CoQ10 Benefits for Skin

Why do we love the anti-aging antioxidant CoQ10? Let us count the ways. From the firming, skin-brightening, and collagen-boosting designed skincare benefits it brings (they’re clinically proven and cannot be ignored) to its global appeal to how it helps our bodies, here’s why CoQ10 should be on your radar and on your skin.

CoQ10, also known as Coenzyme Q10 and Ubiquinone, is a powerhouse antioxidant that's making waves in the skincare world. As a naturally occurring compound in the body, CoQ10 plays a vital role in energy production and cell protection. When applied topically, CoQ10 enhances the skin's ability to defend against free radicals, reducing the signs of aging and promoting a youthful complexion. This ingredient is essential to boost collagen production and improve skin elasticity.

  1. It Reduces Fine Lines And Wrinkles

    When applied, CoQ10 helps to produce more collagen and elastin proteins needed for firm, elastic skin. 

  2. It Invigorates Skin Cell Repair

    Topical CoQ10 energizes skin cells in the deeper layers of the epidermis—and those active cells help skin to repair itself. 

  3. It Combats Free Radicals

    CoQ10 is known for its antioxidant capacity, keeping away free radicals, the main culprits for premature wrinkles.

  4. It Fades Dark Spots

    CoQ10’s antioxidant activity hinders the sun from damaging the skin while preventing protein breakdown, meaning less hyperpigmentation.

  5. It’s Ideal For All Skin Types And Ages

    Fortunately, CoQ10 is a versatile ingredient that works for all skin types and ages and can be used daily, morning and night.

  6. It Pairs Really Well With Other Actives

    You can pair CoQ10 with anything, from Retinol to AHAs and BHAs to Vitamin C to Hyaluronic Acid. 

  7. It’s A Major Player In Japanese Skincare

    CoQ10 enjoys a lot of well-deserved fame in Japan, being a staple in most skincare routines that Japanese mavens swear by. 

  8. It Goes By Other Names

    CoQ10 is also known as Ubiquinone and Coenzyme Q-10.

  9. It’s Most Effective In Serum Form

    A slight drawback of CoQ10 is its low water solubility. So, to facilitate CoQ10 skin penetration, always pick a serum.

  10. Exponent’s CoQ10 Doesn’t Degrade

    Since CoQ10 is an antioxidant, it quickly degrades when exposed to air, light, and water. Our powder CoQ10 stays at peak potency because it never sees the light of day or a drop of dilution. 

    Ok, admittedly we can’t stop at just 10, so here’s a couple more CoQ10 fun facts.

  11. It’s Present In Every Cell Of The Body

    CoQ10 is one of the essential lipid antioxidants in the body that hinders the generation of free radicals—but its production drops as we age, which is why it’s so crucial in skincare. 

  12. It Can Be Found In Food, Too

    You’ll find CoQ10 in fatty fish (like trout, mackerel, and sardines), beef meat, soybeans, broccoli, spinach, oranges, strawberries, pistachios, and peanuts.
