Neossance Squalane

Derived from Bonsucro-certified renewable sugarcane, Neossance™ Squalane is a more stable form of our body’s natural moisturizer, squalene, providing superior hydration and anti-aging benefits compared to other emollients. It replaces traditional squalane extracted from shark liver or impure and inconsistent olive oil squalane.
