The Ordinary - 100% Plant Derived Squalane
The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane is 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.

It can also be applied to hair to increase heat protection, add shine and reduce breakage potential.
