Swanson Coq10 Cream Review: Does it work?
Skin aging is the product of many factors, but more importantly due to the natural aging curve which your body naturally follows. What anti-aging products are aiming to do is to extend this aging curve a little over to your 40s or 50s or possibly even beyond. However, since many factors like lifestyle choices and habits also affect how and when you age, any positive modification in these areas will also significantly affect your skin.
Product Description, Manufacturer’s Information, and Price Details
Coenzyme Q10, also known as Ubiquinone, is an antioxidant naturally found and produced by your skin but, like other skin precursors such as collagen and elastin, are produced by your skin cells in much lesser amounts as you age. With lesser amounts of CoQ10 in your skin, your skin becomes more vulnerable to damage and, as such, also more prone to the development of signs of skin aging.
Claimed 97% natural, the Swanson CoQ10 did not seem to have any more improvements to give, except recently, it has been reformulated with the same beneficial ingredients that also include Vitamins A, C and E, hyaluronic acid and sodium PCA but, minus the potentially health hazardous parabens.
Swanson CoQ10 is cheapest at $6 from the product manufacturer’s website, and can go as high as a little over than $10 on reseller sites.
Primary ingredients include:
- Coenzyme Q10, helps replenish the skin’s diminishing levels of this powerful antioxidant, effectively protecting skin from free radical damage, and supporting higher production levels of collagen and elastin
- Hyaluronic acid, ups your aging skin’s decreasing levels of this molecule, which in effect, also ups your skin’s moisture levels and therefore improving skin elasticity
- Sodium PCA, improves your skin’s ability to hold moisture and better lock it in

As we age the composition, texture and appearance of our skin changes. Signs of skin aging include wrinkles, fine lines, loss of moisture, uneven tone, and dull, tired-looking skin. There are countless anti-wrinkle creams on the market promising to make skin look and feel younger. Many anti-wrinkle creams promise everything short of a facelift or to provide the much sought after "fountain of youth". In reality most are just moisturizers marketed as anti-aging products.
