Okaayy, we see that you like gold. Who doesn’t -right?
Let’s start with some facts. Gold is a chemical element and precious metal that when used in skincare products it can come in two main mediums: colloidal gold and pure 24-karat gold powder. Gold can be an efficient ingredient as it reduces inflammation, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and, yes, it even protects skin from free radical damage!
Now let’s dive a little deeper. Although clinical studies on gold in skincare are still fairly limited, there is favorable data out there for its benefits. According to many medical doctors, gold can actually help other skincare ingredients penetrate better and become more effective. Additionally, some use of gold can promote firmness and elasticity of the skin as well as help delay the aging process.
And guess what? Gold is now known for its healing properties. According to a study by Molecules, a peer reviewed journal of chemistry, gold nanoparticles can help “accelerate wound healing mechanisms.” It is said that gold nanoparticles can help increase blood circulation and provide antiseptic properties.
But just as many other skincare products, gold can also be irritating for some (especially if you have a known allergy to gold when you wear it). As recommended, make sure you always patch-test any new product on a small area of the skin.
Now, we know what you are probably thinking. Where can I get it?
As gold continues to make its presence into beauty world, you can find it in face masks, eye masks, serums, and oils.
