Care products with the skin’s own Q10: The foundation for firm skin
Q10 serves as our body’s own radical scavenger. It neutralises the aggressive oxygen compounds that attack our connective tissue and make our skin slacken more quickly.
Nutrition for the skin
Q10 is contained in many foods: for example, foods such as meat, (beef, poultry), sea fish (especially in sardines), eggs, vegetable oil, nuts, almonds, soya, potatoes, green vegetables such as spinach and broccoli, and pulses, are especially rich in Q10.

What causes a deficiency of the body’s own Q10?
The energy formula for firmer skin
NIVEA has enriched its firm-skin formula with a new combination of ingredients: the formula contains the special “energy complex” with the coenzyme Q10, L-carnitine and creatine to ensure an even better effect at cellular level.
The coenzyme Q10 produces the body’s natural “fuel” and is essential for energy production at cellular level. The skin requires L-carnitine to produce metabolic energy. It transports the lipids to the cells’ powerhouse, known as mitochondria, where they are transformed into energy. Creatine, on the other hand, works like a battery, storing and emitting the generated energy in the cells.
The result: The energy in the skin cells can be increased and influences the regeneration, repair and division of cells. Combined with the right care, the skin will feel firmer, tauter and softer.
