Squalane vs Squalene

Squalane vs Squalene

What's the difference between squalAne and squalEne?

SqualEne is very unstable, comedogenic for some skin types, and will go bad quite quickly.

SqualAne is when squalEne goes through hydrogenation processing. This means it turns the squalene from an unsaturated oil into a
100% saturated oil.



  • Stable
  • Non-comedogenic
  • Not an anti-oxidant
  • Suitable for all skin types


  • Unstable 
  • Anti-Oxidant
  • Highly comedogenic
  • Oxidises Easily
