✨Squalene is good. So good.
Squalene from sharks is not. 🦈
Squalene has become one of those hot skin and hair care ingredients for it's amazing moisturizing properties (and more!), but what most don't know is that the majority of products containing squalene come from shark livers and is processed in such a way that negates the beneficial properties and is not good for you.
So squalene from sharks means:
Unnecessary animal cruelty/death
Bad for you
it doesn't truly work the way natural squalene from your own system or from olive oil (which is what Neil Naturopathic uses) does
Avoid shark-based squalene
Let's do our part for these endangered creatures and make sure our hair and beauty products that contain squalene are shark-free.
