When it comes to the skin, CoQ10 is a potent anti-oxidant and energizer - a great combination that provides an excellent range of benefits to the skin that improves its appearance and stimulates self-renewal. 

Which is why CoQ10 is a treasured topical skin care ingredient in Japan  - where many skin care innovations are pioneered.

Studies have shown that CoQ10 helps boost production of collagen and elastin, repairs skin UV damage and provides energy to skin cells to boost metabolism,  This enhanced regeneration results in decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and increases skin smoothness and overall health.

Energy boosting to improve skin cellular metabolism is an area of important research for the skin benefits it may provide.  Healthy cellular metabolism enhances the bio-synthesis of essential molecules like collagen and elastin. As we age, cellular energy production and regeneration/renewal declines leading to an increase in the visible signs of aging like wrinkles and loss of elasticity.

Furthermore, the skin’s ability to produce CoQ10 declines with age. The good news is that topical application of CoQ10 absorbs easily.  This replenishment of CoQ10 levels facilitates increases in cell metabolism, energy and reduces the impact of UV radiation damage.

Restoring CoQ10 content in the skin to more youthful skin levels promotes the decrease of these visible signs of aging.

What we like the most about CoQ10:

  • It’s a very strong anti-oxidant that reduces damaging free radicals and increase the skin self-renewal capacity.
  • It’s regenerating benefits improve skin texture, decreases wrinkles and increases elasticity
  • It easily penetrates deep into the skin replenishing CoQ10 to more youthful skin levels
  • It leaves the skin looking smooth, younger and healthier
