Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance similar to a vitamin. It is found in every cell of the body. Your body makes CoQ10, and your cells use it to produce energy and for cell growth and maintenance. It also functions as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent.
It is very useful to promote healing and tissue repair post treatment, as well as for damage from sun exposure, injury or irritation.
Copper Peptides - small fragments of proteins combined with copper can enhance skin regeneration and the healing of wounds. They are included in many anti-aging products for their ability to increase skin elasticity and firmness. Because copper is a toxic metal, avoid using it on the skin in any form except those that contain peptides that bind with the metal.
The Copper Peptide Complex fights aging by its firming & tightening benefits and diminishes the appearance of lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen synthesis. Ceramides absorb moisture and Algae contributes to a more even skin tone.
