Coenzyme Q10: The facts

Discover how Q10 benefits the skin and how an anti-wrinkle formula with Q10 could help you maintain a more youthful complexion.

Q10 Plus – the product of more than 20 years of research

Beiersdorf have invested more than 20 years of intensive research into coenzyme Q10, how it works and its benefits for the skin. This has made it possible to create an anti-wrinkle face care range that combats the aging process naturally.

What is Q10?

Q10 is a coenzyme found naturally in all body cells and is vital for energy production to fulfil the skin’s basic functions such as regeneration and repair. As our skin is the outermost layer of the body, it is constantly exposed to various external factors, including oxidative stress caused by the sun’s UV rays. Plus internal processes can cause the release of free radicals, which cause further damage to the skin. Q10 is released as an antioxidant to combat this oxidative stress, which is why it is so essential for smooth, healthy-looking skin.

As we age, the levels of natural Q10 in our skin decrease. Due to the fact that it is such a vital antioxidant and crucial for the energy production process, a reduction in Q10 makes the skin more prone to increased stress and damage, often making it more susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles. That’s why it is important to integrate products with Q10 into your skin care routine to maintain younger-looking skin for longer.

The Q10 Plus Replenishment Study

Beiersdorf researchers were among the first to explore the use of Q10 for skin care formulas and have been carrying out scientific studies ever since. For the latest product within the series, the NIVEA Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Pearls a Replenishment Study was conducted which focused on whether the NIVEA Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Pearls could also replenish levels of Q10 within the skin.

The study involved 82 testers applying the product twice daily and it took 24 research experts seven months of extensive studying, measuring and analysing data. In the end the results were clear – applying NIVEA Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Pearls twice a day for two weeks significantly increased the amount of Q10 in the skin.

What makes Q10 Plus a unique skin care ingredient?

Intensive research by Beiersdorf has demonstrated how replenishing levels of the coenzyme Q10 can support the skin’s natural functions and protect it from damage, which would otherwise cause visible aging.

The evidence is clear – Q10 Plus does wonders for the skin

Not only did replenishment studies prove that applying Q10 Plus topically can replenish your natural Q10 levels, it also increases the metabolised form of Q10, which indicates that the Q10 is actually absorbed and used by the skin for energy production.
