The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane: A Lightweight Plant-Derived Solution to Support Healthy Hydration
Squalane is a saturated and stable hydrocarbon that is found naturally in the skin. It has very high emollience, is an exceptional hydrator and can prevent ongoing loss of hydration that impairs dermal suppleness. Squalane is non-comedogenic and is suitable for use on all skin types. It can also be applied to hair to increase heat protection, add shine and reduce breakage potential.
Note: This product uses 100% pure plant-derived Squalane that is ECOCERT approved and is a USDA Certified Bio-based Product.
Review(s) on The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane:
"This is the best moisturizer I have ever used. After only one use my skin felt 100 times better. After using it morning and night for a week now, my skin has never been this soft. I have extremely sensitive skin and this does not irritate it at all. I use two drops in the morning and three drops at night so this will last me a long time. I put it in my hair after forgetting my shampoo and conditioner while out of town this weekend, I could already tell my hair was going to be a nightmare after using the provided products at my hotel. I put this in while my hair was wet before blow drying and then again after blow drying and my hair was so soft. I also forgot lip balm and this also helped a lot on my lips. My boyfriend's dry hands and eczema have calmed down after only one application as well. Just buy it." - RW (from theordinary.com)
Apply a few drops daily or as needed to entire face ideally after water-based treatments.

So I bought this to help my fungal acne but because our place is hella far, it arrived when my fungal acne was done and over with. But I still used it and omg my face had never been this smooth EVER!!! i've been using cetaphil before this and my face was never this smooth. But yeah this helped my skin feel smoother and lessen the acne. It's also not greasy and heavy on the face so
I recently found out that I had mallasezia and the skincare products I’d been using contained triggers. I researched and discovered that Squalane does wonders to your skin! This did not disappoint. I usually break out or have an allergic reaction when I try new products but I noticed such a HUGE difference after a few days of using this!!! I use it day and night as a moisturizer. I’m so happy I purchased this. :)
My moisture barrier was destroyed. This was the product that helped me bring it back to normal. However, I wouldnt use to much since it can cause closed comedones. It’s most likely cause I have oily skin.
