you for allowing us the opportunity to introduce Zone
Cosmetics to you. The product is a break through cosmeceutical,
which has been designed to meet the requirements of
sun damaged and prematurely ageing skin.
research has shown us that the major contributing factor
to premature ageing is free radical damage. Free radicals
or reactive oxygen species (ROS) are formed in skin
cells when we expose ourselves to sun, pollution, smoking
etc. These free radicals are composed of oxygen with
an unpaired electron – they are constantly searching
to gain another electron in order to become stable.
They steal from balanced molecules and start a chain
reaction that damages cell membranes, collagen and DNA.
body has a protection from this damage in the form of
anti oxidants that are capable of losing an electron
in order to defend healthy cells from this free radical
onslaught. Natural occurring anti oxidants includes
Vitamins A, C, E and Co Enzyme Q10. The chain reaction
started by free radicals easily destroys and denatures
these precious vitamins. Our best weapon against this
is to replace lost vitamins by increasing our raw fruit
and vegetable intake and taking a multivitamin supplement.
When it comes to our skin it is believed that by applying
anti oxidants at the correct concentrations we bolster
skin cells leaving them better protected. Topically
applied at optimum levels the following anti oxidants
have been proven effective: Vitamins A, C, E and Co
Recent in vivo testing has shown that Co Enzyme Q 10

IS CO ENZYME Q10 AND WHAT IS ITS FUNCTION?
Co Enzyme Q10 – Q denotes the Quinone family,
10 is the number of
isoprenoid units on its side chain.
2. Co Enzyme Q10 is a vitamin like substance and a cofactor
of at least 3 mitochondrial enzymes, essential for the
production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) –‘high
3. Co Enzyme Q10 is an integral part of the membranes
of mitochondria where it is involved in this production
of ATP: the basic energy-producing molecule of the cell.
Here it helps mitochondrial enzymes convert dietary
nutrients to energy – in other words without it
- the food we eat cannot be converted to energy for
4. Co Enzyme Q10 is a vital nutrient necessary for the
life and function of each and every cell in our body
– without it we cannot survive.
5. Co Enzyme Q10 quenches free radicals generated in
this energy making process.
6. Co Enzyme Q10 keeps the mitochondrial membrane intact.
DO WE GET CO ENZYME Q10?
Enzyme Q10 is found throughout the body in all cell
membranes and is therefore known as Ubiquinone. A deficiency
results from poor dietary intake or excessive utilization
by the body. Biosynthesis of Q10 in the body requires
at least 7 vitamins and as we age the ability to produce
Network anti oxidants work together to regenerate and
recycle one another – they are Gluthathione, L-Carnitine,
CO Enzyme Q10, Beta Carotene, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamins
C and E. If an anti oxidant like Vitamin E is attacked
by a free radical it is unable to function unless it
is recycled - Co Enzyme Q 10 can recycle it.
Q10 declines with age we need to replace it daily. Topically
applied Q10 is proven to reach the dermis; here it suppresses
the enzyme collagenase (which is stimulated by UV exposure)
and results in less collagen damage and the reduction
of wrinkle depth.
COSMETICS AND CO ENZYME Q10
and Skin Care Therapists have for some time been searching
for an effective treatment incorporating Co Enzyme Q10.
Dermasure recognized this need for an intensive, active
and effective anti oxidant treatment range. They have
managed to produce a day and night cream with the right
percentage of the active ingredients Co Enzyme Q10 and
network anti oxidants. The high concentration levels
of these anti oxidant ingredients ensure maximum penetration
of actives yet skin irritation is minimised due to the
stable non- irritating base.
Zone has proved to be very effective when used in conjunction
with Microdermabrasion, Ultra Sound and IPL Laser Therapy.
Zone is particularly effective in preparing the skin
prior to any of the above treatments and cosmetic surgery.
The end result improvement is more significant. Zone
is currently busy with a trial on post acne scarring,
pigmentation and stretch marks combining Zone Night
cream with microdermabrasion and ultrasound therapy.
Zone contains network anti oxidants in the correct effective
concentrations as studies have shown that Co Enzyme
Q10 and anti oxidants help to repair and rejuvenate
the skin however they will only show significant differences
when used at certain concentrations. Zone Cosmetics
– the next generation skin care - has used medical
science to incorporate all these findings into a treatment
that gives you the latest in skin care and repair for
We are confident that our product is not just another
because it has the scientific backing to substantiate
our claims. It makes skin sense for you to use proven
active skin care cosmetics.
