Cancellations are not allowed because an item's not in stock. What do we consider large quantities/sizes of our products? Some examples are products classified as bulk, essential and fragrance oils sold in 5+ lbs. and certain quantities of packaging materials.Sold by weight. "Squalane is a stable, complex biogenic liquid that is odorless, tasteless and transparent. Until recently, the primary source of Squalane was shark liver oil. However, after years of research, a group of European scientists have developed a new process to derive this precious moisturizer from a non-animal source, olives.
Squalane is chemically inert material that is a normal constituent of the human sebum. Since Squalane is naturally-occurring in man and is non-toxic, non-irritating, hypoallergenic and non-sensitizing, it is an ideal natural emollient.
Squalane works synergistically with other emollients and humectants in formulas to enhance their penetration into the stratum corneum. This helps replenish the skin's natural emollient, sebum that is essential for healthy looking skin. Dry parched skin now feels dramatically softer, more supple. It works and it is also expensive."

Smooth Skin from Head to Toe!
If you haven't tried this oil yet, you are seriously missing out. I've been using this oil for about 4 years now and it's the best product I've ever put on my face. It's very light and sinks in quickly. As someone who use to suffer from cystic acne for 16 years, I can tell you from experience this stuff works! I've found that this oil is phenomenal after an exfoliation.

Squalane for a soft face
I have ordered this squalane oil from Camden-Grey twice and plan to order again soon. This oil is very lightweight and is similar structurally to the oils that your face naturally produces. I use it in a night serum that I make and also a acne prone skin oil/moisturizer as it is non-comedogenic. It absorbs quickly and makes your skin feel incredibly soft. I have had a hard time finding a supplier of squalane that also carries other carrier oils, and ingredients for my cp soaps. I am very glad that camden-grey carries such a wide selection for all my needs. It has consolidated my ordering process greatly, and I have also been very happy with the quality.

I just got this and tried it today with emu oil. Its really great stuff. Its so light and sinks in so fast on its own, I'm wearing it under mineral makeup now. I don't have another oil I'd put on before my makeup. It really is that light. I think its a great idea to use this own its own, not diluted in a formula. Its so thin and speads so easy, a little goes a long way. My skin is so soft, I've bought expensive creams and never had anything this nice before.

Wonderful facial oil!
Thank you Camden Grey for this product! I never knew about Squalane until I saw it in this website. Ordered it out of curiosity, and love it so much now, I can't go without it. Now I use it regularly, by itself on my face, it penetrates fast and skin feels light and glowy. And I don't have to buy expensive lotions anymore! Also love the fact that Camden Grey gives you so much info on the products. This site has been my favorite for a long time.

Friend's response says it all
Ran into a friend yesterday who wanted to know what I'm "doing different". I've using squalane for about a week, mostly around my eyes and throat. There's a definite difference in the firmness and texture of my skin, and the fine lines I had are just about invisible. Some may call it a 'face lift in a bottle', I prefer to call it my own little miracle. Keep carrying it, please, because I plan to keep buying it.
