Use of Gold in Food and Beauty Products

There is a historically tradition of combining gold with food and drink products eg in Japan, tradition suggests thin gold-foils placed into tea, sake and food are beneficial to health. A number of companies including Delafee are currently using gold as a luxury enhancement for food and drink products including chocolate, deserts and even champagne.

Gold flake and nanoparticles are also finding use in a wide range of cosmetic and beauty applications. Chantecaille market a Nano Gold Energising Cream and Guerlain produce the the L'Or Radiance Concentrate product.

Other companies with 'nanogold' based cosmetic products include NanoPlasma Centre's Nanoseal range of face creams, and SongSing Nano Technology's skin creams.
