The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Hemi-Squalane
A Fast-Absorbing, Non-Greasy Hydration Solution for Skin and Hair
What It is
What It Does
- Squalane: an emollient ingredient that is found naturally in the skin, making it an excellent hydrator for all skin types
Hemi-Squalane is a non-polar hydrocarbon that is produced from the fermentation of sugar-based feedstock. Squalane and Hemi-Squalane are both excellent non-comedogenic emollients that can help to reduce the ongoing loss of hydration that weakens dermal elasticity and suppleness. However, due to its low molecular weight, Hemi-Squalane has greater spreadability and leaves a light and dry after-feel, making it very suitable for reducing hair frizz.
Note: The 100% Plant-Derived Hemi-Squalane used in our product is USDA Certified Bio-Based.
Hair Application—Work through damp, clean hair daily or as needed.
Skin Application—Apply a few drops to the entire face once daily or as needed.
Our formulations are updated from time to time as part of our commitment to innovation. As such, the ingredient list shown here may vary from the box of the product depending on time and region of purchase.

Say hello to The Ordinary''s 100% Plant-Derived Hemi-Squalane which is half the molecular weight of our original 100% Plant-Derived Squalane. This low molecular weight makes the formula incredibly light and dry to the touch while offering the same non-comedogenic emollience and moisturizing capacity, making this formula suitable for all skin and hair types. Like our original Squalane it can help to reduce the ongoing loss of hydration that weakens dermal elasticity and suppleness. It''s 100% pure, 100% colourless, 100% non-greasy and comes from 100% sustainable sugarcane.
Oh...and the honest pricing makes it look like we made a mistake but sometimes we do get things right and it really is just £2.75/$3.95/€3.60 (our lowest-priced product yet). 🙈
It's available now at www.theordinary.com and will be squeezing onto our store shelves throughout the week - BUT (big, important but), you might want to wait another day before placing your order: Black Friday is coming. 🖤
