question about squalane

is anyone familiar with this ingredient. It is an ingredient in Dan's moisturizer and in my daughters makeup but from what I have read about it I kind of worry about it. From what I have read squalane is derived either from shark liver oil, wheat germ oil, or olive oil but yet squalane is not on the list of comedogenic ingredients but shark liver oil and wheat germ oil are. So, why wouldn't squalane be on there? what is different about this ingredient?

There are varying reports. Pure squalane, ie, using only squalane as a moisturizer...is implicated in breakouts for some people.

Squalane as an ingredient in moisturizers is not implicated in breakouts as it is not in high concentrations.
