Q10 is a coenzyme found naturally in all body cells. It's 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. Internal processes can also cause the release of free radicals, which causes further damage to the skin. CoQ10, or coenzyme Q10 is produced as an antioxidant to combat this oxidative stress and keep your skin looking healthy.
As we age, the levels of natural coenzyme 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, making it more susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles.
This is why it is so important to help the skin keep its natural Q10 levels. Our NIVEA Q10 POWER formula is clinically proven to effectively replenish Q10 and to reduce wrinkles and fight the first signs of ageing.
