MitoQ® Celebrates Partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc®.

05/17/2013

During the month of October 2013, MitoQ® will donate 15% of all proceeds to one of the leading national education and support organizations, the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early detection and to provide mammograms for those in need. This includes increasing awareness through education, providing diagnostic breast care services for those in need, supporting breast cancer research programs, and providing nurturing support services.

 

What is MitoQ®

MitoQ® is a new anti-aging face cream proven to be the most potent antioxidant on the market to date. Officially launched in the United States in spring 2013, MitoQ® has been challenging the international skin care industry with a new level of efficacy.   It is the only topical cream proven to deliver ubiquinone to mitochondria at levels shown to have an immense effect in rejuvenating the cells, encouraging the natural production of collagen and elastin and leaving skin looking radiant with a lit-from-within glow.

 

Why it’s different

The MitoQ® molecule, mitoquinol, the key ingredient in the MitoQ® facial cream, is a recognized and patented invention that is proven to penetrate the mitochondria and is known to be 1,000x more potent than CoQ (a molecule used in the world’s best anti-aging products). MitoQ® is the result of over ten years of research and development. It is the work of Dr Michael Murphy, Mitochondrial Biology Unit, Cambridge and Professor Rob Smith Chemistry Department, Otago University, New Zealand. In a cutting-edge development a unique electrostatic penetration system is used to deliver antioxidant to the cells mitochondria. Neutralizing free radicals where they are produced and therefore stopping the skin aging process and healing prior damage.
