Trilogy CoQ10 Booster Oil first caught my attention at a press day last year and I’ve kept an eye out for its launch since then. The reason for my interest is that CoQ10 is a skincare ingredient that shows lots of promise but is actually quite hard to find in mid to premium range products (though I expect that is going to change).
CoQ10 is a naturally occurring substance found in cells. It helps produce energy and protect cells from oxidative stress. Levels decline as we age but, applied topically, it can help prevent collagen breakdown and stimulate collagen production.
Also present in CoQ10 Booster Oil is Glycablend, a fusion that includes Pomegranate Seed Oil, Blueberry Seed Oil, Strawberry Seed Oil and Chia Seed Oil. The purpose of this blend is to combat glycation, which is a process where glucose attaches to collagen and elastin molecules and causes them to loose their suppleness. This results in the general ageing of the skin such as wrinkles and, most importantly in my book, a compromised skin barrier.
If all that wasn’t enough, Tamanu, Macadamia and Black Caraway Seed oils are also in the mix. Here’s the full list of ingredients…
Macadamia ternifolia seed oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Helianthus annuus seed oil, Salvia Hispanica (Chia) Seed Oil, Nigella sativa, Calophyllum Tacamahaca (Tamanu) Seed Oil, Ubiquinone, Euterpe Oleracea fruit oil (and) Tocopherol, Vaccinium Angustifolia (Blueberry) Seed Oil, Fragaria Vesca (strawberry) Seed Oil, Punica Granatum (pomegranate) Seed Oil, citral, geraniol, citronellol, limonene, linalool.
The oil itself is quite rich so only a few drops are needed. It’s perfect for giving yourself a quick facial massage and it’s actually hard to use without resisting the temptation to do this. I really like the scent – kind of aromatherapyish with a light element of spice to it.
