Meet your skin’s new hydration hero. Squalane is a super emollient that in recent years, has worked its way up to the CEO of skincare ingredients. “It’s the ultimate overachiever. It prevents moisture loss and protects skin at the same time,” says Kimberly Cosentino, Origins PD. Squalane has long been a valuable emollient ingredient in many skincare formulas, including our fan favorite Ginger Souffle™ Whipped Body Cream, but it’s now playing a larger role as one of the most effective skin “moisture-keepers”. Get the scoop on this moisturizing master and discover why we made it one of the C-Suite ingredients in our new Checks And Balances™ Milky Oil Cleanser + Makeup Melter.
