CoQ 10 for Natural Skincare

Here’s Why You Should Look For CoQ10 in Your Skincare Products

You may have heard a lot about CoQ10 as a supplement, but do you know what it is and why it’s an important natural skincare ingredient?

What’s in a Name?

Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10 for short, is also known as ubiquinone. It is a vitamin-like, fat-soluble substance that occurs naturally in the body and is vital for energy production. Its other benefit is as an antioxidant. Like many other naturally produced substances, when we’re young we’re usually able to produce as much CoQ10 as we need, but aging and stress slow its production leading to dull skin, among other impacts.

Many people take CoQ10 supplements to treat a variety of conditions, ranging from heart issues to diabetes and migraines. (If that is of interest, of course, please check with your doctor before taking this, or any, supplement.) 

As you may have noticed recently, CoQ10 is also gaining popularity as an ingredient in natural skincare products, and for good reason.  

Five benefits of CoQ10 for luxury skincare.


  • Energizes cell activity to repair damage and keep skin cells healthy. When skin cells are active, they can effectively use nutrients and release toxins. But as we age, this process slows.
  • Fights the effects of sun damage. The antioxidant properties of CoQ10 protects skin from UV rays and free radicals that damage and age skin.
  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production. This keeps skin firmer and more elastic, reducing the appearance of fine lines.
  • Helps prevent or fade sun spots and hyperpigmentation. CoQ10 blocks the production of tyrosinase which is the catalyst for melanin production. 
  • Improves skin radiance. Energized skin cells repair and regenerate faster, helping maintain a more youthful radiance.
