Ancient Egyptians were the pioneers in what we know today as COSMETICS & MEDICINE, as these products were crafted by hand and served many medicinal uses, as well as beauty applications.
Eye shadow was crafted by taking precious minerals of amethyst, hematite, lapis, and other colorful gemstones and pounding it into a powder, as eyeliner was crafted from black kohl to outline the eyes.
Egyptian royals used colloidal gold as a healing elixir for both mental clarity, and skin rejuvenation, as colloidal gold was known for its humectant properties when applied to the skin, and when ingested, improving brain circulation and function.
Whats In Luxe Skin
The History of Precious Minerals in Cosmetics & Medicine
The age-old concept of using precious minerals for beauty and medicine An ancient practice that has been around for over 5000 years or more.
After harvesting, miners would pound gold and silver for hours until it formed into flat sheets (known as leaves), later to be grinded into a powder, or flakes for direct application on skin. The leaves were also used as an additive in medicinal antidotes.
Producing precious minerals in liquid form, involved the extraction of particles through intense heat conducted through gold and silver in water, producing a serum. A serum known today as Colloidal Minerals.
Meanwhile, across the waters of the Mediterranean Sea, their neighbors, the ancient Greeks and romans were extracting silver minerals and using it for its bacterial properties.
Milk and perishables were being stored in silver canisters and containers treated with the colloidal mineral to prevent food spoilage. The tonic was also used for immune conditions, such as colds and other ailments, along with its topical application to treat blemishes and other bacterial problems associated with the skin.
