Vitamin C and retinol may have lead roles in the skin care scene, but CoQ10 is seeping in, slowly stealing the limelight. Here’s why:
CoQ10 is a compound made naturally by the body and stored in the mitochondria, aka the powerhouse of energy that protect cells from oxidative damage and disease-causing bacteria or viruses. While stored in some foods such as broccoli, fish, and peanuts, only about 25% of our CoQ10 levels come from food intake. With that in mind, and the fact that as we age, our levels of this very important nutrient decrease, skin care consumers suddenly become key consumers for your brand.
Protection From Within
The skin’s worst enemy is oxidative stress which occurs when harmful free radicals build up and surpass the number of antioxidants in the body. Oxidative stress is also the leading cause of chronic inflammation in the skin as it perpetuates collagen breakdown and slows skin cell function. Free radicals are electron-hungry molecules that attack proteins, causing them to lose shape. Specifically, when free radicals come in contact with collagen or elastin proteins, they steal electrons, changing the proteins’ shape, stripping them of their ability to serve their purpose. What purpose is that? To keep skin looking lively, strong, and dare I say… from drooping!
Offering a CoQ10 capsule or softgel will open your customers’ eyes to a whole new world of skin satisfaction. Protecting membranes of mitochondria and regenerating other antioxidants such as vitamin C and E, coenzyme Q10 can internally help keep skin young and refreshed. Your customers’ skin is exposed to environmental factors like UV rays, pollution, smoking and poor diet that lead to dry and thinning skin. Be the brand people need to help boost their antioxidant count and overall happiness when they look in the mirror and smile at what they see.
