Olive Squalane is a plant-based form of the compound Squalane, which is derived from olives. It's a lightweight, clear, tasteless, and odorless liquid that is similar to the Squalene found in human sebum, a natural oil produced by the body.

Olive Squalane is used in a variety of personal care products, including facial creams and serums, hair conditioners and oils, lip moisturizers, and sunscreens. It's also used in products to treat inflammatory conditions like eczema.

But why is Olive Squalane so popular and why should you consider using it in your skincare routine? Here are some of the benefits:
