Use facial products with antioxidants from Goldfaden, MitoQ, & Lumene to protect your skin from dryness, age spots and premature aging. Comprised of vitamins, amino acids and natural ingredients like grapeseed extract, antioxidants act as barriers against free-radical damage which causes skin dryness, age spots and prematurely ages skin.
Produced by the human body, CoQ (Coenzyme Q-10), one of the newest antioxidants on the scene keeps our cells functioning in tip top condition, all the while decreasing as we age, but when used in skin care products, help regenerate skin cells.

When MitoQ is used as directed over a period of 30 days, it’s continually absorbed into the skin, gradually restoring collagen and elastin levels so skin appears youthful. For all skin types.
