Overview over GoldCosmetica® flakes and powders
The Different Compositions
What started 14 years ago as a small idea to keep our gold leaf factory busy during the off season, turned out to become GoldCosmetica’s most popular product category: our raw materials. In addition to the classics – gold 985, silver 999 and platinum 999 – the product category includes six more compositions. A total of 9 stunning compositions allow the cosmetics industry to realize their product ideas in a visually appealing way. However, the color shades are not created by adding pigments, but by carefully combining gold, silver, copper and palladium.
All GoldCosmetica flakes and powders are available in different compositions. The number behind the product name indicates the gold, silver or platinum component in percent. Components Gold 500 indicates a product that contains 50% gold. Other designations in the line follow this system.

Did you notice that GoldCosmetica does not offer flakes and powders made of pure gold 999 (24K)? Click here to find out why and read about why you should always be skeptical when you are offered 24 karat gold flakes.
Each Composition Is Available In Different Particle Sizes
Flakes, Powder and Extra Fine Powder – during production, we beat the cosmetic gold, silver and platinum into wafer-thin sheets, before grinding and sifting them into flakes and powders of different particle sizes. The different particle sizes can be divided into the following categories:
|Flakes||No. 5 (Standard)||~ 2,5 mm|
|No. 6||~ 1,0 mm|
|Powder||No. 7 (Standard)||~ 600 microns|
|No. 8||~ 425 microns|
|No. 9||~ 400 microns|
|Extra fine Powder||No. 14||~ 60 microns|
|Micro Mesh||No. 0||~ 130 mm diameter|
If you are interested in the cosmetic raw materials gold, silver and platinum, you will want to know the mixing ratio in which the raw materials are used. From experience, we recommend using about 10 – 100 grams of our cosmetic raw materials per 1000 liters of product for a visually appealing effect.
But how much is 10 – 100 grams? And how will the final product look like?
To give you a better idea of how the raw materials can look in the final product, we have prepared various mixing ratios for you. The flasks show from left to right how 10g, 50g and 100g of flakes, powder and extra fine powder per 1000 liters of product visually differ. For a special visual effect the different particle sizes can also be mixed with each other. For the samples you see below we used the gold composition gold 985.
Note: Depending on the viscosity of your product, flakes and powder may settle to the bottom over time. By shaking the flask, the flakes and powder can be evenly distributed in the product again. We will be happy to share product specific insights with you. Please use our contact form to get in touch.
