Going for 24K Gold Skincare

24K Gold

Gold is a well-known and sought-after ingredient in high-end skincare. 24-Karat (24K) gold is becoming extremely popular not only because of its luxury but due to its beneficial impact on the skin.

24K gold is the purest form of gold and is one of the softest metals, making it easy for the skin to absorb. It is safe to use on all skin types and all ages. It is an ingredient that is being used a lot more in skincare as it is an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties that helps reduce skin redness, protect skin and give skin a beautiful glow.  

There is evidence from as far back as 2500 B.C. with gold being used in many different cultures. For example, Egyptians believed the healing powers of gold could cure all forms of mental, physical and spiritual ailments. Cleopatra is believed to have worn pure gold for a radiant and youthful complexion. Romans used gold preparations to treat sores and skin lesions, and in ancient Chinese medicine, gold was the secret to youthful skin, and empresses would apply gold to their faces.


The many benefits of 24K gold include glowing skin, restoring elasticity, slowing down collagen depletion and the breakdown of elastin to prevent sagging skin.

24K gold also stimulates cellular growth to regenerate healthy, firm skin cells, providing a tightening effect. The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory antioxidant properties can address many skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation and effectively neutralise the damage caused by free radicals, which are formed by environmental aggressors, such as U.V. rays, smoke, and pollution. It also recreates broken cellular connections, which diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, making it an excellent anti-ageing ingredient.  

When 24K gold is applied topically to the skin, it boosts blood flow to the treated area, speeds the cellular process and activates regeneration. Increased blood circulation also helps hydrate and maintain the skin’s moisture level, reducing acne and other skin ailments.

24K gold is also known to be an excellent conduit. In this sense, when combined with peptides, hyaluronic acid, and other anti-ageing ingredients, the infusion of gold helps these anti-ageing ingredients penetrate deeper into the layers of the skin, making these ingredients even more effective.


Our skin is a canvas, and we need to nurture and protect it from as early as our 20s to enjoy healthy, glowing skin for decades to come. Whilst it is never too late to start, we know that starting earlier will help slow down signs of ageing, including wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation and an uneven skin tone.
