“Colloidal platinum makes skin less susceptible to damage from free radicals and premature ageing.” – Daniel Stangl
“Big girls need big diamonds,” Elizabeth Taylor famously said. Now, it turns out, a woman’s favourite bauble may add glow to your skin as well. Some of the most cutting-edge skincare lines are incorporating diamonds and their perfect partner, platinum. Even normally sceptical cosmetic chemists see the potential beauty benefits. “Minerals such as diamonds, gold, and platinum have been used as delivery systems for certain cancer drugs as a way of shielding the drug from the body’s defence system,” says Ni’Kita Wilson, cosmetic chemist and CEO of Catalyst Cosmetic Development.

Shiseido’s Bio-Performance Glow Revival Serum may not contain jewel particles, but it most definitely rejuvenates dull skin tone. Sulwhasoo’s Snowise Whitening Spot Serum also does the job.
