Skin’s Own Beauty Secrets

Skin care products with ingredients similar to skin’s own, are said to have the advantage of high tolerability and effectiveness. NIVEA reveals skin’s own beauty secrets and explains their natural function.

Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10’s two most important functions in skin are the responsibility for the skin’s energy supply and the protection of the skin cells from damage. By the loss of Q10 through the process of aging, skin cells have less power. The result of this, in combination with other influences, is sagging skin and wrinkles that appear on the skin surface. Weakened skin cells are also prone to react more sensitively to stress, reducing their capacity to regenerate – which in turn also causes the skin to age faster. 

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is found in our entire body. However, within skin it plays an especially important role. About half the amount of all individuals’ hyaluronic acid is found in the skin. The gel-like molecule is known for its ability to bind and hold water: it can hold about a thousand times its own weight in water. Like a water balloon, it thus acts as a space filler and a cushioning agent in our skin and caters for skin hydration and elasticity. During the process of aging, the amount of hyaluronic acid in skin declines, causing our skin to age and wrinkle. 


Creatine is formed naturally in our body (from amino acids). Alongside Q10, creatine acts as another energy booster within the skin. It also plays a crucial role in the body’s energy metabolism, accumulating energy and releasing it, right when and where needed. As an energy supplier, it is highly important for many cell functions. 

Helping the skin to help itself

In summary, in great parts skin aging is caused by stress and reduced functions within the skin itself. Environmental stressors can influence the onset of wrinkles and lead to premature skin aging. Inaccurate processes of the skin producing aggressive substances can also be a trigger for the formation of wrinkles. Skin care products that combine skin’s own ingredients can help to support our skin in a very natural way. 

The magic of Pearls

The new NIVEA Q10plus ANTI-WRINKLE Serum Pearls combine the three skin’s own substances: namely Q10, hyaluronic acid, and creatine in an innovative way. The high concentration of Q10 pearls are surrounding by moisturizing gel. Prior to application, the pearls burst inside the nozzle to form a homogenous serum that combines with the moisturizing gel containing hyaluronic acid and creatine. In this way, the serum’s anti-wrinkle power is freshly activated right before every use to effectively reduce the look of wrinkles – for a younger looking skin.
