Frequently asked questions
Q1 What is Squalene and what role does it play in skin health?
A1 Squalene is an oil that your body naturally produces and uses
to form a compound called sebum in tiny glands known as
“sebaceous glands”. Around 12% of your sebum consists of Squalene.
Sebum combines with moisture and other compounds on the
surface of your skin to form a protective barrier between your
skin cells and the environment. This barrier helps to reduce
water loss and keep your skin cells hydrated.
Additionally, your skin cells can be vulnerable to oxidative
damage from unstable free radical molecules. Squalene has
natural antioxidant properties that can help to protect your
skin cell membranes against this oxidative damage.
Q2 What other roles does Squalene play in our bodies?
A2 Your body also uses Squalene to support several other
processes and systems. Squalene is needed by the body to
synthesize cholesterol and vitamin D. This is why this oil can
help to maintain general health and wellbeing, as well as
exerting its antioxidant activity to help reduce free radical
oxidative damage to the skin.
Q3 Where does the Squalene in this formula come from?
A3 All plants and animals produce some levels of Squalene.
Mid to deep water sharks contain a higher concentration of
squalene in their oil and it is from these sharks that Wagner
Squalene 1000 sources its squalene from.
