The facts behind Q10

The facts behind Q10

The facts behind Q10 Coenzyme Q10 is naturally produced in the body and makes an important contribution to the function of all body’s cells. The coenzyme, similar to a vitamin, is present in the whole body and can support numerous processes essential to life. In particular, Q10 is necessary in cell energy production in the mitochondria. It also acts as an antioxidant to ward off free radicals both inside and outside the cells. Free radicals accelerate skin aging and damage the cells. In addition, Q10 is found in cell membranes and the lipids on the skin’s surface, where it also fulfils its important task as an antioxidant. Q10 can protect the skin from damage caused by UV rays.

The result of NIVEA research

All NIVEA products are the result of a combination of a highly developed innovation culture and over a century of Beiersdorf’s competence in skin research. The NIVEA research team has been hot on the trail of the effects of Q10 for many years. Our scientists have been examining the role of the coenzyme Q10 in human skin and have been integrating it into our Q10 Power range of anti-wrinkle skin care.

Skin needs energy

Skin needs energy and a good line of defence

The skin’s own coenzyme Q10 is essential for generating energy and protecting the skin from oxidative stress. Since the proportion of Q10 in our skin reduces over the years, anti-aging products with Q10 help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and intensively nourish for younger-looking skin.

Q10: a scientific discovery

  • The American scientist Frederick L. Crane discovered the coenzyme in 1957.
  • The British chemist Peter Dennis Mitchell found out how Q10 works within cells. He received the Nobel Prize for Chemistry for his work on this in 1978.
  • Beiersdorf scientists have researched the effects of Q10 on the skin for a number of years and have been using it in skin care products since 1998.

Properties of the coenzyme Q10

Two of the most important functions of coenzyme Q10 in the body are generating energy and protecting cells.

Our Q10 research for your skin

After topical application of products containing Q10, the coenzyme penetrates the outer layers of the skin and nourishes the face for younger-looking skin.

In 1998 Beiersdorf introduced the first skin care products with the active ingredient Q10 onto the mass market. Since then the Q10 assortment has been continuously updated based on latest scientific findings.
