Evaluation of Antioxidative Activity between CoQ10-Nanostructured Lipid Carrier and CoQ10 Cosmetic


Article Preview

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a poorly water-soluble active ingredient with intrinsic chemical instability, but holds strongly antioxidative capacity. The CoQ10-NLC aqueous dispersion has been prepared, the antioxidative activity between CoQ10-NLC and CoQ10 cosmetic have been investigated, and several employed methods such as scavenging efficiency on DPPH radical and inhibition of superoxide anion and hydroxyl radical generation illustrated its potentially antioxidative activity. The test results displayed that CoQ10-NLC aqueous dispersion indicated higher antioxidative activity than commercially available CoQ10 cosmetic.
