Suitable for all skin types

Use in the morning

This hydrating cream works to help protect the skin from environmental aggressors including pollution, while moisturizing and rehydrating so your skin instantly feels comforted, and looks radiant and dewy.

Over time MitoQ®, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and Matrixyl® synthe’6®, a powerful anti–wrinkle peptide, work to help restructure and rebuild skin essentials so it becomes smoother, plumper and firmer, diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles to reveal a new, younger looking you.

Use in the morning after cleansing and applying the MitoQ® Cellular Radiance Protecting Serum. Pump a small amount to your hand and warm in the fingertips. Press gently to your face, neck and décolletage.

- FAQ -

My MitoQ® cream or serum container is not pumping – what could be the reason?

The container has a locking system on the top to prevent any unwanted release of product especially when travelling (right to open, left to close).  Check that the silver rotating ring on the top has not been put into the lock position.

What is the texture of the MitoQ® Active Protection Daily Defense Cream?

It is a midweight cream.

 What specific improvements should I see from this MitoQ® Cream?

This hydrating cream works to help protect the skin from environmental aggressors, including pollution; whilst moisturizing and rehydrating so your skin instantly feels comforted and look radiant and dewy.  The active ingredients work to help restructure and rebuild skin essentials leaving it smoother, plumper and firmer, and diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles to reveal a new, younger-looking you.

 How does the MitoQ® AM cream differ from the MitoQ® PM cream?

Formulated with actives such as Hyaluronic acid and Niacinamide. the MitoQ® AM Cream is designed to protect your skin from pollution and environmental aggressors, leaving it smooth and radiant. The MitoQ® PM Cream revitalizes, brightens and restructures your skin with ingredients such as Matrixyl Synthe’6 and active multivitamins. Both creams contain the same amount of MitoQ®.

Why is the MitoQ® skincare range different from other cosmeceutical skincare ranges?

MitoQ® is the brand name of this highly active, yet gentle cosmeceutical skin care range, and the name of the proprietary and patented ingredient MitoQ® included in all its skincare products.  MitoQ® is the world’s first mitochondrial-targeted antioxidant, with 39 patents and patents pending. MitoQ® works to re-program skin cells to act as if they were younger, leaving your skin feeling softer and looking firmer. 

 Combining MitoQ® with other innovative and clinically-proven actives at recommended levels, the MitoQ® skincare range has been developed to target multiple skin concerns.

 What is the MitoQ® ingredient?

MitoQ® is the world’s first mitochondrial-targeted antioxidant. Until its discovery, no-one had been able to restore the mitochondrial antioxidant defense system in a meaningful way to deliver health-giving energy to your cells and slow the aging process. Research has shown that the symptoms of aging, including the visible and invisible effects on the skin, are linked to a decline in mitochondrial function.

 How do the rest of the ingredients in the skincare work to make this a highly effective range?

Each skincare product in our range is designed to provide instant visible results as well as long term effects from the power of the MitoQ® ingredient.  In the development of the MitoQ® cosmeceutical products, we have partnered with Sederma, a provider of premium active cosmetic ingredients, to provide targeted actives to amplify the results and provide complimentary benefits to the MitoQ® molecule. Our products focus on desired skin improvements such as reducing the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation and uneven skin tone.

 What causes aging of the skin?

Skin aging starts when our cells no longer have the energy to produce sufficient collagen and elastin, or the energy to fight environmental elements.  Additionally, as the mitochondria’s natural oxidant system declines, free radicals (unstable molecules) start to leak into cells causing cell damage and the visible signs of aging on the skin.

 Can MitoQ® be used on all skin types?

Yes, MitoQ® can be used on all skin types, including hypersensitive skin. We start from the premise of protecting the skin you have, so formulations are free from unnecessary irritants such as parabens, sulphates, betaines, DEA, TEA, artificial colours and fragrances.

 Can I use MitoQ® with my other skincare products?

Yes, MitoQ® can be used alone or alongside your other skincare products. It can replace your usual moisturizers or serums, but it will also work with your other products for extra effect.

 If I take MitoQ® Skin Support Complex, should I be using the MitoQ Skincare Range?

MitoQ® Skin Support Complex is designed to support optimal skin health and beauty from the inside as the ultimate compliment to your regular skin care regimen. Ideally, we recommend its use alongside the MitoQ Skincare Range for the best possible results for you and your skin.

 Are your products natural?

MitoQ® skincare is designed to support the skin naturally so formulations are free from unnecessary irritants such as parabens, sulfates, betaines, DEA, TEA, artificial colors and fragrances.

 When should I see results?

The MitoQ®’s skincare range has been designed to get visible effects within a few days of regular use due to the inclusion of clinically proven active ingredients designed to work synergistically with MitoQ®.  In up to 6 weeks you will see the additional benefits of the MitoQ® ingredient contributing to make your skin look more hydrated, smoother, have a more even skin tone and look more youthful.

 What does the product smell like?

Nothing specific but the sum of its parts. Therefore, you may detect a hint of chamomile, rosemary and almonds.  There is no added fragrance.

 Why are all the products yellow?

The products are all yellow due to the color of the patented active ingredient MitoQ®.

 Why are the MitoQ® creams and serums similar texture?

The type of active ingredients used in serums determine what the end texture of the serum will be.  For example, some need to be protected in an oily base, others in watery base, and in the case of MitoQ®, the protection of its key ingredients ensures the MitoQ® serum results in a lightweight cream serum.

 Are the MitoQ® products tested on animals?

No, MitoQ® does not test any of its products on animals.

 Do the MitoQ® skincare products offer sun protection?

MitoQ® can help to protect your skin from the after-effects of infra-red and ultraviolet (UV) light damage, but it is not a sunscreen. The products can be used in combination with all UV sun blocks to give you broad-spectrum protection from the effects of sun exposure.

 If you are on a budget, what products should you buy first?

The products are designed to be used together or you can select the one that you feel will address your concerns and use it with your other skincare products.

 How long would I expect a MitoQ® skincare product to last?

A MitoQ® skincare product is expected to last between 8 and 10 weeks. 

Does MitoQ® guarantee their products?

MitoQ® is so confident in their products that if, after using MitoQ® skincare for 3 months, and you are not satisfied for any reason you can get a 100% refund within 4 months of the date of purchase.

v good but needs sunscreen!

Reviewed on 11/08/2017
Really like the moisturizers. Have been using the serum for years. BUT would like the day cream to include a sunscreen as this is always my priority when buying a day cream.

My skin feels beautifully soft

B.M, New Zealand
Reviewed on 6/04/2017
In my early 50's I started to notice changes in my facial skin. Dark rings under my eyes, redness over my cheekbone areas and fine lines becoming more evident. I was using a moisturiser with average results. I was fortunate to receive a sample of MitoQ cream serum. It is now over two years since I started using the MitoQ cream serum. The improvement I have noticed in my skin over this time has been pleasing, the dark circles under my eyes have significantly reduced, and the redness over my cheek bones is now minimal. Recently MitoQ added a new skin care range. I have been using the new range for over a month. Whilst the new range is a two step process the benefits to me have been worthwhile. A minimal about of cream goes a long way. I wear no makeup during the day, just the serum and my skin feels beautifully soft, I feel that there is a new smoothness to it also. Prior to starting to use the MitoQ I had considered that during the day it may have been time to start using a light foundation to cover the redness on my cheeks, since MitoQ and the reduction of the redness I have not had to consider this option again.

Worthwhile to note for travelers who read my feedback I recently took an overseas trip involving some lengthy flights. Previously on long flights the drying affect of the cabin on my face has been quite noticeable. I noticed without question on my most recent flight how soft my skin remained. I feel that whilst I kept my body hydrated drinking plenty of water, the MitoQ took care of my face for me.

I'm feeling more confident and looking more youthful thanks to MitoQ!

TL, Auckland
Reviewed on 27/03/2017
Since using the MitoQ morning and night regime I have noticed a significant improvement in my fine lines and skin tone. The fine lines around my eyes and mouth have visibly reduced and softened. My skin tone is brighter with more clarity and the brown pigment is fading, my skin feels smoother and tighter after applying.

Initially I was worried that applying two products would clog up my skin and leave it greasy, but I was pleasantly surprised at how light and silky the creams are and leave the skin feeling refreshed and not greasy at all. It is so easy to use and a tiny amount goes a long way making it a lot more economical than my previous skin care range.

Overall I am highly impressed with MitoQ and have had so many positive comments from friends and even my husband (that's saying something!) how my skin is glowing and looking radiant. I'm feeling more confident and looking more youthful thanks to MitoQ!

Face feel firmer and plump/elastic.

MN, New Zealand
Reviewed on 24/03/2017
I am loving the MitoQ products! I have been using these new intensive versions of the product for nearly 2 months now and already I have noticed that my skin is significantly smoother, my pores have visibly reduced in size and therefore I seem to have less breakouts (even at 40+ years young I was still getting blackheads and other acne now then). It also feels firmer like its more plump/elastic. Cant wait to see what happens over 6 months
