Squalane + Enzyme Sugar Body Scrub

1. Squalane + Enzyme Sugar Body Scrub

We’re thrilled that our new sugar body scrub was an Allure Best in Beauty award-winner in 2022. Not only were editors impressed with the way our body scrub smooths and hydrates skin, they were also thrilled with our eco-friendly, customizable formula which utilizes both chemical and physical exfoliation to soften and smooth skin..

“I love the formula, which isn't too sticky and does come off when wet (unlike other formulations that come off on your towel). It's made of pomegranate enzyme, a hydrating sugarcane-based squalane, and sugar crystals. It's not harsh, and it makes my skin feel really soft. Plus, it's pink, which is very important." — Alaina Demopoulos, Allure beauty editor

Glamour Magazine honored our Squalane + Amino Aloe Gentle Cleanser in their 2022 Sustainable Beauty Awards. We formulated this powerful cleanser to remove every trace of dirt, makeup, and excess sebum without over stripping. The secret sauce: our highly effective blend of cleansing amino acids with soothing aloe and our superhero hydrator, sugarcane-derived squalane.

“This cleanser is my new go-to! Biossance’s formula feels gentle and super lightweight, and best of all, doesn’t dry out my face the way other cleansers have. It also contains squalane from plant-derived ingredients, which makes my skin feel chef’s kiss”.Allie Folino, Glamour Magazine Art Director

Squalane + BHA Pore Minimizing Toner

5. Squalane + BHA Pore Minimizing Toner

Glamour Magazine also recognized our Squalane + BHA Pore Minimizing Toner in this year’s Clean Beauty Awards for its pore-refining efficacy. Many toners either hydrate or refine, but ours does both thanks to the powerful combination of squalane and beta hydroxy acids. 

“Like most dermatologists, I'm generally not a fan of toners, as they often have drying alcohol, which strips the skin of its natural oils. However, Biossance’s toner does not contain alcohol. Instead, it has hydrating squalane, as well as BHAs, which provide gentle exfoliation to unclog pores, so skin is left clear without being stripped.” — Tamara Lazic, MD, dermatologist

Our 100 percent mineral, non-nano zinc formula acts like a suit of armor for your skin, deflecting the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. It also contains soothing water lily and hydrating squalane to not only help protect, but to leave your skin healthier and more moisturized.

As a lifestyle writer and journalist, I’m excited to bring my passion for storytelling to Biossance as an Engagement Content Writer. Two things you should know about me: I have a deep love of the ocean (especially sharks) and I’m obsessed with clean beauty. My bathroom cabinet is literally overflowing with my many-layered sustainable skincare routine. This combo is what led me to buy my first bottle of Vitamin C Rose Oil. I was so impressed by the way it improved my skin that I wanted to shout this brand from the rooftops. Three years later, and here I am doing just that. I’m excited to be on this journey of clean beauty innovation with Biossance, and to share it with you here on the blog.
