is a unique saturated hydrocarbon also known as Perhydrosqualene, Spinacene, Dodecahydrosqualene and its chemical description is 2,6,10,15,19,23 Hexamethyltetracosane (C30H62) with Mol weight 422,82.

Both squalene and squalane exist as normal components of the human sebum to the extent of 10% and 2,5% respectively. Since squalane is a fully saturated material it has practical advantages over squalene since it’s: non-oxidising, non-drying and stable

Squalane is non-toxic, non-irritating, non-allergenic and completely compatible with the human epidermis according to the normal tests applied for the evaluation of cosmetic materials.

In appearance squalane is a colorless liquid oil which is odorless and tasteless.Since squalane is a natural component of the human sebum, it acts as a mild liquid vehicle able to give flexibility and smoothness to the skin without any unpleasant greasy feel.

Squalane assists in preventing water loss from the skin's surface., which causes skin hydration and increases the percutaneous absorption of other active substances.

Squalane is used in several internationally known cosmetic formulations, mainly in the highest segment of cosmetic ranges.

VESTAN has developed and registered an unique squalene hydrogenation process, which has been used and recognized worldwide by customers since company’s foundation, having consistently reached and overpass their minimum standards.

The hydrogenated squalene, the squalane, reaches an iodine value lower than 1,00 and with some high quality squalene, it can reach an iodine index lower than 0,10.

The lower the iodine number, the less C=C bonds are present in the squalane, thus the better is the hydrogenation.
