Olive Squalane has developed quite a name for itself over the years, being recognised by many as “natures facelift”, keep reading to find out exactly why this natural ingredient has such a powerful effect on our skin!

Squalane is primarily sourced from Olives, however, can be found in small percentages in Rice Bran Oil, Wheat Germ oil and yeast. Squalane is incredibly versatile and used in many products beauty products as an emollient or skin conditioner.

Did you know that the oil our skin naturally produces is made up of approximately 12% Squalane? Olive Squalane mimic’s the oil our skin naturally produces and effectively and rapidly penetrates the skin, leaving it softer, smoother and more hydrated.

Our bodies naturally produce higher amounts of Squalane in our earlier stages of life, however, the older we get, the slower the production becomes. This is one of the reasons our skin is so supple in our youth and we begin noticing changes beyond our 30’s. Not to worry though, this just means we must be more conscious or sourcing products containing Squalane (Olive) if we want to keep our skin soft and supple.

 Some of the skin benefits from Olive Squalane include:

-          Natural anti-oxidant properties

-          Anti-bacterial effects on the skin

-          Non-comedogenic (fancy way of saying it doesn’t clog your pores)

-          Prevent UV damage and assist in the repair

-          Intensely nourishing and allows our skin to retain moisture (great for those with eczema and dry skin)

-          Cell regeneration properties (keeps our skin looking youthful)

We talk a lot about our Earth Cream Tinted Moisturiser, but we promise it is for a good reason. We use a couple of powerful olive based ingredients in this product for the reasons listed above and many more. Our Earth Cream Tinted Moisturiser provides the most beautiful coverage (you will be amazed at a how little goes a long way), it works to encourage and promote skin health by including many ingredients (like Olive Fruit Oil) that aid in the repair and restoration of skin health and include natural, broad spectrum sun protection to keep your skin protected from UVA and UVB rays.

“My experience with these products has been nothing less than amazing and has become apart of my everyday makeup routine. This cream is basically my new best friend.

I wear this cream every day to work now, it gives a beautiful glow and a light natural looking coverage whilst still concealing and blurring imperfections” – Ruby
