Can Collagen Be Reproduced by Coenzyme Q10 Serum?

September 28, 2017


What’s the big deal about coenzyme Q10? Commonly abbreviated as CoQ10, it’s popped up in media coverage and health discussions about everything from cancer treatments to heart disease prevention. Yet there’s more good news about this essential nutrient: It’s also part of powerful skin treatments that improve smoothness and fight long-term aging effects.

Why Is Coenzyme Q10 So Important?

In lay terms, CoQ10 can be classified as an antioxidant. Under optimal conditions, it's found inside nearly every cell in the human body. In fact, the human body actually produces this essential substance. Not only that, it’s an antioxidant that also doubles as a coenzyme to help facilitate energy manufacturing, which aids cellular growth and maintenance. When applied externally, CoQ10 engaged in two key beneficial processes:

  • Encouraging collagen and elastin production
  • Stopping free radical cellular damage

What does this mean for your skin? First of all, the additional collagen and elastin decrease the appearance of wrinkles by reducing their depth and volume. Secondly, it stops sun damage in its tracks by halting cellular oxidation caused by free radicals, which can be released inside your outer epidermal layers after exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays.

A Big Player in Collagen Replenishment

You might know people who’ve added CoQ10 as a dietary supplement. In the skincare world, this antioxidant is frequently harnessed in products such as Coenzyme Q10 serum. Direct application allows the coenzyme to penetrate the outer surface of your skin. Once it soaks in, the CoQ10 can really get to work by boosting the energy production processes needed for rejuvenation. At the same time, it terminates harmful free radicals’ chain reactions to stop more damage.
