SQUALANE VS SQUALENE
We chose to add #squalane into the Cella cream because of it's thin, ultra-light texture. It sinks into the skin fast to plump and hydrate without looking or feeling greasy.
And while it's incredibly healing on dry, rough, and chapped #skin, it's also unlikely to clog pores and is non-comedogenic for most people. The fact that it's odorless and non-irritating makes it perfect for sensitive skin, too.
However, it is often mistaken for #Squalene, with an e, naturally produced by the body. More specifically, it's produced by the sebaceous (oil) glands in our skin. The #sebum that our sebaceous glands produce is made up of triglycerides, wax esters, and Squalene.
However, Squalene in its natural state isn't very stable, which is why, for skin-care purposes, it goes through a saturation process to become squalane. In this post, we illustrated other differences between the two.
