Hydrated Summer Skin: Focus On Squalene

Hydrated skin is not only healthy skin, but younger and fresher looking, plump, luminous and happy skin. It has a smooth texture and appears soft and supple and is less likely to age prematurely.

The sebaceous glands in your skin produce sebum; a wonderfully complex oily, acidic mixture of fatty acids, waxes, and other natural chemicals that form a natural barrier and one of its functions is to ensure that the outer layer of the skin is protected from losing water.  If your skin doesn’t have enough sebum, it wont have enough water, it just evaporates and may leave your skin feeling dry, tight and flaky. As you age, the number of sebaceous glands in your skin reduce and the amount of oil secreted onto your skins surface by these glands decreases and as a result, your skin loses its ability to hold moisture naturally. The water content of your skin needs to be substantial enough to result elastic, dewy looking skin which is soft to the touch. Where the top layer contains a minimum of 10% water, but ideally the level should be between 20% and 35%.

The squalene from Amaranth Seed Oil found in Biotech Suprême Pressed Serum is nourishing, hydrating and boosts the skins ability to regenerate – vital to skin as water is to life. Everyone is born with squalene in their skin – every skin type, every age group, every ethnicity. Squalene is the skin’s principal lipid, natural emollient, built- in moisturiser and skin antioxidant. A natural constituent found in human sebum, our skin contains 12% squalene. Human sebum is a water loving lipid, keeping skin moist, lubricated and supple – just as nature designed it. Squalene production begins to decrease in the skin from age 25 decreases, resulting in the dehydration that leads to ne lines, wrinkles and premature ageing.

Strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which may be especially important for those who suffer from skin conditions such as psoriasis or dermatitis. Almost an unique extract, the Biotech Suprême Pressed Serum contains 12% squalene; aiding smoothness and moisture retention for skin through its positive effect on trans-Epidermal Water Loss.
