has been our experience for many years that Squalane will clear up difficult
skin problems (eczema, dermatitis, rashes, etc.) when nothing else helps
very much. It also heals skin cracks, which are a significant health issue
in the winter as germs can easily enter the body through cracked
fingers/hands that have dried out from cold conditions. Squalane has these
unique abilities because the oil is naturally a major factor in skin
lubrication as well as providing germ killing activity when it is properly
concentrated in the skin. It helps to prevent the formation of brown age
spots and can protect against the radiation of the sun. In this regards it
is a major oil that prevents skin aging.
Squalane is also found in small quantities in olive oil, wheat germ oil,
rice bran oil, and yeast. BIOCHEMISTRY : Squalane has the molecular formula
