Ultra O Active is a super refined natural and renewable concentrate of Olive Oil Unsaponifiables, where the main active substance is Squalene (min. 85%).
The Squalene molecule is a structurally unique natural triterpene compound that is one of the main components (about 13%) of the sebum lipids and is a vital element in skin protection.
Ultra O Active appears to function in the skin as a quencher of singlet oxygen, protecting human skin surfaces from lipid peroxidation due to exposure to UV light and other sources of oxidation that can damage collagen fibers and causes the accumulation of abnormal elastin.
It is known that the presence of Squalene in the sebum decreases significantly with age making the skin progressively more sensitive to environmental stress factors.
