Biossance bans more than 2,000 potentially toxic or irritating ingredients from our formulas. Our products are also cruelty-free, vegan and EWG-verified. We make our hero ingredient, squalane, from renewable sugarcane. It’s nature’s best moisturizer for you and the planet—and helps save 2 million sharks every year.
