7.90 CAD
Squalane is a saturated and stable hydrocarbon that is found naturally in the skin. It has very high emollience, is an exceptional hydrator and can prevent ongoing loss of hydration that impairs dermal suppleness. Squalane is non-comedogenic and is suitable for use on all skin types. It can also be applied to hair to increase heat protection, add shine and reduce breakage potential.

Note: This product uses 100% pure plant-derived Squalane that is ECOCERT approved and is a USDA Certified Bio-based Product.
Apply a few drops daily or as needed to entire face ideally after water-based treatments. If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Keep out of reach of children. See how to combine multiple formulations from The Ordinary in a single regimen

Patch tests are an easy way to help predict if you may experience a negative initial reaction to a new product. It is recommended to perform a patch test before incorporating any new product into your regimen. We have outlined a general method for conducting your own patch test below based on the type of product.

  • Apply a small amount of the product onto a clean area of skin on the upper forearm.
  • Keep the area dry.
  • If the product has a specified duration of use, rinse off after this time has elapsed. Otherwise rinse off after 24 hours.
  • If any redness, burning, itching, blistering or irritation is observed at any time throughout the test, do not use the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hair serum ever! I used to use jojoba oil after washing in my towel-dried hair, now I use this serum. This serum makes the hair so beautifully shiny without making it greasy. It works even better than jojoba oil

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well, Well, Well. Okay listen. I am the noob who has been washing her face only when she showers and moisturizing afterwards. This changed three months ago when I started buying The Ordinary products. I am also that noob who thought she had normal skin. Like "oh, my flaking off a lil, totally normal." Then I got this product, and hot DANG my skin looks so good now that it's not screaming for help

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fine on skin, better on beard! I bought this with my first Deciem haul because it was in all the automated regimen suggestions. It doesn’t seem like this product is discussed much but I bought it anyway. I no longer use it to help provide moisture for my face as I don’t really need more than what I already use. A few days ago, while I was feeling kinda bad about wasting a product, I remembered that the product description says it’s good for hair. I had been trying to find something for my beard because the Dr Bronners is quite drying but I need it for eliminating beard drandruff. Squalane to the rescue! It really is perfect for a beard. It’s made for your skin, so it’s not going to clog your pores. It’s made by deciem and not from some random IG ad that’s full of hyper masculine b/s that’s supposed to be satire but also isn’t. It doesn’t have any scent like every other beard oil that for some reason has to smell like the woods, campfires, Sailor at SeaTM, mossy grass, a used axe idk you get the point. And it does the job well! Beard doesn’t feel dry or brittle and it makes it easier to tame. Deciem: I think there’s some marketing potential here :P I’m sure there are other people that feel similarly and don’t care for all the current super “manly” products and companies. Tldr; bought it for the recommended regimen and didn’t need it. Decided to use it in my beard and it works incredibly well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Non sticky ,light scent, good for summer I have used it for my hairs and skin.its non sticky, light and smooth on skin. I have normal skin and i felt it wasn’t enough for my skin in winter though i love to use it in summer . For hairs , it did not control the fizz i have thick and frizzy hairs but i liked the light fragrance it give to my hairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff Don’t get on with HA it drys my face out horrendously (and yes I apply on damp skin), but everything has this “wonder hydrator” in. Been using the squalane every cleanser and feels great, so on a whim got this after reading about and it is everything I needed to hydrate and plump my skin without greasiness, a must have for anyone who finds HA rubbish and needs some decent hydration and comfort. This stuff deserves a greater recognition, love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing oil! I love this oil, and that's coming from someone who hated oils. It's very light and didn't feel greasy or leave a sheen once I put it on. It absorbed quickly and is a dry oil. Once I put it on, I felt my skin become soft right away. It was great for the winter when my face and body needed something extra to protect from the dry air.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great basic oil! I was honestly impressed by this oil! If you want an oil in your regime, I would recommend this oil and I would re-purchase it just to have it around for days when I want a little something extra. It was great for a Toronto winter. I also purchased the B Oil and I found this one way better.
