Introduction Squalane (C30H62) is widely used in cosmetic products due to its high skin hydrating capability. On an industrial scale squalane is obtained by hydrogenation under high pressure of its natural precursor molecule squalene, which is also used in personal care products such as skin moisturizers. Squalene is derived from two main natural sources, shark liver oil and vegetable oils, e.g. olive oil. The production of squalene and squalane from shark liver oil is less complex and cheaper…

Rapid Quantitative Determination of Squalene in Shark Liver Oils by Raman and IR Spectroscopy
TLDR
A validated gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis method for the quantitation of squalene in shark liver oils, with an accuracy of 99.0 %, precision of 0.23 % (standard deviation), and linearity of >0.999, which is more accurate than an industrial refractive index analysis method.
Methods for Obtaining and Determination of Squalene from Natural Sources
TLDR
The natural sources for squalene are reviewed, the main methods and techniques to obtain and to determine it are focused on and its applications in different fields of human activity are mentioned.
