What is squalene?
Squalene is a polyunsaturated hydrocarbon. Its structure is similar to vitamin E, but instead of two isoprenoid groups, it contains 6 (isoprenoids are the most powerful natural antioxidants) and is also very present in nature.

The squalene manufactured by Oleicfat comes exclusively from olive oil. Therefore, we can certify the following:
As it is a natural product, the purity of the olive squalene varies depending on the characteristics of the olive oil produced in the corresponding season, but Oleicfat always guarantees a purity in our olive squalene of at least 92%.
The advantage of olive squalene with respect to animals is that olive squalene is a totally sustainable product, produced from derivatives of olive oil and without the impact of the overfishing of marine resources that the animal squalene need.
