Properties and benefits of gold leaf for skin care
How and why 24 karat gold makes us beautiful?
Gold has been used in cosmetics since ancient times by virtue of its nature and properties. From the period of the Egyptian pharaohs, right up to the Roman Empire, this metal has been renowned as an exclusive ally of beauty, a privilege accessible only to the wealthy upper classes. Today cosmetic gold is used for personal skin care as well as in the fashion, movie and retail industries.
Gold is good for the skin and is safe to use because of its unique qualities:
It is biologically inert and therefore does not cause any adverse skin reactions
It is not altered by exposure to air, water and chemical agents like acids (oxidants) and water-based solutions. For this reason, it acts as a protective barrier against the oxidation of creams used in treatments.
It does not react with sulfur or selenium and can therefore be used with cosmetic products that contain sulfur (like mud or thermal treatments) or selenium (widely used in anti-wrinkle and anti-aging creams).
As it is an extremely malleable metal, it can be hammered into ultra-thin sheets that can be applied on the skin without causing any discomfort or friction.
Beauty Gold manufactures its gold product in Florence, Italy, in compliance with all the national and European regulations. The products are guaranteed by the seal of Giusto Manetti Battiloro, the company that owns the Beauty Gold brand and has specialized in the processing of precious metals for over 400 years.
What are the benefits of the gold face and body masks?
The beneficial properties of gold are due to the unique physical properties of the mineral. What does 24k gold do for the skin?
It imparts a rich glow to the skin: gold microcrystals reflect the light to give skin an incredible luminous quality. This “soft focus” effect minimizes and blurs the appearance of wrinkles, like in photography, to create an all-over radiance that enriches any makeup with stunning reflections.
Gold also has a piezoelectric effect which means that it is able to:
Promote the drainage of stagnant fluids
Stimulate the skin tissue regeneration processes.
How to apply 24k gold leaf to the skin?
It’s very easy: simply place in on the face or the parts of the body to be treated, press down lightly on the tissue-paper side to ensure that it adheres well, and then remove the paper layer. Gold leaf is available in a standard format and it can be cut into the required size with an ordinary pair of scissors.
