Review Iconic Elements Nightcream

Ubiquinone (co-enzym Q10)

Correcting these processes requires energy. Ubiquinone (coenzyme Q10) increases cellular energy metabolism and has an anti-oxidant effect. Coenzyme Q10 is found in all body cells and is an energy former. For tissue and organs, it is vital. As we age, the production of Coenzyme Q10 is less in our organs and tissues. A reduced concentration of Coenzyme Q10 has also been demonstrated in the epidermis and an increased energy metabolism was observed after application to the skin.

Coenzyme Q10 and the skin

Jojoba oil

Jojoba contains high concentration of vitamin E and is indispensable for skin care. Due to its anti-inflammatory and hypoallergenic activity, it can help limit free radical damage and reduce irritation and redness. Jojoba oil has a chemical similarity to human sebum (oil produced by the skin). It also provides a non-greasy film on the surface of the skin, which retains moisture and balances the overproduction of sebum.

Macademia Integrifolia

Macadamia oil, due to its high content of oleic and linoleic acids, helps keep the skin hydrated. Both are believed to have anti-inflammatory effects and help to reduce trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) and improve the skin barrier.

Ask your dermatologist

What is the difference between a day cream and a night cream? The most obvious difference is the lack of a UV sun filter (UVA or UVB) in a night cream. A more subtle reason is the greasy feeling. A day cream may feel a bit more and “thicker” on the skin than a night cream. A “thicker” cream provides more protection & hydration against dehydration and daily weather conditions.
