CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10 or Ubiquinone)
CoQ10 is a scientifically proven skin care active that plays two important roles in anti-aging:
It is essential for cellular respiration in the mitochondria (mitochondria:
convert energy into forms that are usable by skin cells).
Cell respiration is *essential* for cellular health and rejuvenation.
- It is a powerful antioxidant.
CoQ10 improves both the rate and efficiency of energy production in the cells and at the same time protects mitochondria from free radicals.

An advanced humectant that holds 1,000 times its weight in water and is used in hospital burn units.
Retinyl palmitate accounts for about 80% of the vitamin A found in the skin.
The advantage of using Retinyl Palmitate on the skin is that it is converted into retinoic acid in the cells and effectively gives similar results to those seen with retinoic acid.
It will help to keep skin stay soft and plump.
Studies show that L-ascorbic acid stimulates collagen synthesis, provides photoprotection, stays in the skin for up to 72 hours, and prevents UV immunosuppression, a reaction that occurs in more than 90% of skin cancer patients. Collagen synthesis is essential to maintain healthy skin. Studies show that collagen decreases with aging and that photoaging accelerates the decrease. L-ascorbic acid serves as a signal, relaying a critical message to collagen genes to synthesize collagen.
Green Tea Extract
Topical application of the major polyphenol antioxidant in green tea (EGCg) reduces the number of free radicals and inflammatory prostaglandins produced by immune cells in skin in response to UVB sun rays. The results suggest that skin products containing sufficient green tea extract may help protect against UVB-induced skin aging and skin cancers.
