What is CoQ10?

CoQ10—also known as ubiquinone, ubiquinol or coenzyme Q10—is a potent antioxidant that is naturally found in every cell in the human body and plays a vital role in energy production. It also protects our skin from the ageing effects of oxidative damage, including fine lines, wrinkles and the loss of elasticity.

While we naturally produce this fat-soluble compound, as we age our ability to do so decreases so it’s important to replenish our stores of this hardworking antioxidant if we are to experience luminous, healthy skin—at every age.

The Benefits Of CoQ10

Energises cells
Our cells—and specifically our mitochondria—require CoQ10 to produce energy, repair and regenerate but as we age, this process slows and we become susceptible to the sagging skin and wrinkles. Topical application of CoQ10 can reenergise our cells, helping them to work more efficiently, repair damage and stay healthier.

Improves skin tone
Proven to prevent the detrimental effects of photoaging, CoQ10 can improve overall skin tone by blocking tyrisonase—the enzyme that stimulates melanin production in the skin.

Supports collagen production
Oxidative stress caused by free radicals can speed up collagen degradation—leading to fine lines, wrinkles and loose skin with reduced elasticity. CoQ10, however, has been shown to reduce wrinkle depth and penetrate deep into the skin’s epidermis to increase antioxidant activity, protect your natural collagen stores and promote firmer, stronger skin.

Protects from free radicals
Free radicals can impair cell function—leading to skin inflammation and oxidative damage. CoQ10’s ability to energise cells, however, means your skin also becomes more resilient to the damaging effects of free radicals from external factors such as UV exposure and pollution. Remarkably, CoQ10 also helps to renegerate other antioxidants including vitamins C and E
—which are both critical for healthy skin.
