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.
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 Biossance.com, $1 is donated to this great cause).
