It’s no secret that I am a clean beauty fiend and have been since my college days. Haircare, skincare, makeup, household cleaning supplies — I want it all to be made with non-toxic ingredients that are safe for my ultra-sensitive skin.
While I pride myself on being the girl who tries all the clean beauty products I can get my hands on, I surprisingly had never tried Biossance.
And let me tell you, it’s good… I mean really good!
Biossance is offering TME readers a special discount code — THEMOMEDIT20 — to get 20% off sitewide (including their brand-new body cream!) for the next 30 days!
The 411 On Biossance Clean Beauty & Squalane
Biossance is a TME favorite, and I am so happy that I finally was able to get my hands on some for myself. I love a good luxe skincare moment, and these products will 100% be worked into my daily rotation.
You may have some questions about what makes Biossance “clean,” as well as what “Squalane” actually is. So let’s take a deep dive into what these actually mean for Biossance!
Is Biossance Really Clean Beauty?
Biossance’s mission is to make all beauty clean. Their products are formulated without parabens, without synthetic fragrances, and without over 2,000 ingredients that are potentially toxic or questionable. They are proudly vegan, cruelty-free and EWG-verified. Biossance holds the highest standards for skincare that is clean, safe, sustainable and effective. And if you are a curious cat like me, you can find more tea on the Biossance brand mission here.
What Are The Benefits Of Squalane?
Squalane is a mega-moisturizing molecule: a weightless, non-comedogenic oil that instantly hydrates while locking in essential moisture. Our bodies produce their own version (known as squalene) but our ability to produce and retain it decreases as we age. Traditionally in skincare, the super-moisturizing molecule Squalene is harvested from shark livers, but Biossance derives their version of Squalane from sugarcane (yay, sustainability!). The sustainable and clean version of Squalane is featured in every. single. one. of their products. A win-win if you are looking for ultra-moisturized and dewy-looking skin!
Before we get into all things skincare, I have to mention one of Biossance’s newest products…this Squalane + Caffeine Body Cream is a dream. It feels like you are applying silk onto your skin, and it leaves it feeling ultra-hydrated. I like to use this at night before bed. It’s a total treat!
Vitamin C oil is certainly having a moment right now. Every skincare regimen I’ve watched lately has highlighted the need for a great Vitamin C oil, and this Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil is perfection. Not only does it feel luxurious and silky on my skin, but it also helps with brightening, firming and hydration. It’s the trifecta formula to help provide that youthful and glorious skin. The rose petal extract within the oil helps to calm and soothe skin (which is perfect for helping reduce redness on my cheeks). Apply this all over your face and neck and it can be used morning and night. For daytime use, I recommend pairing it with the Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen, too!
One of my biggest concerns when it comes to my skin is wrinkling and dark circles around my eyes. And while I have minimal issues with those two concerns right now, I like to approach my skincare with prevention in mind. The Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream is designed to lift, firm, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area. It’s great for all ages and many longtime fans rave about the results!
I recently switched to a new birth control and it’s wreaking havoc on my skin. While I am not acne-prone, the acne I have been getting as of late has been scarring my skin. This dark spot serum has white shiitake mushroom, which helps to fade dark spots. This is another dual-acting product, and the 10% Vitamin C helps to simultaneously brighten your skin. Not only does it start degrading dark spots immediately, it helps to prevent new ones from forming.
I am in LOVE with the Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer! It has a slight cooling effect, and I personally think it’s the perfect moisturizer for summer. It’s lightweight, yet hydrating, and feels breathable on my skin.
