Effects of cosmetic gold leaf

Is cosmetic gold leaf safe for the skin?

Important information for developers of skin care products

We often get asked whether gold has a harmful effect in cosmetics, if cosmetic gold leaf can be used without concerns in skin care products and how the material affects the skin’s appearance in the long term.

Therefore, we summarized the key information for you:

Just one thing beforehand: all tests and studies were done with cosmetic gold leaf from Gold Cosmetica, which is produced according to cosmetic GMP in a special process. 

A contamination by heavy metals and non-cosmetic substances is hereby explicitly excluded. Thus, the effect of the product is guaranteed and it’s suitable for cosmetic use.

So let’s get started and answer your questions

Human patch tests done at the Fresenius Institute in Germany have shown that the cosmetic gold leaf from Gold Cosmetica can be classified as harmless with regard to any skin-irritating effect.

No suspicious reactions were found which could indicate that cosmetic gold leaf has a primary irritating effect on the skin.

But there is more …

Cosmetic gold leaf also proves to be extremely effective against skin aging. The results of the clinical studies we commissioned from the Swiss Skin Test Institute provide clear evidence.

In the studies, the cosmetic gold leaf from Gold Cosmetica was tested on healthy skin. The results were documented after 4 and 8 weeks of application showing the following extremely positive effects:

  • Skin firmness was increased (+13 %*, face)
  • Skin scaliness was reduced (-29 %*, forearms)
  • 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)

These are significant improvements versus the baseline, achieved through the use of cosmetic gold leaf on the skin.

But please do not just believe my word …
