According to these inventors, there is a need for tools that facilitate the movement of CoQ10 and melatonin into the mitochondria to reverse mitochondrial damage caused by cellular aging and pathologies presenting with mitochondrial damage.

The present invention relates to a composition including melatonin, its metabolite or a derivative thereof, and coenzyme Q10. This composition can be used in pharmaceutical or cosmetic skin treatments. It potentiates the movement of both molecules into the mitochondria and facilitates percutaneous absorption, whereby both the melatonin and CoQ10 can reach all strata of the skin.
