Versagel SQ is a great additive or substitute in both oil-based formulas and emulsions. It is a gelled squalane product, which is naturally present in the skin lipid barrier and is an ingredient known for its exceptional moisturizing abilities and its ability to penetrate the skin to deliver benefits. Like jojoba, it closely mimics the body’s natural moisturizers and is absorbed quickly and effectively, without leaving a greasy residue on the skin. Squalane is a non-GMO, plant-derived ingredient and Versagel SQ is a high-quality replacement for shark and olive squalane. It is derived from plant sugar, is ECOCERT approved, and is readily biodegradable as well.
