Cellular Energy Source
Coenzyme Q10 is naturally produced by the body and plays an important role in cellular energy production, as it converts the nutrients in our cells into energy. This energy is important to maintain the vital processes of skin regeneration and skin renewal. However, the body’s own production of coenzyme Q10 decreases as we age, which reduces cell activity, slows the absorption of nutrients and decelerates the disposal of harmful substances to the tissue fluid. All in all, the skin becomes more fragile towards harmful environmental influences and begins to show visible signs of aging. Adding Q10 to your skincare routine reactivates that natural biological process.
The coenzyme was first discovered by biologist Fred L. Crane in 1957, studying mitochondria in the hearts of cows. Its chemical structure was discovered by biochemist Karl August Folkers a year later. The British scientist Peter D. Mitchell was awarded the 1978 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the groundbreaking discoveries regarding the role of Q10 in the human body.
Q10 promotes cellular energy production and cell activity. It helps to protect against oxidative stress, UV damage and premature aging and leaves the skin feeling energized and revitalized.
