The Ordinary Squalane Oil is a popular skincare product known for its hydrating and moisturizing properties. Squalane oil is derived from squalene, a natural compound found in the skin’s lipid barrier. The Ordinary formulates its squalane oil to provide intense hydration without clogging pores or leaving a greasy residue. Here’s everything you need to know about The Ordinary Squalane Oil:
What is Squalane Oil?
Squalane oil is a lightweight, non-comedogenic oil that closely resembles the skin’s natural sebum. It is highly moisturizing and absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling. Squalane oil is suitable for all skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin, as it helps to regulate oil production and balance moisture levels.
Benefits of The Ordinary Squalane Oil:
Intense Hydration: Squalane oil deeply moisturizes the skin, helping to restore and maintain its natural moisture barrier. It leaves the skin feeling soft, smooth, and supple.
Non-Comedogenic: The Ordinary Squalane Oil is non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog pores or cause breakouts. It is safe to use on acne-prone skin without exacerbating blemishes.
Lightweight Texture: Unlike heavier oils, squalane oil has a light texture that absorbs quickly into the skin. It feels comfortable and breathable, making it suitable for daily use.
Versatile: Squalane oil can be used on the face, body, and hair to hydrate and nourish. It can be applied alone as a moisturizer or mixed with other skincare products for added hydration.
Soothing and Calming: Squalane oil has soothing and calming properties that help to reduce redness and irritation. It is suitable for sensitive skin and can help to alleviate symptoms of inflammation.

Cleanse: Start with clean, dry skin. Wash your face with a gentle cleanser and pat dry with a towel.
