Coenzyme Q10

Ubiquinone
Oil and/or ethanol soluble 
Rich yellow powder
Origin: China

Our bodies naturally produce coenzyme Q10. Found in every cell and tissue, it is said to help neutralise free radicals, reducing their concentrations and minimising their effect on collagen and elastin in the skin, keeping skin cells healthy.

As we age we produce less. 
The levels of coenzyme Q10 in a person are highest in childhood and reduce with age. This drop in concentration of antioxidants is one of the leading causes of ageing skin.

Most people over 30 have below optimum levels of coenzyme Q10 in the skin and this lack can impede our ability to produce collagen and elastin. Collagen is important because it makes your skin firm, while elastin gives your skin flexibility. The loss of collagen and elastin causes skin to wrinkle and sag.

However, coenzyme Q10 can be replenished and topical application to the skin in the form of serums or creams is an excellent way to feed your skin this rich antioxidant and help fight the signs of ageing, helping to keep skin healthy, more elastic and looking firmer and younger.

Q10 Rich Serum

0.5g coenzyme Q10
0.5g vitamin E
5 drops of essential oil/s - optional

  • Combine cherry kernel and chia seed oils (you can use any carrier oils you like, these two make for a nutritious fast absorbing oil, suitable for use day and/or night) in a heat proof beaker or dish.
  • Weigh and add the coenzyme Q10 and add it to your oils.
  • Place in a water bath and stir until coenzyme Q10 is dissolved. It shouldn't take too long and take it off the heat as soon as it has, we don't want it getting too hot.
