The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane
Description & Features
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 Dc56 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 Helen from Squalane smoother I have never used any product more effective for my dry aging skin (76). After applying my (3 or 4) Ordinary serums, my face is a bit sticky and a small amount of squalane smoothed over not only eliminates the sticky feeling but totally relieves any dry look or feel. I only use the oils at night as my face is so comfortable and soft all day. I still use squalane before applying them and the oils seem to sink in better and don't smudge on my silk pillowcase! Love this and all Ordinary products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lauren from Lightweight and awesome! I’ve been buying this from Well.ca for about a year now. I love how it absorbs into my skin- I never experienced oil actually absorbing into my skin prior to trying this product! I thought my skin just didn’t like oils but didn’t realize I needed to look for a better oil. It’s lightweight, blends beautifully on the skin and doesn’t leave my skin feeling heavy or greasy. I wish they made this in a bigger bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amboyer from Love This!! This stuff feels amazing on my skin. This winter has been insanely dry and my eczema-prone skin has been flaking right off and been uncomfortably itchy. Every unscented moisturizer I have tried makes my skin burn. This product instantly soothed my skin and it feels like satin. Doesn’t feel oily. I use it under my moisturizer and my skin has improved by leaps and bounds.

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 Nikki A from Greatest Moisturizer Now that I've introduced this into my skin care routine it's a total staple. Amazing amount of moisturization. I have extremely sensitive skin and I didn't have any negative reactions. The only downside I found was that if I'm in a hurry I can't just it as my morning moisturizer because it doesn't absorb quickly.
