Research Analysis

The Squalene market encompasses various derivatives, including Creams, Serums, Oils, and Masks, used extensively in the Personal care and cosmetics sector for their emollient properties. Squalene, a natural hydrocarbon, is sourced from both Animal-sourced (Shark liver oil) and Plant-based (Olives, Vegetable-sourced) sources. Animal-sourced squalene has raised concerns due to potential impacts on Shark populations. In contrast, Plant-based squalene is a sustainable alternative, gaining popularity among consumers.
