Best of 2014: Product of the Year and a Recap of All Winners

Best of 2014: Product of the Year
December 16, 2014 Reviewed by Christina 3 Comments

During the past two weeks, we've awarded the title of "Best of 2014" to anti-aging skin care products in nine categories. In addition to old favorites, we've seen some new discoveries — including today's final winner of Product of the Year. When this anti-aging serum from New Zealand burst onto the scene this past spring, we were excited to see skin care that was developed to target mitochondria, since that was one of Marta's natural anti-aging product predictions for 2014. When the positive feedback from the TIA community started to pour in, we knew that we'd found a powerful new weapon in our anti-aging arsenal.

The Winner: MitoQ Moisturizing Anti-Aging Serum

MitoQ Moisturizing Anti-Aging Serum has just one active ingredient: mitoquinol mesylate, a unique turbo-charged form of ubiquinone (the antioxidant in Coenzyme Q10) that reduces mitochondrial oxidative damage and boosts collagen and elastin production. In contrast to other antioxidants, which distribute evenly throughout the cell, MitoQ's form of ubiquinone is accumulated selectively and extensively by mitochondria. This accumulation, or concentration, is where MitoQ bases its claims of being 1,000 times stronger than other antioxidants. By targeting mitochrondria to support healthy cell function, MitoQ Moisturizing Anti-Aging Serum helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, enhance skin's firmness and fade age spots. As Marta reported, it "transformed my neck from rough, wrinkled and sun damaged to positively buttery," while TIA reviewers and members have been amazed by noticeable improvement in lip lines, large pores, crepeyness, skin tone, crow's feet, eleven lines, neck wrinkles and dark spots.

Chosen by Marta as one of the Five Best Anti-Aging Serums of 2014, and by the TIA community as one of the 10 Customer Favorites Your Skin Can't Do Without, this creamy serum's unique approach to turning back the clock has earned it top honors as Truth In Aging's Product of the Year.

    This isn't just ubiquinone, it has a lipophilic attachment. Per their website:

    "MitoQ is produced by binding a form of Co Q10 called ubiquinone, to a fat soluble, positively-charged molecule. This positively charged molecule is able to flow directly into the mitochondria and through the normally impermeable inner membrane to end up deep inside the mitochondria."

    Hi Sogul, there's quite a bit of evidence that topical ubiquinone has an effect on aging skin and does a lot more than you suggest. Here is one link (of many) to a published study on ubiquinone and anti-aging:

    I have just read this, is this true?
    It is true that ubiquinone could reduce the signs of aging! But we cannot use it!. It is HYDROPHOBIC, This means that It does not work in liquid environments. Ingesting via pill or using via face cream therefore makes it useless! Ubiquinone is contained within the matrix of the mitochondria which is where any potential benefit of it would be received. And for those of you not as passionate about science as I am, the ubiquinone can not get past the inner membrane to the matrix making you rub useless product into your skin. All this will do is tighten your pores giving you a temporary affect of tighter skin. Do not trust anything that says ubiquinone!
