#OilWars: Squalane V. Argan And Jojoba Oil

Argan, jojoba, coconut, tea tree, almond or avocado. In the quest for silky hair/glowing skin/moisturized cuticles/a multi-tasking miracle, there are almost too many oils to choose from; each one touting a plethora of beautifying benefits. But all oils are not created equal.

That’s where our mega-moisturizing molecule, squalane, comes in. The human body produces its own version of squalane. But the amount you make and retain decreases over time—reaching peak levels in your teens and then freefalling into a downhill descent, leaving skin increasingly rough, dry and vulnerable. But fear not. To supplement this natural loss of moisture, squalane has been used as a luxury skincare ingredient. But it was historically harvested from shark livers—which has a devastating environmental impact—or unreliable sources, like olives.

So at Biossance, we created a 100% plant-based squalane sustainably from sugarcane. Our Brazilian grown sugarcane is an especially sustainable option, as the region’s abundance of rainfall means no additional watering is necessary for crops to flourish.  Our weightless ingredient isn’t only sustainably—it truly works by instantly hydrating from head-to-toe while locking in essential moisture, giving your body back what’s rightly yours.

Squalane may not be as widely known (yet) but it should be, and will be. The #MoistureRevolution is spreading and when it comes to the #OilWars, we’re excited to share our scientists’ findings.

 #OilWars: Squalane Oil vs. Argan, Jojoba Oil and Others

Squalane versus argan, jojoba, and coconut oil

Squalane is 53% better at accelerating cell turnover than argan oil, 39% better at accelerating cell turnover than joboba oil, and—unlike coconut oil—is non-comedogenic and has absolutely zero greasiness. Almost sounds too good to be true, right? It’s not. Squalane truly is the moisturizer of the future, because after all, your body knows best. Order our free sample duo of our 100% Squalane Oil and Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil (plus $4 shipping and handling) to see for yourself why squalane is winning not just the battle, but the entire war.
