Squalene is an organic, unsaturated compound from the group of triterpenes and the group of hydrocarbons, which is produced by all higher organisms. Originally, squalene was only extracted from shark liver, hence its name squalus = shark. Today we know that squalene is also produced as an intermediate product in human skin and is an unsaponifiable component of some vegetable oils.
Our light yellow, slightly sour-smelling liquid squalene is obtained from olive oil by mechanical fractionation and is 100% of vegetable origin. Our squalene is COSMOS and NATRUE approved. It can be stored for at least 12 months.
The raw materials come from Europe and the production also takes place here.
