Pure squalane oil is suitable for all skin types, including oily, dry, combination, normal, sensitive, mature and even acne-prone. Using a squalane face oil just may have you looking a little more youthful. Since our own squalene production decreases as we age, using squalane oil on our skin can help to add back moisture. Drier skin is more wrinkle-prone, so using squalane oil can help to moisturize the skin and ward off fine lines . It may also help current signs of aging be less noticeable. Does squalane oil cause breakouts? No, in fact, it may help them, which is why some experts even recommend squalane oil for acne. As pointed out in one scientific review, “An added quality of squalane is that even though it is technically oil, it is less greasy, odorless, non-comedogenic, antibacterial and safe for sensitive skin. Moreover, it is also effective for treating skin disorders such as contact, seborrheic or atopic dermatitis.”
