Why You Need Squalane In Your Skincare Routine After 40

Hey Beautiful!

Using Squalane Oil in skincare products after the age of 40 can offer several benefits. Squalane is a lightweight and non-comedogenic oil that acts like a natural component of human sebum. We believe these benefits hold the key to achieving your mature skin goals for healthy, radiant skin!

Here are 6 surprising advantages of using Squalane Oil in your skincare routine:

  1. Intense Moisturization: As we age, our skin tends to become drier and loses moisture more easily. Squalane oil is an excellent emollient that can deeply hydrate the skin and prevent moisture loss. Its molecular structure is similar to the skin's own lipids, allowing it to penetrate deeply and provide long-lasting hydration. Regular use of squalane oil can help restore and maintain optimal moisture levels, improving the overall texture and suppleness of the skin.
  2. Skin Barrier Protection: With age, the skin's natural protective barrier weakens, making it more vulnerable to environmental stressors, pollutants, and moisture loss. Squalane oil reinforces the skin's barrier function by preventing water loss and shielding it from external aggressors. It forms a protective layer on the skin's surface, helping to lock in moisture and enhance its resilience.
  3. Anti-Aging Effects: Squalane oil possesses antioxidant properties, which can help neutralize free radicals and protect the skin from oxidative stress. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage collagen and elastin, leading to premature aging signs such as wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. By counteracting these harmful effects, squalane oil can support the skin's natural repair mechanisms and promote a more youthful appearance.
  4. Enhanced Skin Elasticity: As we age, the skin's elasticity diminishes, resulting in sagging and loss of firmness. Squalane oil has been shown to improve skin elasticity by promoting the synthesis of collagen and elastin fibers. Regular use can help restore the skin's natural bounce and resilience, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  5. Non-Irritating and Gentle: Squalane oil is known for its excellent compatibility with all skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone skin. It is non-comedogenic, meaning it does not clog pores or contribute to breakouts. Its lightweight texture allows for quick absorption without leaving a greasy residue. Squalane oil is also suitable for those with skin conditions like eczema or rosacea, as it can help soothe and calm irritated skin.
  6. Versatility: Squalane oil is a versatile ingredient that can be easily incorporated into your skincare routine. It can be used as a standalone facial oil, added to moisturizers, serums, masks, or even used as a makeup primer (if you forget your makeup!) to create a smooth canvas for application. Its compatibility with other skincare ingredients makes it a valuable addition to any skincare regimen.

For these reasons, we've carefully selected Squalane to be our superstar player inside of our Glow Oil. What a lot of people don't know is that it's actually OLIVE derived, which is another reason we know its an outstanding choice for your mature skin. 

We recommend using our Glow Oil over your Whipped Olive Oil Face Butter and/or Advanced Retinol Night Repair Creme to increase your hydration for more radiant skin! 

Remember, the more you know the more you glow (literally).

With love,
