The amazing power of gold
When many think of gold they just think of expensive watches and jewellery, but it can be so much more than that. Referred to as the ‘elixir of life’, gold has had uses throughout history; even Cleopatra was known for sleeping in a gold mask! Since this time, it’s had a whole range of applications for both skincare and beauty, with particular focus on helping to rejuvenate and revitalise the complexion. Recently, there has also been major leaps forward in the science and research of gold within skincare, with one of the most prominent outcomes being nano-gold.
Known also as colloidal gold, this extraordinary form of the precious metal is a suspension of miscule gold particles within a liquid that is now seen in high-end skincare.

Furthermore, research has suggested it can help to enhance skin permeation, giving the complexion a naturally healthy appearance. To make this unique ingredient even better, it is known to be beneficial for helping the appearance of ageing, including wrinkles and fine lines. It is also said to help with the skin's elasticity and firmness.
