  • SqualEne in sunscreen good or bad?

    Posted by Zink on January 13, 2017 at 4:13 am

    Squalene can be oxidized by uv light, but is this a concern in a sunscreen formula where it’d be protected by the sunscreen active and penetrate into the stratum corneum?

    Seems like it could be beneficial and act as a cholesterol precursor and emollient. Anyone looked into this more closely?
