The Most Coveted Skincare Ingredient
Adored by the beauty professionals and experts who are forever searching for the next best things, Gold certainly makes a big wave in the beauty industry. As precious as it is, Gold is indeed the most coveted skincare ingredient among those in the know.
What is Colloidal Gold?
Colloidal Gold is a suspension of nanoparticles of gold 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.
Why Colloidal Gold is Great for Your Skin?
Colloidal gold is scientifically known to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties.
A clinical study showed that gold nanoparticles are capable of penetrating deeper into the skin, therefore, it is likely to further enhance their therapeutic effects. Several studies showed that gold nanoparticles can be used in the treatment of cancers and wound healing.
Testimonial: “ Five star! I’ve been using Nano Gold Nourishing Cream 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 Benefits of using Nano Gold Skincare Products
1. The Antioxidant Benefits of Nano Gold
Nano Gold helps neutralise free radicals and strengthen the skin's defense against harsh elements including pollution and extreme weather.
Free radicals are free molecules that react with oxygen and trigger the formation of Reactive Oxygen Species. Large amount of Reactive Oxygen Species in the body is the main cause of Oxidative Stress. Oxidative Stress causes damage to skin cells including proteins, lipids and DNA damage. These kinds of damages accelerate the skin ageing process. In addition to that, DNA damage can lead to skin cancer.
The ability of Gold nanoparticles to prevent the formation of Reactive Oxygen Species helps prevent and reduce premature skin damage. Therefore using Gold infused skincare products can help slow down the appearance of signs of ageing. Compared to L-ascorbic acid, the most potent form of vitamin C; Colloidal Gold provides longer-lasting antioxidant skin benefits. Gold nanoparticles are not prone to oxidation upon a contact with water.
Testimonial: " Miracle cream. I started using Nano Gold Nourishing Cream when I was in London during the winter season and I found that this cream (has great) moisturising effects. No smiling lines appeared during my stay in the winter season which I usually have. I live in Asia where the weather is always hot and humid. I continue to use the cream and it works well too. I can say this is an amazing cream. It makes my skin looks dewy and firm." Susy, Singapore.
2. The Anti-inflammatory Benefits of Nano Gold
Chronic skin inflammation is the main cause of premature skin damage. Exposure to UV radiation is known to accelerate skin ageing. This is largely due to the fact that UV radiation triggers skin inflammation that often continues even after the skin is no longer exposed to UV rays.
Inflammatory ageing has been the subject of countless studies. Scientists are still trying to understand the exact mechanism. Chronic inflammation has been associated with many diseases including various type of cancers, heart diseases, Alzheimer's, arthritis and premature ageing.
The anti-inflammatory effects of Gold nanoparticles are beneficial for all skin types, particularly sensitive, environmentally-stress, ageing and premature ageing skin.
Daily use of Nano Gold skincare products like Bio-Collagen Serum and Bio-Collagen Ageless Cream help fight against the environmental skin ageing caused by free radicals, oxidative stress and pollution. These extra firming and lifting haute couture skincare duo have been formulated with 24-karat Colloidal Gold, Resveratrol, Coenzyme Q10, Ferulic Acid and Rose extract to rejuvenate, lift and firm the appearance of skin while also reduce the look of age spots. The Ultra-Low-Molecular-Weight Hyaluronic Acid, Scutellaria Baicalensis, Gotu Kola and Argan oil deeply plump up the skin, help prevent the degradation of collagen and diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The embodiment of true natural beauty in twenty-first century formulas, make your skin looks more radiant, revitalised and youthful.
Testimonial: " 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.

" Best Night Cream, Natural Health Beauty Awards Panel, UK.
3. The Skin Renewal Benefits of Nano Gold
Several studies in Nanomedicine highlighted the potential key role of gold nanoparticles in the wound healing process. Nano Gold were shown to help the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to injured cells, hence, they accelerates the skin's healing process.
The skin renewal benefits of Nano Gold help slow down the appearance of signs of ageing including wrinkles, lines, sagging skin and loss of elasticity. They also strengthen skin barrier function that help lower the risk of irritation on sensitive skin.
Last but not least, daily use of colloidal gold skincare products help even out skin tone and revive the complexion.
