Many skin care companies take pride in their own ability as a trend-setter and that’s no different from the skin care industry. Studies are being conducted regularly especially in the anti-aging field and we are witnessing the birth of many wrinkle miracles.

The last years the fight against aging has not only intensified but also bold statements like “erase years off your face” and “stop time” started to seduce the consumer’s eyes. From CoenzymeQ10, to AHAs and other “Botox”-like ingredients all the light have been recently focusing on Idebenone.

Although Idebenone is not a newbie in the scientific world, it has been used as a pharmaceutical agent since XXXX it is considered a recent breakthrough in the skincare market because of its wrinkle-fighting and, as stated byWebMD, idebenone protects a variety of cells from oxidative damage making it an effective anti-oxidant.

It all started in 70s-80s when researchers studied the potential therapeutic effects of Coenzyme Q10. Wanting to maximize its benefits they began testing its compounds and derivatives and found that idebenone had outstanding qualities in terms of antioxidant properties.

SmartSkincare states that Idebenone is similar in Structure with CoQ10, it is an antioxidant and it can replace CoQ10 in the process of cellular energy production. Although in normal conditions Idebenone and CoQ10 have similar properties at low oxygen concentrations CoQ10 may act like a free radical whereas Idebenone is a strong anti-oxidant even in these conditions.

Applied Topically, idebenone has shown anti-aging and anti-inflammatory effects of sun-damaged skin. The results were measured by a visible decrease of wrinkles and the reduction of collagen production. (McDaniel D, et al. Clinical efficacy assessment in photodamaged skin of 0.5% and 1.0% idebenone. J Cosmet Dermatol2005;4(3):167-73).
