Why Gold-infused Skincare is Worth Its Weight

This precious and powerful ancient mineral boosts your glow alongside the alchemy of other breakthrough ingredients.

Sylvie Chantecaille discovered the ancient Ayurvedic practice of gold therapy in India, after being treated with the precious metal after a horseback riding accident. Pure gold has long been used in eastern traditions to treat trauma and stress, both physical and emotional. Inspired by her quick recovery, in 2007 Sylvie dreamed up what would become Chantecaille’s Gold Collection with the launch of Nano Gold Energizing Cream and Eye Cream. Sourced from Japan, our 24k gold particles—the mineral in its purest form—are actually bound to other ingredients, like peptides or Vitamin C, to amplify the metal’s regenerative effects. Together, their properties soften the appearance of aging.

Our latest Gold Collection formula, 24K Gold Serum Intense, features an exciting form of gold bonded to Vitamin C to take the vitamin’s brightening properties to new heights. The groundbreaking serum also features a gold pentapeptide known for its remarkable line-smoothing properties.

Discover the new formula and the entire Gold Collection below.

24K Gold Serum Intense

This silky serum boasts a formula of fast-acting, powerful ingredients chosen for their ability to recharge, smooth, and illuminate the skin. An innovative cocktail of peptides, Vitamin C, pure gold, botanicals, and hyaluronic acid improves radiance and the look of fine lines and wrinkles.*

How to use it: Layer this radiance-boosting serum under your moisturizer day and night to boost glow—if you regularly use a Gold Collection formula for hydration, doubling up on the gold benefits will equal even more radiant power.

INGREDIENTS: Gold Vitamin C, Glow-enhancing Botanical, Gold Pentapeptide, New Generation Hyaluronic Acid, Night Repair Enzymes.

24K Gold Energizing Face Cream

Like all of its fellow Gold formulas, this balm-like moisturizer is infused with 24k gold.. It’s also packed with high-performance botanicals like Butcher’s Broom, Centella and Marigold that work to diminish visible redness, as well as Bionymph Peptide Stem Cell Extract that reduces the look of lines and dullness.

How to use it: Because of its balm-like texture, it’s great for anyone with fatigued or tired looking skin in need of a jolt of energy or radiance. “I have sensitive skin, so in the winter I boost Rose de Mai Cream with a layer of Gold Cream during the day,” Sylvie says.

INGREDIENTS: Gold Heptapeptide, Bionymph Peptide Stem Cell Extract, Plantago Extract, Tripeptide, Microalgae Extract.

24 Karat Gold Firming Moisturizer

The most powerful moisturizer in the collection with antioxidant-rich ingredients, the treatment incorporates Apple Stem Cells to reduce the appearance of fine lines, and the extract of a potent microalgae called Dunaliella Salina, which helps you get your glow on.

How to use it: It’s rich in powerful ingredients that are perfect for those with dry skin who want a firmer looking, visibly less-lined complexion. The pump dispenser is also super convenient and well-suited to travel.

Gold Energizing Eye Serum

This smoothing and moisturizing eye serum turbo-charges its gold base with raspberry and tomato plant stem cells, plus a blend of peptides that address the look of puffiness and the appearance of wrinkles.

How to use it: The serum is a targeted eye treatment that’s also rich in botanicals for smoothing out the look of the “11s” and marionette lines—so go ahead and use it around the mouth, nose and forehead. “In the morning, I like to de-puff my eyes with Gold Energizing Eye Serum. The cooling gold-covered rollerball irons any pillow creases right out!” Alex Chantecaille says.

How to use it: This is perfect for all skin types or mature skin, as well as those who love a richer emollient cream.
