The unsaponifiable fraction of Olive Oil contains, as a predominant component, the natural hydrocarbon, Squalene. Hydrogenation of this unsaponifiable fraction provides OLIVE DERIVED SQUALANE.
Low temperature chromatographic purification techniques which assure a final product of consistent high quality have been developed and no solvents are used at any stage of the manufacturing process for the production of Olive Derived SQUALANE.
Olive Derived SQUALANE is stable. No preserving agents or antioxidants are incorporated. It is equivalent to the human sebum and presents perfect compatibility with the skin.
Completely non-toxic, without color or odor, Olive Derived SQUALANE is perfectly adapted to modern up-market cosmetic formulations.
No animal testing has been carried out.
