The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane
A Lightweight Plant-Derived Solution to Support Healthy Hydration
Hydrate and promote a soft, supple texture with plant-derived squalane.
What It is
100% Plant-Derived Squalane is a lightweight, non-comedogenic oil that is found naturally in the skin.
What It Does
This treatment hydrates and restores a soft, supple texture to all skin types (including acne-prone). It prevents moisture loss with regular use. It can also be applied to hair to add shine and protect from damage.
- Squalane: an emollient ingredient that is found naturally in the skin, making it an excellent hydrator for all skin types
Squalane is a saturated and stable hydrocarbon that is found naturally in the skin. It has very high emollience, is an exceptional hydrator and can prevent ongoing loss of hydration that impairs dermal suppleness. Squalane is non-comedogenic and is suitable for use on all skin types. It can also be applied to hair to increase heat protection, add shine and reduce breakage potential.
Note: This product uses 100% pure plant-derived Squalane that is ECOCERT approved and is a USDA Certified Bio-based Product.
Apply a few drops to your face after toners and water-based products as needed.
Frequently Asked Questions
I’m pregnant or breastfeeding. Is 100% Plant-Derived Squalane safe for me?
- This product is considered safe for use while pregnant or breastfeeding, but it’s best to check with your healthcare provider first.
I have acne-prone or oily skin. Can I use 100% Plant-Derived Squalane?
- Squalane is compatible with most skin types because it occurs naturally in healthy skin. It is fast-absorbing and lightweight, making it a great choice for acne-prone or oily skin. Because everyone’s skin is different, we recommend patch testing any new product before adding it to your routine.

If you date plant oils in your skincare routine, get ready to get engaged to 100% Plant-Derived Squalane now available from The Ordinary. Squalane may sound like a boring thing but it actually is a simple thing that does so much for skin and hair that we can just go on and on without end. It is a natural hydrocarbon that is present in the skin, helping to prevent loss of hydration and to improve suppleness. Unlike plant oils, Squalane is completely non-greasy, is exceptionally pure and stays stable in varying UV, temperature and oxidative conditions. Its non-comedogenic emollience hydrates while improving visible elasticity and texture. If you use it on your hair, it offers heat protection, stops moisture loss and prevents breakage. We basically use it everywhere. Our Squalane is 100% pure, 100% colourless, 100% odourless, 100% non-greasy and comes from 100% sustainable plant sources. You will 100% fall in love with it from the very first date.
