What is "Ubiquinone" and what is its utility?

What is "Ubiquinone" and what is its utility?

Also known as Coenzyme Q10, Ubiquinone presents itself as an orange or yellow crystalline powder. Its chemical structure is similar to that of Vitamin K. This substance is incorporated into many treatments intended for mature skin. The question that arises is: what is the utility of ubiquinone? Let's focus.

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 process of repair;

  • Regeneration.

The reduction in the production of coenzyme Q10 is triggered by various factors, namely:

  • Age;

  • The environment;

  • The lifestyle.

This natural molecule serves to combat free radicals. It reduces feelings of fatigue and delays skin ageing.

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 within cells. Besides age, cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins) also contribute to the reduction of blood levels of coenzyme Q10.

Extracted from tobacco leaves, the fermentation of beetroot or sugarcane also allows 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 fulfils two functions:

  • It provides energy: it promotes the production of cellular energy within the mitochondria;

  • It protects cells against the attack of free radicals. These are naturally present in the body. The quantity 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 ageing;

  • It reduces the depth of the rides.

Ubiquinone: In which skincare products is it found?

Ubiquinone is present in:

  • Anti-ageing skin creams;

  • Adult sun creams;

  • Body care products (lotions and creams);

  • Facial creams.

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 aged 30 to 40 years. 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 moisturising cream.

This treatment is suitable for all skin types, particularly mature skin. If you experience any discomfort, stop using it. If crystallisation occurs, it should be stored at room temperature until the crystals disappear.

It is advised that pregnant and breastfeeding women refrain from using coenzyme Q10. Furthermore, this substance can lead to undesirable effects such as nausea and vomiting.
