Scientific Name: {Co-enzyme Q10}
Common Names: {Ubiquinone, Ubidecarenone, Co-enzyme Q, CoQ, Q10, CoQ10}

CoQ10 goes by many names in the health community, including Ubiquinone and Co-enzyme Q10. Naturally found in the body in the mitochondria of cells, this enzyme aids in energy production.

It also plays a vital role in developing individual cells and maintaining young, healthy cells. Like all the best ingredients for skin, CoQ10 is also an antioxidant, which makes it great for replenishing the appearance of aging skin.

Plus, it helps to eliminate the appearance of many photo-aging-related signs.

CoQ10 has some non-cosmetic applications. Naturally found in most kinds of meat, the extracted and concentrated form is more powerful when taken as a supplement.

Some have even lauded it for its cancer-fighting benefits, as the antioxidant power can sometimes seek out and neutralize cancer cells. In addition, those with a heart condition or other illnesses related to poor energy production in muscle tissues are also treated.

When we are young, there is plenty of CoQ10 in our bodies. So we use this enzyme to revitalize any harmed cells caused by the sun, nicks, or scrapes.

However, as we age, the cell's ability to produce and utilize these vitamins begins to leach away, and the vitamin becomes scarce in our system.

As a result, our face cells cannot regenerate properly, and this delay allows for blemishes, fine lines, and age spots to appear.

Applying CoQ10 can help combat these signs of aging by providing new energy to the skin cells. In addition, because it is also an antioxidant, it contributes to rounding up free radicals before they can wreak havoc on your skin.

A product that contains CoQ10 will deliver a vital link in the energy production and cell maintenance chain. This keeps healthy cells looking healthy longer and plumps and boosts decaying cells' appearance.

Moreover, CoQ10 is often paired with other antioxidants to boost their power and skin regenerating benefits.

Using a packaged product in an airless pump bottle is essential, as exposure to air can lessen the serum's effectiveness.
