Q10 is an antioxidant that occurs naturally in human cells, where it plays an important role in energy production. The older you are, the less Q10 is in your skin. That is why Q10 or Ubiquinone is also considered an anti-aging active ingredient - we prefer to say healthy aging . Q10 is used as an active ingredient in cosmetics, but can also be ingested through nutrition.
Q10 in cosmetics
As an ingredient in cosmetic products, Q10 has been proven to penetrate the upper layer of the skin. It softens the depth of wrinkles .
You can tell whether there is enough Q10 in your skin care product by the yellow color . If your skincare product with Q10 is yellow, it will contain enough Q10 (unless it's tinted) to keep your skin less wrinkled and smoother in the long run.
Q10 in food
Q10 can be found, for example, in fish, spinach and nuts, but also in food supplements with Q10. You should not take ubiquinone at night. Because it is so important for energy production, it has a stimulating effect similar to that of caffeine. Your skin will also benefit if you ingest Q10 through food.
