Coenzyme Q10 is a crucial anti-aging nutrient for healthy skin.
How to use it
Beginner: Add 1 tube in 4 oz of your favorite base cream.
Advanced: This ingredient is recommended for use at up to 0.5% in formulations. Add this ingredient to the heated oil phase of an emulsion. This ingredient can be added to a base cream or oil-based serum, but it can require some heating to get a solution this is free of flecks. Heat the powder in oil until the solution is free of specks (about 40C) before adding to a base cream or serum.
This strongly colored powder can stain the skin when used at higher concentrations, so we recommend testing the finished product on the skin before first use. Store in a cool, dark location.
