WHAT IS SQUALANE + OMEGA REPAIR CREAM?

Simply put, a repair cream is a moisturizer that’s meant to repair your skin’s moisture barrier. The moisture barrier, or “acid mantle,” is a layer of actively shedding skin cells that works as your skin’s natural armor. Its job: keep moisture in, and bacteria and irritants out. When the moisture barrier is compromised, your skin can look dry and irritated, break out, or become sensitive and reactive. 

Our Squalane + Omega Repair Cream is a moisturizer meant for all skin types that works to restore and maintain a healthy skin moisture barrier while also improving the look of wrinkles and rough skin texture and providing deep, all-day hydration.

Our repair cream’s rich, whipped texture enables it to hydrate deeply and absorb quickly, visibly plumping and nourishing the skin to help restore and support its moisture barrier. The result: exceptionally soft and supple skin that’s dewy, healthy, and radiant.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Our Squalane + Omega Repair Cream contains five key, active ingredients:

  • Omega fatty acids: these healthy fats are easily absorbed to plump and hydrate skin while fortifying its moisture barrier.
  • Sugarcane-derived squalane: our sustainable superhero ingredient provides weightless hydration while driving active ingredients deeper into the skin for maximum efficacy.
  • Hyaluronic acid: this deeply nourishing hydrating ingredient holds up to 1000 times its own weight in moisture, helping to visibly plump and maintain hydration on the skin’s delicate surface.
  • Ceramides: these natural components to the skin’s own moisturizing factor help maintain and prevent moisture loss.
  • Acai berry sterols: these natural, vegan plant sterols mimic the cholesterol naturally found in our skin.

  • 28 Day Clinical report card with positive results

    IS IT EFFECTIVE?

    As a science-backed brand, we run clinical trials on all of our products so we have hard data to support our claims of efficacy. Here’s what we found when we tested our Squalane + Omega Repair Cream on 35 women for 28 days:

  • 100% of participants said it improved skin hydration just five minutes after application
  • 100% said it improved skin barrier function after one week
  • 94% saw an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles after one week of use

  • In addition, our repair cream has received the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance™, which recognizes product innovations that provide benefits, and improve the quality of life for people with eczema and sensitive skin.

    WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

    We know what you’re thinking: “It works in a clinical setting, but what about in the real world?” As one of our best-sellers, our Squalane + Omega Repair Cream has earned an impressive 2800 five-star reviews. 

    Here are a few of our favorites:

    “This is the best moisturizer I have found. I’ve tried so many moisturizers looking for something that will keep my skin moisturized all day without feeling heavy, and this is the only one that I have found that checks every box.” - Tyler 

    “My Holy Grail! It’s the only moisturizer that will help with dryness and peeling since I was put on tretinoin a year ago.” - Arlene B.

    “I originally got a sample size of this in a gift set from Reese Witherspoon’s book club. It lasted for a week, and after I had used it all, I missed having it so much that I had to order it. This cream feels so nourishing, especially when my skin is feeling a little dry from using tretinoin. It also takes very little cream to make a real difference in my skin. This product feels so special and makes my skin feel amazing!” - Jennifer W.

    HOW DO I INCORPORATE SQUALANE + OMEGA REPAIR CREAM INTO MY ROUTINE?

    Incorporating our Squalane + Omega Repair Cream into your routine is easy. Just use it after your serum, and before your facial oil (if you use one). We’ve created this gentle, layered skincare routine to help you plump fine lines and target the signs of aging:

    Step One: Cleanse with our Squalane + Amino Aloe Gentle Cleanser. Pat Dry.

    Step Two: Using your ring finger, tap a small amount of Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream onto the ocular bone beneath your eye.

    Step Three: Apply a few drops of our Squalane + Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum and massage into your face using circular motions.

    Step Four: Moisturize with Squalane + Omega Barrier Repair Cream.

    Optional: Cocktail a drop or two of Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil into your cream for additional moisture and glow.

    Morning Only: Repeat steps one through four, then protect your skin with our reef-safe Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen.

    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.
