Squalane_Henry-Lamotte-Oils

Squalane

Squalene naturally occurs in the unsaponifiable matter in Olive Oil and some other vegetable oils, as well as in the skin’s lipid barrier and in blood serum.  It is also available from maritime sources. Production and distribution are strictly separated. Squalene is further processed to produce Squalane. Squalane is a clear, odourless and colourless liquid, which is produced from hydrogenation of the natural substance Squalene. Squalene is sensitive to oxidation due to its double compounds, but becomes resistant to oxidation and heat when it is hydrogenated.
