Squalane is a key emollient ingredient that boosts moisture in the skin, nourishes, hydrates, calms and reinforces the skin barrier, making it a must in skincare products. Pevonia® sources squalane from olive oil, which is much more stable than sources like shark liver oil. Also, it is bioidentical to the oil within the body and mimics oil from human beings. This compatibility allows it to be readily received into the skin, and to penetrate deeply, unlike mineral oil and other synthetic emollients.
Squalane is also a natural source of Vitamins A and E, which are essential for healthy skin. These antioxidants fight free radicals, which damage skin and contribute to aging. Vitamin A also regulates DNA, reduces excess pigmentation, and increases collagen and elastin formation, which supports and hydrates the skin, as well as gives it the ability to snap back. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant essential for nourishing and protecting the skin as well as prevention of water loss. Squalane also contains Vitamin K, which promotes healthy circulation and capillaries, diminishes undereye circles, plus helps maintain elasticity.
When squalane is used in a moisturizer, and applied after a serum it will seal in the serum and effectively moisturize the skin as well. Squalane is also believed by some to have bactericidal properties.
