The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Hemi-Squalane

A fast-absorbing, non-greasy hydrations solution for skin and hair. Hemi-Squalane is a non-polar hydrocarbon that is produced from the fermentation of sugar-based feedstock. Squalane and Hemi-Squalane are both excellent non-comedogenic emollients that can help to reduce the ongoing loss of hydration that weakens dermal elasticity and suppleness. However, due to its low molecular weight, Hemi-Squalane has greater spreadability and leaves a light and dry after-feel, making it very suitable for reducing hair frizz.

Directions: Hair Application—Work through damp, clean hair daily or as needed.
Skin Application—Apply a few drops to the entire face once daily or as needed.

Ingredients: C13-16 Isoparaffin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Soft Hair Staple I love decanting this oil into a spray bottle and spray it directly onto my towel dried hair after a shower. I comb it through with my fingers and my hair becomes so soft! I use this instead of the full molecular weight Squalane as the Hemi is much lighter and non-greasy. I also rub a tiny bit onto my lips and they are instantly revived. Love this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AH-FREAKING-MAZING So if I don’t put this in my hair after showering, it feels like straw. When I put this in (and you can’t put too much in) people comment on how soft and healthy my hair feels - even my hairdresser. Guys try it, it’s $4. I can’t go without it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile moisture boost for skin and hair This product is so versatile. It is great for reviving dry ends of your hair or for putting on top of your moisturizer to lock in hydration. Great under Makeup, or for mixing into foundation to make it look more skin-like

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a boost hydration I’ve used this a few times now over water-based moisturizers as directed and it really seems to help seal in the moisture. My super sensitive dry skin has had nothing but a positive reaction to this product. It’s very runny (it’s an oil) and a little goes a long way. I love that it’s multi-use for skin and hair and that there’s zero scent. I’m a The Ordinary devotee now after trying their products - the price is incredible and they work incredibly well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this after applying The Ordinary Hyluronic Acid. My face stays moisturized all day. Love all The Ordinary products that I've tried so far. You can count on them to be effective without using a lot of unnecessary additives.
