What is Colloidal Gold?
Colloidal Gold is a suspension of gold nanoparticles in a fluid, usually water. Nanoparticle is a particle with size ranges from 1 to 100 nanometer. 1 nanometer is equivalent to 0.000000001 meter.
The Benefits of Colloidal Gold For Your Skin
Studies showed that colloidal gold has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties. Due to its nano particle size, colloidal gold penetrates deeper into the skin and acts as a carrier for other active ingredients. It helps improve the efficacy of skincare products. Due to its soothing and rejuvenating properties, colloidal gold is beneficial for all skin types including sensitive skin.
1. The Antioxidant Benefits of Colloidal Gold
Colloidal Gold neutralises free radicals and strengthens the skin's defense against environmental aggressors. It prevents oxidative stress and slows down skin ageing.
2. The Anti-Inflammatory Benefits of Colloidal Gold
Inflammation is one of the major contributing factors to skin ageing. UV rays, pollutants in the environment and harsh chemicals are the major causes of skin inflammation. Studies showed that colloidal gold has the ability to prevent inflammation and skin irritation.
3. The Skin Renewal Benefits of Colloidal Gold
Nanomedicine studies showed the potential role of colloidal gold in the wound healing process. It delivers nutrients and oxygen to injured cells and speeds up the skin's healing process. Colloidal gold seems to help release various growth factors such as Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF), Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) and Transforming Growth Factor (TGF). These growth factors have a significant role in the skin's renewal process in which the skin regenerates itself and repairs damaged cells. The ability of colloidal gold to activate the cellular renewal mechanism in the skin helps reduce the signs of ageing such as wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin and loss of elasticity.
