Can be used for hydration, or as a massage oil.
Squalene is an organic compound (a colorless oil) that is produced by the glands in our skin, and acts as a barrier in the moisture loss that other water content ingredients (like hyaluronic acid) offer. As it is similar to the skin's own oil, it is highly regarded in the cosmetic industry for its moisturizing and restorative properties, that increase the absorption of creams and lotions while making them easily spreadable, and has been proven to prevent moisture loss, diminish the appearance of fine lines, and help in the prevention of wrinkles. These qualities made it an ingredient with high demand, especially for high-end facial cosmetics, a demand that lead to the hunt of sharks, as squalene is found in large quantities in shark liver.
