Squalane is a hydrogenated version of squalene, a compound produced by the sebaceous glands. It creates a barrier that helps moisturize the skin and keeps the skin surface intact. Squalane applied to the skin doesn’t feel greasy and acts like an emollient. It squeezes into the spaces between skin cells to make it feel smooth and silky and giving it anti-aging properties. Entrada®-SQ is a plant derived squalane substitute that provides the same benefits in a more economical form.
Entrada®-SQ can be used in bath oils, hair products, eye makeup, foundations, lipstick, suntan and sunscreen products, baby powder and nail products.
