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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KatieB 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 Jackie 6 from Very impressed. Been using for about a month. This even got rid of a little dry patch on my cheek that would keep reappearing. Very impressed. Sinks in very well . Non greasy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Darcher 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 CassinBC from LOVE this oil for my night time routine! I use this after cleansing and patting dry, followed by the Moisture Factors and it makes my skin SO soft and supple. It's fantastic and so easy to use, my mature/acne prone/sensitive skin has not reacted at all to this/these products, and I am overjoyed that a friend recommended them. Easy to use, simple directions, unscented/dye free...perfect for my needs, 100%!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rachel from Favourite face moisturizer I love this squalene! It is so moisturizing. It doesn't take long to soak in and it doesn't leave your skin greasy. I find that when I use this, I break out way less. Do your research before buying though- it won't work for everyone (since squalene is naturally occurring in your skin, if your skin produces too much, this might not work as well for you).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michele 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 Vegangirl from My second or 3rd bottle I tried rosehip oil first, and it was lovely in the winter but too heavy in the summer and started to break me out. I switched to this one and it has NEVER made me break out. Scentless, light. I use it as moisturizer all year round, though I'm trying out argan oil for winter 2021.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eli from Love it Very moisturizing. This is an oil so use sparingly under makeup. I use 2 drops, rub between my palms then pat all over my face. Give it a few minutes to absorb then apply makeup, it provides a nice glow! I also use it on my hands if they're feeling dry, so happy with it!
