CoQ10 skin care products offer superior antioxidant benefits and Co-enzyme Q10 is now considered an important anti aging ingredient in skin care.
First discovered in the 1950's, Coenzyme Q 10, or ubiquinone, has been identified as an essential component of overall good health.
It plays a key role in keeping skin looking youthful, healthy and vibrant. As a naturally occurring antioxidant CoQ-10 is found in every living cell of the body, and also decreases with age. Coq-10 provides necessary cellular energy for building new cells and tissue for smooth, firm skin.
In the skin, Coenzyme Q10's main function is to block free radicals - those molecules that cause damage - and to promote production of and help maintain collagen and elastin which keeps the skin firm and elastic. Read more information on collagen and wrinkles here.
Once we reach about age thirty, CoQ10 levels in our bodies naturally begins to decrease and most women have less than optimal levels of CoQ10 in their skin.
In skincare products Coenzyme Q10 is extracted from various natural plant sources.
The benefits of coenzyme Q-10 (ubiquinone) topically in skin care includes:
- helps stimulate new skin cell growth
- as an antioxidant it provides protection against free radical damage
- reduces wrinkles and smoothes skin
- helps rejuvenate and repair skin cells damaged by sun and environmental exposure
