Coenzyme Q10: The facts
What is Q10?
Q10 is a coenzyme found naturally in all body cells. It's vital for energy production to fulfil the skin’s basic functions such as regeneration and repair. As our skin is the outermost layer of the body, it is constantly exposed to various external factors, including oxidative stress caused by the sun’s UV rays. Plus, internal processes can cause the release of free radicals which cause further damage to the skin. Coq10, or coenzyme Q10 is released as an antioxidant to combat this oxidative stress, which is why it is so essential for smooth, healthy-looking skin.
As we age, the levels of natural coenzyme Q10 in our skin decrease. Due to the fact that it is such a vital antioxidant and crucial for the energy production process, a reduction in Q10 makes the skin more prone to increased stress and damage. This makes it more susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles, and that’s why integrating products with Q10 into your skin care routine could help to maintain younger-looking skin for longer.
The Q10 Plus Replenishment Study
The study involved 82 testers applying the product twice daily and it took 24 research experts seven months of extensive studying, measuring and analysing data. The results were clear – applying the NIVEA Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Serum Pearls twice a day for two weeks significantly increased the amount of coq10 in the skin.
