What Does Gold Leaf Do In Skin Care?

Our 24K Gold Nourishing Oil is one of our most popular products! Gold is a potent antioxidant revered for its youth-promoting properties. Find out more about the incredible benefits of gold leaf skincare.

What is 24K Gold Leaf Oil?

You can’t tell looking at the loose coins rolling around in your wallet, but gold contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that are incredibly beneficial for skin.

The youth-promoting benefits of gold skin care

Gold is revered for its ability to promote youthful-looking skin by stimulating collagen and increasing elasticity for a firmer complexion.

We’re not suggesting you rub gold coins onto your face! Gold skin care infused with gold leaf (flakes of gold) is the way to impart this precious metal’s benefits to your skin.

How is gold leaf made?

The basic method of producing gold leaf has remained the same for centuries - bars of gold are essentially beaten into tiny flakes. These tiny flakes of precious metal are then infused into different types of gold skin care alongside other beneficial ingredients.

Meet our esmi 24k Gold Nourishing Oil!

Luxurious and non-greasy esmi 24K Gold Nourishing Oil contains high quality, cosmetic grade, 24k gold flakes and is perfect for combination to dry skin as a moisturiser. It helps address dryness, dehydration, ageing, fine lines and wrinkles on face, neck, and décolletage.

A 100% cruelty free and vegan formulation, the oil also contains natural and plant derived ingredients including a blend of rosehip, jojoba, avocado, and coconut oil. We look at the benefits of these incredible oils further along!

How does gold leaf oil affect skin?

The pure gold in esmi 24K Gold Nourishing Oil offers powerful anti-ageing and skin saving benefits.

Helps boosts circulation

Gold is known to help improve blood circulation. The oil imparts a beautiful healthy glow post-application thanks to this boost in circulation!

Stimulated collagen and improves skin elasticity

Gold skin care counters the breakdown of collagen fibres and elastin in the skin. This breakdown occurs naturally with age and increases with free-radical activity leading to sagging skin, fine lines, loss of volume and skin elasticity.

esmi 24K Gold Nourishing Oil can help stimulate skin’s collagen production and strengthen elasticity for a smoother, firmer, looking complexion.

Protects against environmental stressors

Not only does gold antioxidant activity help increase the production of new collagen, but it can also help protect the health of existing collagen. It aids in guarding the skin against the free-radical damage caused by external stressors including pollution, UV light, and other toxins our skin comes in contact with every day.

The antioxidants in our gold leaf skin care helps neutralise damaging free radical activity on existing collagen to fight signs of fine lines, inflammation, hyperpigmentation, and dullness. 

How do you use 24K gold leaf oil? 

esmi 24k Gold Nourishing Oil is designed as the moisturising step and fits into your routine like this:

Cleanser followed by 24K Gold Leaf Oil or, if you use a serum, cleanser then serum then 24K Gold Leaf Oil

Use the dropper to apply 2-3 drops of oil directly onto your palm and massage into the skin - including around the eye area. You can use the oil in your morning and evening routine.

Supporting ingredients

It’s not just the gold working hard for your skin in our 24K Gold Leaf Oil! It also contains a blend of plant oils and other skin-saving ingredients to help boost moisture levels, improve elasticity and firmness, fight free radical activity, minimise pigmentation, and aid in healing damaged skin.

Rosehip oil

High in vitamin A, rosehip oil aids in skin regeneration, brightening, evening out skin tone, and improving firmness and elasticity.

Jojoba oil

A plant oil with characteristics similar to your skin’s own sebum, jojoba helps to regulate oil production, heal the skin barrier, and has anti-inflammatory and moisture promoting qualities.

Avocado oil

Packed with vitamins A, B, C and D, and vitamin E, the fatty acids in avocado oil promote firmer, softer skin, hydration, and neutralise free radical damage.

Coconut oil

With skin-saving fatty acids, like linoleic acid and lauric acid, coconut oil is also antibacterial and provides emollient, skin softening benefits.
