Product FAQ

Is squalane and squalene the same thing?

The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser, as the name suggests, features squalane, not squalene. Squalene is the precursor to squalane - both are produced by the body, but squalane is the smaller molecule of the two. Squalene gets turned into squalane by the body, and is derived from olive oil.

Squalane is similar to what our body produces naturally, and so helps to balance the skin and protect the skin barrier. It doesn’t irritate the skin, and also has a softening, anti-ageing effect by enhancing the skin’s elasticity.

Best of the Best!

This product is honestly such a win and a great bargain! I started using it over 6 months ago together with other The Ordinary products and all I can say is that my skin has never looked and felt so good. I have quiet sensitive and dry skin and this really leaves it feeling super hydrated, it also does a really great job of removing make up.

Personal use

Love this product. I use a “harsher” face wash at night so this one is great for my morning cleanse. It’s milky and gentle but very effective. I don’t feel stripped or dry after use. Definitely recommend
