The Ordinary 100% Plant derived Hemi-Squalane is a non-polar hydrocarbon that is produced from the fermentation of sugar-based feedstock.

Squalane and Hemi-Squalane are both excellent non-comedogenic emollients that can help to reduce the ongoing loss of hydration that weakens dermal elasticity and suppleness. However, due to its low molecular weight, Hemi-Squalane has greater spreadability and leaves a light and dry after-feel, making it very suitable for reducing hair frizz.

This formula is more lightweight and fast-absorbing to the skin. Suitable for all skin types.
