Buy olives for beauty – leave sharks alone

“Dr. Susan Lark, a popular Internet physician, promotes squalane – an ingredient found in shark liver oil – for its ability to help skin “maintain its moisture and elasticity.” But squalane can be obtained from a much more abundant source: olives.

Deep-sea sharks are some of the most vulnerable sharks in the world. They typically grow slowly, mature late in life and have only a few young during their long lives. As a result, deep-sea shark populations are at extreme risk from exploitation and recover very slowly.

Tell Dr. Lark she ought to leave deep-sea sharks alone. The health – and beauty – of our oceans depends on it.”
