Without a doubt! Beauty Gold, gold for cosmetic use, is a completely natural product. It is made without the use of copper. A moist base such as a cream or serum is always needed to make Beauty Gold adhere to the skin.

For a full facial, four 8x8 cm leaves or a booklet of twelve 5x5 cm leaves are sufficient. Twelve 8x8 cm leaves are perfect for application onto the décolletage.

After thoroughly cleansing the skin, apply a layer of moisturising and nourishing cream and gently apply the gold leaf. Remove after 15 -20 minutes with a gentle massage. For particularly effective results, the pure gold leaf should be used along with the Rich Cream Base by Beauty Gold because of its exclusive anti-ageing formulation.


Cosmetic gold is an extraordinary ingredient to creams and treatments and gives the skin an unparalleled radiance. It is ideal for the manufacture of skincare products, like gels, oils and anti-aging creams, as well as for the manufacture of lipsticks, eyeshadows and other eye and face makeup. Cosmetic gold can also be added to beauty products such as serums, hairsprays and nail polishes.

Absolutely not. Gold is biologically inert. This means that it does not interact in any way with our organism. We recommend, however, that you purchase gold that is exclusively certified for cosmetic use and free of copper, which is a potentially harmful metal.

By reducing the thickness of gold until it is so thin that it is almost impalpable. In order to be used for cosmetic treatments, gold must be produced in accordance with stringent safety protocols and good practices, making it an absolutely reliable product when applied to the skin or for use in cosmetic body care products.

In cosmetic productions, gold in shredded form is not used in its maximum purity due to its physical properties. At such thin thicknesses, the 24-carat gold molecules create strong bonds between them, forming non-workable aggregations. Conversely, a composition of 23kt gold contains a small percentage of other metals such as copper or silver, which allows for its perfect use in powder, glitter, and flake formats. The only recommendation is to shake the contents well before use to allow the metal to regain its volume.
