Squalene is a polyunsaturated hydrocarbon. Its structure is similar to that of vitamin E, but instead of two isoprenoid groups, contains 6 (isoprenoids are the most potent natural antioxidants) and also very present in nature.
Squalene manufactured in Oleicfat is 100% vegetable. Being a natural product, squalene wealth varies depending on the characteristics of olive oil that has been produced for the campaign, but Oleicfat always ensures wealth of, at least, 85 %.
The adventage of vegetable squalene about the animal one is that the plant squalene is a fully sustainable product, produced from olive oil and without the impact of the depletion of marine resources that produce animal squalene.
