No Compromising With Your Skincare

Biossance Squalane Vitamin C Rose Oil Skincare Sephora Face Oils

I couldn’t be more excited to share with you today’s post. In part, because I secretly love science and I get to share with you what I have learned. But mostly because I get to rave about my new skincare partner, Biossance!

Dry skin is a topic I have spoke about prior and is something I have struggled with for a while now. However, thanks to Biossance, my skin is feeling as refreshed as I can ever remember. Moisture in our skin, particularly as we get older, tends to naturally dry up. For me, the process has happened quicker than maybe most of us. Within our skin is a mega-moisturizing agent, squalane, which is a light oil made up of natural lipids that helps to keep our skin limber by reducing water loss. It’s produced organically but it’s presence often decreases with age. Now, to supplement this natural loss of moisture squalane has been used as an ingredient in luxury skincare products. However, at least historically, it has been collected from shark livers. As you can imagine, this is terrible and has a destructive impact on the environment.

Biossance has been able to create 100% plant based squalane sustainably from sugarcane. How great is this! Matt is a huge shark advocate (he dove with Great Whites off the coast of California) and loved hearing this too. Not only is it sustainable, but it instantly hydrates from head to toe locking in essential moisture. You may have heard of Argan oil and/or Jojoba before. Squalane has been proven to better accelerate skin cell turnover by 53% and 39% respectively. It has been what my skin has been needing for years. Below, I have highlighted a couple of my favorite Biossance products that I have been using and absolutely love.

First, Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil contains 4 key ingredients that brightens, firms, & evens your skin’s tone & texture. The squalane instantly hydrates, while the Vitamin C prevents free radical attack leaving the skin with a radiant glow. The chios crystal oil boosts natural collagen production, leaving the skin firm and supple. The Rose extract awakens your senses, ridding us of daily stressors and nervous tensions. Who can’t get behind that?!

The Biossance 100% Squalane Oil is my “Revitalizer” of choice! I apply it to my face, body, and hair to give it that added moisture. accelerates skin turnover, and leaves your skin looking silky and smooth. Another to check out, particularly if you ever have puffiness under your eye, is the Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel. I have added it to my daily regiment to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness under my eyes.

Where to buy?

Biossance is now available in-store and online at Sephora! You can’t miss their stunning new forest green bottles!!  Also, they are offering two free samples so you can get back the moisture you were born with! Another very cool thing about Biossance is their participation with an organization called Zagaya. They facilitate the eradication of malaria through collaboration around innovative and science-based technology. For every product sold on, $1 is donated to this great cause).

Thanks so much for reading!

    I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to see you’ve partnered with Biossance! I recently discovered their products from a sample promotion they were running all over FB. It was only $1 & no strings attached. The product seemed interesting so I decided to take a chance and ordered. And I am SO glad I did! Their products have been life-changing! I’ve had oily skin since adolescence but in the past 3 years or so, after hitting my late 30’s, it suddenly began to feel uncharacteristically dry. Not used to this I tried a bunch of different moisturizers and no matter what I did or tried I still had dry patches everywhere. Not to mention that annoying tight, itchy feeling. Biossance resolved all of that. Within the first couple of days of using the oils my dryness and patches were GONE! And the most amazing part was that despite it being an oil, it never felt greasy and gross. I can slather this on at night and in the morning my face is not an oil slick. My skin literally drinks it up. And I have a glow from within. I never knew what that meant until I began using Biossance. Truly a phenomenonal product. I highly recommend it to anyone that will listen. I’m happy you feel the same way
