Babor Mimical Control Plus Q10
Babor Mimical Control Plus Q10 Overview
Babor Mimical Control Plus Q10 is yet another anti-wrinkle cream threatening to dethrone Botox as the ultimate, instant wrinkle-smoothing treatment. The current version is an updated version of a previous formula but that now includes Coenzyme Q10, and works using a series of proteins and a botanical extract.
The product info is all on one page, and the sales blurb partially discusses what causes the onset of wrinkles. Unfortunately the site offers neither any info on clinical trials nor any testimonials, and there are no before/after photos to indicate what results are to be expected, and after how long.
The cream was first manufactured in 2006, and is made by Florida-based company Babor Institut, which can be contacted by email, mail or phone. The company also offers a range of luxury spa treatments and a skin care line exclusively for men.
Babor Mimical Control Plus Q10 – Product Description
The cream is designed to work over a 24-hour period, and it’s recommended that it be used twice daily. According to the site, it has a tropical scent formulated with passion fruit, melon, pineapple and grapefruit. The main active ingredient is Coenzyme Q10, a naturally-occurring enzyme that acts as a powerful antioxidant and promotes skin cell regeneration. The cream also has a protein complex that mimics the effects of Botox by relaxing muscle contractions and avoiding the appearance of fine lines in the same way in which youthful skin does.
Also present in the cream is Helichrysum italicum (curry plant) extract, which smoothes fine lines by relaxing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles, and also counters the loss of skin elasticity. In addition, the formula also contains soothing botanical extracts such as macadamia, avocado and sesame oils, all of which provide moisturizing, aromatherapeutic properties (as does the aforementioned scent). Most of the info regarding the key ingredients is patchy at beast, and veers into “cut-and-paste” territory, going off topic instead of linking the properties of the ingredient to the cosmetic benefits of the cream. Aside from this, though, there is no complete list of ingredients.
A single 50ml jar costs $78, and can be bought from the official site, which ships within one business day. This price qualifies for free shipping, but the site only offers a returns policy on unused items.

Babor Mimical Control Plus Q10 – The Bottomline
Babor’s Mimical Control Q10 Plus is among a handful of Botox alternatives that claim to offer instantly younger-looking skin, but with a lack of offline availability and absolutely no before/after photos or testimonials, there’s little to recommend. Its sister product, Babor Selection Ultimate Care Cream, at least has champagne yeast, but aside from Mimical Control Q10 Plus’ pleasant tropical scent, there’s little to differentiate it from other Botox alternatives in the marketplace.
