Squalane

Squalane

Youth-Derm® Aloe Cream Ingredients

Squalane is very similar to the natural oils our body creates. This makes squalane perfectly matched for our skin to completely absorb and replenish it’s normal balance. It leaves our skin with a radiant and fresh glow. It helps to soothe irritated and dry skin.

“Up to date, anticancer, antioxidant, drug carrier, detoxifier, skin hydrating, and emollient activities of these substances have been reported both in animal models and in vitro environments. According to promising results from recent studies, squalene and squalane are considered important substances in practical and clinical uses with a huge potential in nutraceutical and pharmaceutical industries.” (1)

Squalane was and still can be acquired and produced from the livers of deep sea sharks. We have chosen at Stockton Aloe1 – NOT to use this shark squalane, but to source a beautiful, silky 100% olive-derived squalane guaranteed by C13/C12 quantification.

Squalane (with an “A”) is a saturated derivative of Squalene (with an “E”) that is more suitable for use in cosmetic products. Squalene can oxidize very easily – so the stable form of Squalane is used. It has been touted to permeate the skin at a rate of 2 mm/second.

Human sebum also contains 13% squalene as one of its major constituents (1), but as we age it’s production slows down and more is required for skin replenishment. It helps to soften wrinkles which aids the flawless application and appearance of make-up.

Dry, cracked skin can benefit from the use of our Youth-Derm® Aloe Cream. Squalane has been shown to help condition and prevent cracks that could lead to pain and greater germ penetration. It has also been shown to provide antimicrobial activity when properly concentrated in the skin.

Squalane is one of the main components in our Youth-Derm® Aloe Cream to aid  it’s impeccable health benefits for the skin.
