Coenzyme Q10

Description: Vitamin-like molecule (ubiquinone, ubidecarenone) obtained from plant material. Q10 is encapsulated in nano-sized liposomes consisting of a phospholipid double nano-emulsion with vitamin E and vitamin C (ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate) to maintain activity, enhance skin penetration and potency. Accompanying vitamin E and vitamin C are needed to activate coenzyme to its active state. The liposomes have an average particle size of about 50nm. Can be easily incorporated into aqueous formulas. Activity 6.8-7.3% Q10 (liposome-encapsulation largely reduces the amount of Q10 required for effectiveness as compared to non-encapsulated pure Q10). Preserved with 0.1% sodium benzoate. Orange-opaque liquid, faint odor.
