All About Ubiquinone
Naturally present in every cell of the body, Ubiquinone is responsible for the basic functions of the skin, namely:
The process of growth;
The repair process;
The reduction in the production of coenzyme Q10 is triggered by various factors, namely:
This natural molecule serves to combat free radicals. It reduces feelings of fatigue and delays skin aging.
The defensive function of the skin diminishes with age, which makes it vulnerable to oxidative stress and leads to the appearance of blemishes and fine lines.
Ubiquinone is a substance required for energy production in cells. Besides age, cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins) also contribute to the decrease in blood levels of coenzyme Q10.
Extracted from tobacco leaves, the fermentation of beetroot or sugarcane also allows for the production of Coenzyme Q10. It is present in many foods such as fish and in beef and lamb meat.
What is the usefulness of Ubiquinone?
Ubiquinone fulfills two functions:
It provides energy: it promotes the production of cellular energy in the mitochondria;
It protects cells from the attack of free radicals. These are naturally present in the body. The amount of free radicals can increase due to stress, UV rays, and environmental toxins.
Ubiquinone is a skin maintenance agent:
It prevents oxidative stress in skin cells;
It protects dermal fibroblasts from photoaging and chronological aging;
It reduces the depth of the rides.
Ubiquinone: In which skincare products is it found?

Our Q10 serum contains it. This treatment prevents the appearance of fine lines, making it an ally for mature skin. It is recommended for individuals between the ages of 30 and 40. Morning and evening, it is appropriate to apply 2 to 3 drops under your eyes. You then simply need to gently massage the eye contour, particularly at the level of fine lines, making circular movements. You can then apply your moisturizing cream.
This treatment is suitable for all skin types, particularly mature skin. If discomfort is experienced, discontinue use. If crystallization occurs, it should be stored at room temperature until the crystals disappear.
