Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil

Squalane Facial Oil

This all-natural, lightweight oil works hard to help your skin repair and regenerate, whilst keeping it content and comfortably hydrated. With just one single ingredient - 100% olive-derived squalane oil - this is perfect for all those who're 'phobic' about facial oils. It's readily absorbed and almost identical to your complexion's natural sebum, so won't cause congestion or prompt a reaction. It's completely non-comedogenic and non-greasy, and works hard to boost elasticity, reduce hyper-pigmentation and leave skin feeling soft and looking luminous.

It seems to us that squalane is in fashion and there is a reason for it. Chemically speaking, it is a saturated  (no double bonds) hydrocarbon (a molecule consisting only of carbon and hydrogen), meaning that it's a nice and stable oily liquid with a long shelf life. 

It occurs naturally in certain fish and plant oils (e.g. olive), and in the sebum (the oily stuff our skin produces) of the human skin. As f.c. puts it in his awesome blog post, squalane's main things are "emolliency, surface occlusion, and TEWL prevention all with extreme cosmetic elegance". In other words, it's a superb moisturizer that makes your skin nice and smooth, without being heavy or greasy.
