#MisfitPreferred: Biossance 100% Squalane Oil

THE BACKSTORY: We’ve known about and have used Biossance’s 100% Squalane Oil for years (at least 5). It’s the first product we discovered from this beloved brand, and it’s still one of our ultimate favorites.

WHAT IT IS: If you recall the parents’ firm belief that Windex could fix anything from My Big Fat Greek Wedding, this is like the real-life version (except it actually works). It’s a weightless, multi-tasking (one might even go so far as to say all-purpose) oil that instantly hydrates while locking in essential moisture. It simultaneously hydrates and locks in essential moisture, reduces signs of redness and irritation, and leaves your skin baby soft and smooth.

WHY WE LOVE IT: How do we count the ways? Not only is the 100% Squalane Oil none-toxic and earth-friendly (It’s EWG verified and gets the highest marks possible on the Think Dirty App), but there is serious science behind why it’s so effective.

Believe it or not, the human body produces its own version of squalane (known as squalene), but the amount made and retained in the skin decreases over time, starting to decline in our 20’s, leaving skin rough, dry and vulnerable. Biossance’s 100% Squalane oil is essentially biology’s best moisturizer, replenishing your skin with what it once had.

THOUGHTFULMISFIT TIP: This product is so multi-purpose, it’s not even funny. Use it on your face, your body, and even your hair. Apply it before your moisturizer, or add a few pumps to your cream or lotion of choice. You can even add a few pumps to your bath to step away instantly moisturized.
