    What makes this product unique?

    Hemi-squalane is a non-polar hydrocarbon derived from the fermentation of glucose-based feedstock. Different from squalane (a saturated and stable hydrocarbon), hemi-squalane has lower molecular weight, therefore leaving a dry and light sensation after application.

    Both squalane and hemi-squalane are non-comedogenic emollients. Consistent use prevents loss of hydration that damages dermal flexibility. Many love applying a few drops of hemi-squalane to hair to reduce hair frizz. 

    Note: This product uses 100% pure plant-derived Hemi-Squalane that is USDA Certified Bio-based.

    All The Ordinary products carried by Worthee Cosmetics are 100% authentic (or your money back) and fragrance free.

    What does it do?

    The Ordinary 100% botanical hemi-squalane delivers exceptional moisture retention properties and helps prevent transepidermal moisture loss. Skin feels immediately nourished, replenished and supple after each use.

    Who is this product for?

    Ideal for all skin types in need of a moisturizer that relieves dryness and dehydration immediately.

    C13-16 Isoparaffin.

    For hair: apply a few drops on damp, clean hair to prevent dryness and make hair less frizzy.

    Great for dry skin

    LOVE this stuff! My face tends to get very dry in the winter months and this is the only moisturizer I found that get rid of the dry flakey skin. It goes on pretty greasy at first but within minutes my skin just drinks it up.

    Very hydrating and plumping

    This provides such good hydration that leaves your skin glowing. I apply it after using an exfoliating toner at night and I feel that it really balances my skin and leaves it looking radiant in the morning.

    absolute repurchase

    The only hydrator that doesn't clog my pores & has a lasting feel of hydration..
    I will use this up in both my hair and on my face.


    Wow, I am seriously impressed by this product. I have combo/oily skin, and this melted into my skin like butter. Good oils improve your own skin oils. This one is amazing! After 10 minutes, the serum had completely absorbed into my skin. It left my face feeling soft, hydrated, and calm. It's extremely light, and smooths my skin. You can also use this to de-frizz your hair without leaving an oily mess on the ends.
