What is Colloidal Gold?

Colloidal Gold is a suspension of gold nanoparticles in a fluid, usually water. Gold nanoparticle has a particle size ranges from 1 to 100 nanometer. 1 nanometer is equivalent to 0.000000001 meter.

Colloidal Gold in Skincare

Colloidal gold is often used in skincare formulas such as face serum, lotion, cream and mask to provide anti-ageing effects and enhance the efficacy of the products. 

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. Colloidal Gold protects skin from damage caused by free radicals, oxidative stress and environmental aggressors

Colloidal Gold neutralises free radicals, prevents oxidative stress and strengthens skin's defense against environmental aggressors including toxic substances and pollutants.

2. Colloidal Gold prevents skin inflammation and irritation

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. Colloidal Gold boosts skin cell renewal

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.

4. Colloidal Gold enhances the stability and efficacy of skincare products

Due to its nanoscopic size, colloidal gold acts as a vehicle for other active ingredients to reach deep skin layer. The excellent skin penetration of colloidal gold improves the efficacy, stability and effectiveness of skincare products.

5. Colloidal Gold protects skin from harmful bacteria and microorganisms

Studies showed that colloidal gold has excellent antibacterial and anti-mycobacterial properties which help protect skin from harmful bacteria and microorganisms. Colloidal gold helps prevent skin irritation and infection.

6. Colloidal Gold protects skin collagen and elastin from degradation

Colloidal gold has anti-glycation effects, which protect collagen, elastin and other proteins in the skin from degradation. Colloidal gold has been shown to firm and tone the skin.

7. Colloidal Gold improves skin hydration and elasticity

Colloidal gold strengthens skin barrier function and prevents trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL). The ability of colloidal gold to improve skin hydration helps restore skin's elasticity, smoothness and vitality.

Can all skin types benefit from colloidal gold?

Yes, all skin types including sensitive skin can hugely benefit from using colloidal gold skincare products.

Can you use colloidal gold skincare products during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

Yes, colloidal gold skincare products are safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Always check and make sure that the other ingredients in the products are also safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Is there any ingredient recommended to be used together with colloidal gold?

Colloidal gold acts as a carrier for other active ingredients to go deep into the skin; therefore look for skincare products which contain colloidal gold, peptides, collagen boosters, antioxidants and vitamins for even better results.

When is the best time to use colloidal gold skincare products?

Colloidal gold is not phototoxic. It doesn't cause photosensitivity, so you can use colloidal gold skincare products at anytime during the day and night. Always check and make sure that the other ingredients in the products are also not phototoxic.
