Why is the MitoQ® skincare range different from other cosmeceutical skincare ranges?
MitoQ® is the brand name of this highly active, yet gentle cosmeceutical skin care range, and the name of the proprietary and patented ingredient MitoQ® included in all its skincare products. MitoQ® is the worlds first mitochondrial-targeted antioxidant, with 39 patents and patents pending. MitoQ® works to re-program skin cells to act as if they were younger, leaving your skin feeling softer and looking firmer.
Combining MitoQ® with other innovative and clinically-proven actives at recommended levels, the MitoQ® skincare range has been developed to target multiple skin concerns.
What is the MitoQ® ingredient?
MitoQ® is the worlds first mitochondrial-targeted antioxidant. Until its discovery, no-one had been able to restore the mitochondrial antioxidant defense system in a meaningful way to deliver health-giving energy to your cells and slow the aging process. Research has shown that the symptoms of aging, including the visible and invisible effects on the skin, are linked to a decline in mitochondrial function.
How do the rest of the ingredients in the skincare work to make this a highly effective range?
Each skincare product in our range is designed to provide instant visible results as well as long term effects from the power of the MitoQ® ingredient. In the development of the MitoQ® cosmeceutical products, we have partnered with Sederma, a provider of premium active cosmetic ingredients, to provide targeted actives to amplify the results and provide complimentary benefits to the MitoQ® molecule. Our products focus on desired skin improvements such as reducing the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation and uneven skin tone.
What causes aging of the skin?
Skin aging starts when our cells no longer have the energy to produce sufficient collagen and elastin, or the energy to fight environmental elements. Additionally, as the mitochondrias natural oxidant system declines, free radicals (unstable molecules) start to leak into cells causing cell damage and the visible signs of aging on the skin.
Can MitoQ® be used on all skin types?
Yes, MitoQ® can be used on all skin types, including hypersensitive skin. We start from the premise of protecting the skin you have, so formulations are free from unnecessary irritants such as parabens, sulphates, betaines, DEA, TEA, artificial colours and fragrances.
Can I use MitoQ® with my other skincare products?
Yes, MitoQ® can be used alone or alongside your other skincare products. It can replace your usual moisturizers or serums, but it will also work with your other products for extra effect.
If I take MitoQ® Skin Support Complex, should I be using the MitoQ Skincare Range?
MitoQ® Skin Support Complex is designed to support optimal skin health and beauty from the inside as the ultimate compliment to your regular skin care regimen. Ideally, we recommend its use alongside the MitoQ Skincare Range for the best possible results for you and your skin.
Are your products natural?
MitoQ® skincare is designed to support the skin naturally so formulations are free from unnecessary irritants such as parabens, sulfates, betaines, DEA, TEA, artificial colors and fragrances.
When should I see results?
The MitoQ®s skincare range has been designed to get visible effects within a few days of regular use due to the inclusion of clinically proven active ingredients designed to work synergistically with MitoQ®. In up to 6 weeks you will see the additional benefits of the MitoQ® ingredient contributing to make your skin look more hydrated, smoother, have a more even skin tone and look more youthful.
What does the product smell like?
Nothing specific but the sum of its parts. Therefore, you may detect a hint of chamomile, rosemary and almonds. There is no added fragrance.
Why are all the products yellow?
The products are all yellow due to the color of the patented active ingredient MitoQ®.
Why are the MitoQ® creams and serums similar texture?
The type of active ingredients used in serums determine what the end texture of the serum will be. For example, some need to be protected in an oily base, others in watery base, and in the case of MitoQ®, the protection of its key ingredients ensures the MitoQ® serum results in a lightweight cream serum.
Are the MitoQ® products tested on animals?
No, MitoQ® does not test any of its products on animals.
Do the MitoQ® skincare products offer sun protection?
MitoQ® can help to protect your skin from the after-effects of infra-red and ultraviolet (UV) light damage, but it is not a sunscreen. The products can be used in combination with all UV sun blocks to give you broad-spectrum protection from the effects of sun exposure.
If you are on a budget, what products should you buy first?
The products are designed to be used together or you can select the one that you feel will address your concerns and use it with your other skincare products.
