Squalane is on-trend and the latest buzzword ingredient in skincare and there’s nothing about skincare that our VOYA experts don’t know. Which is why we're breaking down the benefits of Squalane and highlighting the VOYA products that are rich in this key ingredient.
WHAT IS SQUALANE?
Squalane is a hydrogenated version of Squalene which is a natural compound that is produced in the human body. Converted into this state its more stable, effective, skin-friendly, and our favourite thing about it is that it’s a super antioxidant!
When Squalene is combined with the 5 super antioxidants already found in VOYA’s seaweed it really packs a powerful protective punch for your skin!
Antioxidants in seaweed:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin B5
Squalene is naturally produced by the sebaceous glands, babies have the highest content of Squalene in their blood but unfortunately like many things, after the age of 30, your stock levels significantly plummet.
Squalane is a brilliant hydrator and prevents the continual loss of hydration that impairs dermal suppleness. It’s essential for healthy skin and helps combat inflammation and is protective against external free radicals! It has humectant properties that increase the water retention capacity of the skin and is a natural lubricant and protective skin barrier.
The only question left is where is it sourced from? And as you probably know by now, VOYA only uses ingredients from ethically based sources- Our Squalane is derived only from sustainably picked olives.
