from People ask me about my skin care products... I add neroli essential oil to this plant-derived squalene and use it as moisturizer. I am in my mid 50's and people ask me all they time what kind of products I use on my skin! Great for wrinkles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Squalane! I love this oil for my oily skin. It sinks right into my skin and leaves my skin very well hydrated. I only use it at night after all my other products to seal in the richness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for keeping skin moisturized My skin is fairly dry especially in the winter, and this in combination with some other ordinary products really is a game changer and I don’t have dry tight skin anymore
