Research carried out by leading scientists has revealed that a new skincream containing CoQ10, a powerful natural antioxidant does reduce visible signs of ageing, including wrinkles, age spots and sun damage.

The trial, which took place at The London Dermatology Centre involved patients, both male and female, aged between 32 and 48.

A Visia scan, to detect feature count of wrinkles, UV spots, red areas, texture, pores and brown spots, was performed on patients before and after using the cream.

The patients then used the MitoQ cream daily for eight weeks, and then returned to the clinic for a final scan.

The research reveals  that in just eight weeks, 69% saw a reduction in red areas. Also, 62% of the trial patients saw a reduction in wrinkles and an improvement in skin texture. The Visia scan results also suggested that 46% saw a reduction in UV spots. The visia data was then analysed by anti-ageing specialist, Dr Sherif Elwakil and dermatologist, Dr Sunil Chopra.

MitoQ is the invention of Dr Michael Murphy from Cambridge University and Professor Robin Smith from New Zealand’s University of Otago. The two scientists were first looking into a cure for a liver disease when together they designed an electrostatic penetration systemthat specifically targeted mitochondria to deliver Q, the active component of the body’s own organic antioxidant system CoQ, directly into cells at a much higher rate than what was previously possible.

Research in credible scientific journals including Trends in Pharmacological Sciences and Annals of the New York Academy of Science support the scientic findings of the two doctors in respect of MitoQ.
