Sebamed Q10 Protection Reviews will be shared and discussed in this review article alongside other product features or details you should know before purchasing.

Other than that, it’s a nice emollient that gives a smooth and soft appearance to the skin.

Sebamed q10 protection reviews

Good old water, aka H2O. The most common skincare ingredient of all. You can usually find it right in the very first spot of the ingredient list, meaning it’s the biggest thing out of all the stuff that makes up the product.

It’s mainly a solvent for ingredients that do not like to dissolve in oils but rather in water.

Once inside the skin, it hydrates, but not from the outside – putting pure water on the skin (hello long baths!) is drying.

One more thing: the water used in cosmetics is purified and deionized (it means that almost all of the mineral ions inside it is removed). Like this, the products can stay more stable over time.

An often used emollient with a light and silky feel. It's very mild to both skin and eyes and spreads nicely and easily. It's often used in sunscreens as it's also an excellent solvent for sunscreen agents.

An oily kind of ingredient that can magically blend with water all by itself. This is called self-emulsifying and SE in its name stands for that.

The difference between "normal" Glyceryl Stearate and this guy is that the SE grade contains a small amount of water-loving soap molecules, such as sodium stearate. This increases Glyceryl Stearate's affinity for water and gives it stronger emulsifying abilities.

Other than that, it’s a nice emollient that gives a smooth and soft appearance to the skin.

The emollient plant oil that comes from almonds. Similar to other plant oils, it is loaded with skin-nourishing fatty acids (oleic acid – 55-86% and linoleic acid 7-35%) and contains several other skin goodies such as antioxidant vitamin E and vitamin B versions.

It's a nice, basic oil that is often used due to its great smoothing, softening and moisturizing properties. It's also particularly good at treating dry brittle nails (source).

An extremely common multitasker ingredient that gives your skin a nice soft feel (emollient) and gives body to creams and lotions. It also helps to stabilize oil-water mixes (emulsions), though it does not function as an emulsifier in itself. Its typical use level in most cream type formulas is 2-3%.

It’s a so-called fatty alcohol, a mix of cetyl and stearyl alcohol, other two emollient fatty alcohols. Though chemically speaking, it is alcohol (as in, it has an -OH group in its molecule), its properties are totally different from the properties of low molecular weight or drying alcohols such as denat. alcohol. Fatty alcohols have a long oil-soluble (and thus emollient) tail part that makes them absolutely non-drying and non-irritating and are totally ok for the skin.

It's a sweet tasting sugar substitute that helps your skin to hold onto water when used in cosmetic products. It also helps to thicken up products and give them a bit more slip.

Unless you live under a rock you must have heard about shea butter. It's probably the most hyped up natural butter in skincare today. It comes from the seeds of African Shea or Karite Trees and used as a magic moisturizer and emollient.

But it's not only a simple emollient, it regenerates and soothes the skin, protects it from external factors (such as UV rays or wind) and is also rich in antioxidants (among others vitamin A, E, F, quercetin and epigallocatechin gallate). If you are looking for rich emollient benefits + more, shea is hard to beat.

We don’t have description for this ingredient yet.

A water light oily liquid (aka ester) that has a light skin feeling and is often used to reduce tackiness and lighten the feel of heavier emollients. It's popular in sunscreens to "lighten up" oil soluble chemical UV filters.

It seems to us that squalane is in fashion and there is a reason for it. Chemically speaking, it is a saturated (no double bonds) hydrocarbon (a molecule consisting only of carbon and hydrogen), meaning that it's a nice and stable oily liquid with a long shelf life.

It occurs naturally in certain fish and plant oils (e.g. olive), and in the sebum (the oily stuff our skin produces) of the human skin. As f.c. puts it in his awesome blog post, squalane's main things are "emolliency, surface occlusion, and TEWL prevention all with extreme cosmetic elegance". In other words, it's a superb moisturizer that makes your skin nice and smooth, without being heavy or greasy.

Another advantage of squalane is that it is pretty much compatible with all skin types and skin conditions. It is excellent for acne-prone skin and safe to use even if you have fungi-related skin issues, like seborrhea or fungal acne.

The unsaturated (with double bonds) and hence less stable version of Squalane is Squalene, you can read about it here >>

It’s the most commonly used version of pure vitamin E in cosmetics. You can read all about the pure form here. This one is the so-called esterified version.

According to famous dermatologist, Leslie Baumann while tocopheryl acetate is more stable and has a longer shelf life, it’s also more poorly absorbed by the skin and may not have the same awesome photoprotective effects as pure Vit E.

A fatty alcohol (the non-drying type with a long oil loving chain of 22 carbon atoms) that is used to increase the viscosity of the formula and it also helps the oily and the watery parts to stay nicely mixed together (called emulsion stabilizing).

An easy-to-formulate, commonly used, nice to have ingredient that’s also called pro-vitamin B5. As you might guess from the “pro” part, it’s a precursor to vitamin B5 (whose fancy name is pantothenic acid).

Its main job in skincare products is to moisturise the skin. It’s a humectant meaning that it can help the skin to attract water and then hold onto it. There is also research showing that panthenol can help our skin to produce more lovely lipids that are important for a strong and healthy skin barrier.

Expand to read more

Another great thing about panthenol is that it has anti-inflammatory and skin protecting abilities. A study shows that it can reduce the irritation caused by less-nice other ingredients (e.g. fragrance, preservatives or chemical sunscreens) in the product.

Research also shows that it might be useful for wound healing as it promotes fibroblast (nice type of cells in our skin that produce skin-firming collagen) proliferation.

If that wasn’t enough panthenol is also useful in nail and hair care products. A study shows that a nail treatment liquide with 2% panthenol could effectively get into the nail and significantly increase the hydration of it.

As for the hair the hydration effect is also true there. Panthenol might make your hair softer, more elastic and helps to comb your hair more easily.

Thanks to Nivea, Q10 is a pretty well-known ingredient and the fame and Beiersdorf's (the parent company of Nivea) obsession with it are not for no reason. It's an antioxidant found naturally in human cells where it plays a big role in energy production.

In fact, it's so important for energy production that if taken as an oral supplement it has a caffeine-like effect and if taken at night you will probably not sleep very well (so you should take it in the morning). Q10 supplementation is not a bad idea: it not only gives you energy but research also shows that oral Q10 increases the Q10 level of the skin (of course, it decreases with age like pretty much every good thing in the skin) and may help to reduce wrinkles. If you are not for supplements, dietary sources include fish, spinach, and nuts.

As for skincare, Q10 comes in the form of a yellow, oil-soluble powder that's shown to absorb into the upper layer of the skin and act there like an awesome antioxidant. It not only has preventative effects but might also be able to reduce the depth of wrinkles, though 0.3% Q10 was used in the study that counts as really high (products containing that much should be very yellow!).

A sugar based emulsifier that's especially great for low viscosity lotions or even sprays. It's effective in small amounts, only 1-1.5% is needed to form an emulsion. The resulting cream or lotion has great cosmetic properties with good spreadability and an enhanced soft skin feel.

It's one of the most commonly used thickeners and emulsion stabilizers. If the product is too runny, a little xanthan gum will make it more gel-like. Used alone, it can make the formula sticky and it is a good team player so it is usually combined with other thickeners and so-called rheology modifiers (helper ingredients that adjust the flow and thus the feel of the formula). The typical use level of Xantha Gum is below 1%, it is usually in the 0.1-0.5% range.

Btw, Xanthan gum is all natural, a chain of sugar molecules (polysaccharide) produced from individual sugar molecules (glucose and sucrose) via fermentation. It’s approved by Ecocert and also used in the food industry (E415).

A little helper ingredient that is used to adjust the pH of the product. It also helps to keep products stay nice longer by neutralizing the metal ions in the formula (they usually come from water).

Exactly what it sounds: nice smelling stuff put into cosmetic products so that the end product also smells nice. Fragrance in the US and parfum in the EU is a generic term on the ingredient list that is made up of 30 to 50 chemicals on average (but it can have as much as 200 components!).

If you are someone who likes to know what you put on your face then fragrance is not your best friend – there's no way to know what’s really in it.

Expand to read more

Also, if your skin is sensitive, fragrance is again not your best friend. It’s the number one cause of contact allergy to cosmetics. It’s definitely a smart thing to avoid with sensitive skin (and fragrance of any type – natural is just as allergic as synthetic, if not worse!).

It's one of those things that help your cosmetics not to go wrong too soon, aka a preservative. It can be naturally found in fruits and teas but can also be made synthetically.

No matter the origin, in small amounts (up to 1%) it’s a nice, gentle preservative. Has to be combined with some other nice preservatives, like potassium sorbate to be broad spectrum enough.

Expand to read more

In high amounts, it can be a skin irritant, but don’t worry, it’s never used in high amounts.

It’s pretty much the current IT-preservative. It’s safe and gentle, but even more importantly, it’s not a feared-by-everyone-mostly-without-scientific-reason paraben.

It’s not something new: it was introduced around 1950 and today it can be used up to 1% worldwide. It can be found in nature – in green tea – but the version used in cosmetics is synthetic.

Expand to read more

Other than having a good safety profile and being quite gentle to the skin it has some other advantages too. It can be used in many types of formulations as it has great thermal stability (can be heated up to 85°C) and works on a wide range of pH levels (ph 3-10).

It’s often used together with ethylhexylglycerin as it nicely improves the preservative activity of phenoxyethanol.

Sebamed Anti-Ageing Hautstraffende Lotion with Q10 Review

Sebamed Anti-ageing Cream

Sebamed products are catching up in a big way in India now. IMBB junta have reviewed a few products of Sebamed range and today, I am reviewing the Sebamed anti-ageing lotion, which my brother-in-law had got for my mom and his mom on his last trip to Germany. Till a few months ago, Sebamed was quite oblivious here, but then, now, dermatologists in India have started prescribing Sebamed products and online shopping sites in India have started stocking the same, so availability is not an issue anymore for us, hence, I am reviewing the anti-ageing lotion by Sebamed. Here’s the review, please do read.

Product Being Reviewed:

Sebamed anti-ageing lotion.

What Sebamed Anti-Ageing Hautstraffende Lotion with Q10 Claims (Taken from Website):

Everything is written in German on the pack and the bottle, so I referred to the official website, and I had to translate the page using Google because everything in there was in German too.

• Sebamed Anti-Ageing Firming Lotion with Q10 provides the skin with active ingredients that work with regular use conducive to the preservation of youthful smoothness and elasticity.
• Over time, the skin needs more Q10, as it can produce. Sebamed Anti-aging skin firming lotion contains Zellaktivator this important and highly effective plant protection and care components of Dermo-Active ®. These agents help protect against dryness and harmful substances, to relieve itching and a feeling of tension and help to protect against premature skin aging.
• Dermo-Active ® is an innovative active complex of plants with intensive skin-protection effect. It consists of:
o Barley spent grain extract rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamins that maintain the delicate skin and soothing effect.
o Argan oil: rich in unsaturated fatty acids and antioxidant vitamins protect against skin-damaging free radicals. Helps protect against premature skin aging and dehydration in
o Shea Butter: rounds with their skin-like lipid composition and natural UV-protection effect, the effect of Dermo-Active ® from.
• The pH value of 5.5 strengthens the skin’s protective acid mantle, promoting the protection against dehydration and harmful environmental influences and pathogens.


I think it is around 5 euros.



Again, the list was in German language, and I have no idea what aufbau-creme, hautstraffende lotion, and augencreme are.


My Take on Sebamed Anti-Ageing Hautstraffende Lotion with Q10:

Sebamed Hautstraffende cream is a runny white lotion, which comes in a white plastic bottle. There is no detectable smell in the lotion. Only a little amount is required for the entire face and it gets absorbed into the skin very quickly. This lotion is strictly for someone who is 35+ or 40 or has terribly dry skin. I think those ladies with acute dryness of their skin would love this. This is again not for ladies who have oily skin or those who are even under 30 I think because when I applied, ewwwwwww, it was so greasy and rich, but at the same time, on my mom, it gave her the dewy and rich feel.


I would never DARE to wear it even for 10 minutes on my face considering my past record with such creams which were not supposed to be for my age group or skin type and I had bouts of acne from them.

This lotion by Sebamed contains the trademark 5.5 pH formula that prevents dehydration and provides protection against environmental factors. Over a period of a few days, there was marked improvement in my mom’s skin’s elasticity and dryness and overall, there were positive changes that were noted.

Also, it keeps dry skin well moisturized throughout the day and there is no need for re-application.

Coming to the pros and cons of Sebamed Anti-Ageing Hautstraffende Lotion with Q10:

• An effective anti-ageing cream for women in their 40s or for women who have acute skin dryness.
• Over a period of time, it does improve skin’s suppleness and elasticity.
• Contains pH of 5.5 which is so essential to prevent dehydration of skin.
• Contains Q10 which is believed to be an effective anti-ageing agent.
• No detectable odor.
• Smooth consistency and texture that gets absorbed into the skin quickly.

It’s not for oily skin people or for whom anti-ageing creams are not meant. This is a pretty rich lotion, so it would do good for people with very dry skin or people suffering from ageing skin issues.

Will I Buy Sebamed Anti-Ageing Hautstraffende Lotion with Q10 Again?

Personally, I do not need it, but for my mom and my aunt, I would because it’s a real good anti-ageing lotion.
