In addition to Olive Squalene, we also offer Olive Squalane (please notice the subtle difference in the spelling of these two products). Squalene is a more affordable alternative that is well suited for products with shorter shelf lives and where slight color and aroma do not detract from the finished product. Olive Squalane is best suited for applications in which a clear and odor-free product are most desirable or for products requiring greater stability and shelf life.
