Idebenone is the analogue of CoQ10, it has powerful antioxidant properties resulting in less cell and tissue damages.

About Antioxidants and Environmental Protection Factor (EPF)

Only antioxidants can scavenge free radicals to help prevent premature aging of skin. EPF (Environmental Protection Factor) is the certification standard to assess the topical protection capacity of antioxidants to protect the skin from free radical mediated environmental oxidative stress.

How is Ultra V patented Idebenone unique?

  • Idebenone in its original state is susceptible to water, light, oxygen and precipitates easily, making it difficult to be used in cosmetic products.
  • After 1.5 years of research Ultra V formulated the stable patented form of Idebenone.

Scientific study published in the
American Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology:

  • In 2005, Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology using a new indicator called EPF (Environmental Protection Factor) conducted a test in 5 steps to measure the antioxidant abilities of Idebenone.
  • Women of the age 30-65, who tried Idebenone twice a day for 6 weeks, all report their dry, rough skin became much smoother, suppler and well moisturized.
  • At the end of this test Idebenone reached 95 EPF points of 100 (i.e. the highest rating of all antioxidants tested) - followed Vitamin C, Vitamin E, CoQ10, Kinetin, and Alpha-Lipoic Acid.
