What we know about cosmetic gold leaf

In human patch tests performed by the Fresenius Institute in Germany, cosmetic gold leaf from GoldCosmetica was found to be non-irritating to the skin. No reactions of concern that might indicate a primary irritating effect of cosmetic gold leaf on the skin were detected.

But there is more ...

Studies conducted by the Swiss Skin Test Institute revealed that cosmetic gold leaf is highly effective in combating skin aging. These studies were conducted on healthy skin, and the effects were documented after 4 and 8 weeks of application. The results demonstrated significant improvements in skin firmness, scaliness, and smoothness, as well as reductions in the erythema and melanin indexes, indicating a reduction in pigmentation and dark circles.

It is important to note that these studies were performed using cosmetic gold leaf produced according to cosmetic GMP in a special process, ensuring that the product is free of heavy metals and other non-cosmetic substances.

  • The skin firmness was increased (+13 %*, face)
  • The skin scaliness was reduced (-29 %*, forearms)
  • The skin smoothness was increased (+14 %*, forearms)
  • The erythema index was reduced (-13 %*, pigmentation reduction of dark circles)
  • The melanin index was reduced (-21 %**, pigmentation reduction of dark circles)
