Natura-tec Olive Squalene is a highly refined, natural, and sustainable concentrate derived from Olive Oil Unsaponifiables, primarily containing Squalene (minimum 85%). Squalene is a unique triterpene compound found in sebum lipids, comprising approximately 13% of these lipids, and plays a crucial role in safeguarding the skin. It acts as a shield against singlet oxygen, protecting the skin from lipid peroxidation induced by UV exposure and oxidative stress, which can damage collagen and lead to abnormal elastin accumulation. With Squalene levels in sebum decreasing as we age, Natura-tec Olive Squalene becomes essential for restoring skin suppleness, flexibility, and resilience, all while being swiftly absorbed without leaving an oily residue. It also exhibits anti-glycation and antioxidant properties, reducing AGE formation by 45% at just 1% concentration and decreasing free radical formation by 50% at 2.35% concentration, respectively. Additionally, it enhances SPF, minimizes redness, and combats dehydration, making it a versatile ingredient for skincare and sun care formulations, as well as haircare products, where it nourishes hair bulbs and alleviates dryness.
