Coenzyme Q10: An Underestimated Skin Care Ingredient

Sep 01, 2021

Coenzyme Q10 is a natural nutrient. It has multiple effects on the skin such as antioxidant, maintenance and repair of the epidermis, inhibition of melanin synthesis (whitening), reduction of collagen damage, and light damage. In recent years, this excellent ingredient seems to be underestimated by the skin care industry.


There are many ways of skin aging. In terms of exogenous nature, the light irradiating skin cells can induce the production of free radicals, which can cause damage. For endogenous, cells produce energy in cell mitochondria and also produce a large number of free radicals. If these free radicals cannot be eliminated in time, they will accelerate aging. Therefore, antioxidant is a very important way to prevent skin aging.

Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 is considered a regenerative antioxidant. It is an integral part of the mitochondrial electron transfer chain, depolarized by UVB-radiation, when the skin is exposed to coenzyme Q10 before UVB exposure, which can reduce the UVB's effects on skin cells. Co Q10 can prevent cell death induced by reactive oxygen free radicals, and can promote the synthesis of basement membrane components in epidermal and dermal cells.

Wrinkles and sagging skin are mainly due to damage of collagen and elastin fibers, while the newly generated collagen and elastic fibers can’t replenish caused. It is closely related to fibroblasts. Studies have shown that CoQ10 can significantly promote the increase in the number of fibroblasts and the regulation of protein expression.

The above content confirms that Coenzyme Q10 has a strong effect on skin care, is a "treasure" of cosmetic raw materials.
