The nano gold particles in our masks are only 1/2000 the size of our pores and penetrate easily into the dermis. Their cell vitalizing function is strong and helps facilitate cell metabolism and collagen production, fight free-radicals, and restore the skin to a revitalized, hydrated and youthful appearance.
Throughout history, gold has been recognized for its luxurious and beautifying properties. Historians have long maintained that Cleopatra used pure gold as a tool to maintain youthful skin by reportedly sleeping in a gold mask every night.
