    • Squalane is a much lighter derivative of squalene and is noncomedogenic, making it ideal for oily and acne-prone skin types. However, it also soothes irritation and calms redness, making it beneficial for those with dry or sensitive skin as well.
    • In a four-week clinical study, users saw an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by 51%, an increase in cell turnover by 34%, and an improvement in uneven texture by 28%.
    • According to consumer test results, 87% of users felt it nourished their skin; 82% agreed it left their skin radiant, luminous, and glowing; and 75% saw an improvement in uneven skin tone.
    • A.M./P.M.

    Pat two or three drops onto cleansed skin daily, both morning and evening.

    • RealSelf tips:

    • To quench extra-dry skin, mix two or three drops of this face oil with a moisturizer like BeautyStat Cosmetics’ Universal Pro-Bio Moisture Boost Cream. Alternatively, apply the face oil first and then use the cream, as a final step, to lock in moisture.
