Coenzyme Q10 Plus E
Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamin E are the most important lipophilic skin antioxidants. Both, structurally closely related to each other, are naturally present in almost every body cell, including the skin, with higher levels in the epidermis/horny layer than the dermis. The sebum is particularly rich in these lipophilic antioxidants that have the job to protect the outer skin surface from oxidative attack. However it has been shown that the level of mainly Coenzyme Q10 declines with age. Topical application of coenzyme Q10 and vitamin E will help to balance the endogenous antioxidant level. Q10 plus E is a specially designed combination of Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamin E acetate for premium personal care applications, especially for mature skin. Coenzyme Q10 is essential for "cell breathing", energy transportation in the mitochondria and is essential to generate energy (ATP) for the body. From about 40-50 years of age the coenzyme Q10 levels in the body start to decrease.
