An enzyme produced naturally in the human body, found in all cells. It is involved in many biological functions including helping to produce energy, neutralizing free radicals, and keeping cells both inside the body and in the skin healthy. The presence of ubiquinone in cells decreases sharply as aging occurs. Necessary for healthy cell metabolism, it helps in collagen and elastin production. Also know as Coenzyme Q, it easily penetrates the skin and acts as a powerful antioxidant, preventing free radical damage that causes premature aging. Its benefits include shielding the skin from environmental damage, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reducing dryness, and smoothing skin texture.« Back to Glossary Index
