Extracted from olive oil, NUORI’s squalane is 100% plant derived. The ingredient closely resembles sebum, the protective oil created by the body itself. Therefore, when applied topically, squalane delivers superb barrier protection, preventing moisture loss and providing a shield from environmental damage without a weighty after-feel. The ingredient's humectant properties also aid the penetration and retention of other beneficial ingredients. With the addition of anti-bacterial benefits, squalane leaves the skin with a softer texture and a smoother appearance.
