The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane 30ml


The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane is a multi-purpose and innovative serum suitable for all skin and hair types, which offers exceptional hydration benefits that will keep your complexion supple and soft, and locks protected against heat.

The Plant-Derived Squalane serum gives a firmer and plumper complexion and leaves skin younger-looking as the pure squalane boosts blood circulation and promotes collagen synthesis. Enriched with anti-inflammatory abilities, the serum helps to soothe and nourish damaged skin. Sebum production is balanced, making it perfect for both oily skin and drier complexions too. The complexion is protected from the premature ageing effects of free radicals, ensuring a more youthful appearance.

The Ordinary oil uses pure plant-derived Squalane that is ECOCERT approved and is known to give skin superior moisturisation. The hero ingredient, squalane, is a non-comedogenic saturated and stable hydrocarbon that is found naturally in our bodies, meaning that our skin readily receives this oil and all of its benefits.

And it’s not just good for the complexion either. The multi-use serum can be applied to hair, too. A few drops will leave your tresses protected against heat damage and reduce breakage potential, as well as leaving a lustrous shine.

Why We Love It

The 100% Plant-Derived Squalane will give your skin an instant dose of hydration without weighing it down or leaving your complexion feeling greasy, like most plant oils. With a glass bottle and innovative pipette, the serum pampers the skin as it glides over the complexion, absorbing instantly and leaving skin soft and plump to touch.

How To Use It

Use the pipette to extract a few drops and apply to the skin. Massage into the skin, and use daily or as needed, ideally after water-based treatments.

For hair, run a few drops through damp hair to increase heat protection, add shine and reduce breakage.

Tip: We also love running a little of the oil over our lips - it gives the perfect soft sheen while infusing your pout with nourishing hydration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight oil that hydrates so well Lightweight, absorbs quickly and hydrates the skin really well. In the morning the skin feels softer and more supple. Suitable for mornings as well, it nourishes the skin, and if you allow for it to absorb, it makes the application of make up even smoother. Great for sensitive skin.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me This is the second The Ordinary product I have tried. I have read so many rave reviews about this brand that I really wanted to like it. Unfortunately it seems to cause my dry and sensitive skin to break out and flake.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mmm.... This product may have benefits if used long term. No benefit after 3 weeks. Fairly pleasant to use and very dry skin does feel eased. I don’t think it suitable for daytime use, it’s oily of course!
