Gold Nanoparticles Enhance The Skin Penetration of Anti-Ageing Products
Nano technology has been revolutionising many industries for the past decades. In health and beauty industries, nano size particles have enabled medical and beauty treatments to be much more effective than ever before.
With a particle size of 0.000000001 meter, nano particles penetrate deeper into the skin and become carriers of other active ingredients. Scientific studies showed that gold nanoparticles enhance the skin penetration of skincare products. Gold nanoparticles have become the gold-standard ingredient for anti-ageing products.
I use gold nanoparticles in some of my anti-ageing skincare formulas to enable deeper penetration of all the active ingredients into the skin to deliver better results faster. In Nano Gold Nourishing Cream, the presence of gold nanoparticles help this anti-ageing moisturiser to soothe dry-sensitive skin and reduce the signs of ageing more effectively.
“ Five star! I’ve been using this moisturiser for over a month now and am super happy. I love how it works on my face! This face cream is light and silky and it makes my skin smooth and firm. It’s not greasy at all and it absorbs right in. It really feels like I am doing something special for myself when I put it on!" Julia, UK.
The Antioxidant and Anti-Ageing Properties of Gold Nanoparticles
Gold Nanoparticles have been shown to speed up wound healing and protect cells from free radicals and oxidative stress. Wound healing process is closely associated with the presence of epidermal growth factor (EGF) and transforming growth factor (TGF) in our body. The releases of EGF and TGF in our body improve the ability of the skin to repair damaged skin cells. As a result, they help diminish the signs of ageing such as wrinkles, lines, age spots and sagging skin.
Due to its antioxidative and antimicrobial properties, nano gold protects skin cells from free radicals, oxidative stress and pathogens. For best results, I only use 24-karat gold nanoparticles in my skincare formulas. To help protect your skin from premature ageing and skin damage, apply Rose Gold Antioxidant Youthful Serum underneath your moisturiser. Formulated with 24-karat gold nanoparticles, rose flower extract, saccharide isomerate, panthenol, allantoin, cacay and prickly pear oil; this youthful serum is particularly rich in antioxidants and perfect for both day-time and night-time use.

Gold Nanoparticles Boost The Efficacy of Other Antioxidants
Studies published in various medical journals suggested that gold nanoparticles boost the efficacy of other antioxidants. The studies showed that gold nanoparticles in a skincare formula enhance the overall antioxidant effects of the skincare product.
It seems that gold nanoparticles work in synergy with many other antioxidants. This is one of the reasons that I use a combination of 24-karat nano gold, Resveratrol, Ferulic Acid, Coenzyme Q10 and vitamin E in my award-winning anti-ageing skincare formula, Bio-Collagen Serum. This luxuriously powerful yet light-in-texture face serum can be used for all skin types, particularly those with signs of ageing or premature ageing such as wrinkles and sagging skin. It is the perfect ideal serum for all year round; even in hot, humid summer days and freezing cold winter nights.
“ Facelift in a bottle! Delighted with my purchase. Within minutes my skin feels tighter and looks fresher.” Rachel, UK.
The Use of Gold Nanoparticles in Health and Beauty Products
The full potential health and beauty benefits of Gold nanoparticles have not been widely exposed yet. In the medical field, there is an increasing number of studies to look for the potential use of gold nanoparticles in the treatment of various diseases including cancers.
As a skincare scientist, I have been using gold nanoparticles to formulate anti-ageing skincare products. The main criterias for choosing the ingredients for my skincare products are their proven health benefits. I believe that only best ingredients can deliver best results. Nevertheless, ageless beauty is not about forever looking like a 20 years old. Regardless of your age, nothing looks more beautiful on you than healthy, younger-looking skin.
Various skin components such as hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin, get depleted with age. Overtime, this causes the skin to lose its youthfulness. As a result, the appearance of wrinkles, lines and uneven skin tone are becoming more prominent. To help your skin retains its youthfulness for longer, use anti-ageing moisturiser like Bio-Collagen Ageless Cream. This haute couture rejuvenating face cream has been specially formulated to diminish the look of wrinkles, lines, sagging skin and dark spots.
" When a girl reaches certain age a little smudge of Henry's magic goes a long way! It slides onto skin as smoothly as silk and leaves your face feeling plumped-up. What's more, for really exciting effects, introduce Henry to other parts of your body; you'll be amazed with the wrinkle-free results!" Best Night Cream, Natural Health.
