When it comes to luxury skin care, Omorovicza is a brand worth its weight in gold. Taking inspiration from the oracle of beauty herself, Cleopatra – who is believed to have slept in a golden face mask every night to enhance the suppleness of her complexion and preserve its natural luminosity- all the products in Omorovicza‘s latest Gold Range contain colloidal gold. Gold’s ability to repair any traces of micro-damage to the skin has long since been known and by combining the revered anti-inflammatory properties of gold with the relatively unknown secret of Budapest’s healing waters; Stephen and Margaret de Heinrich de Omorovicza, alongside a Hungarian Nobel Prize winning laboratory, have discovered a rejuvenated take on the age old question of anti-ageing.
After visiting the baths in Budapest, Margaret and Stephen were astounded by the visible improvements to their skin. Coupled with Stephen’s family heritage in skin care – the Omorovicza family built the majestic Racz spa on a medieval healing spring in the Hungarian capital of Budapest over two hundred years ago- both Stephen and Margaret were inspired to launch a new luxury skin care brand encompassing their newly discovered secret.
Not content with simply marketing the romantic sentiments of Hungary’s healing waters; the couple are also keen to promote the scientific rigour of Omorovicza products. By joining forces with a leading dermatological laboratory, Omorovicza has created and perfected a delivery system, patented as Hydro Mineral Transference ™. This system ensures the revered minerals used in their products -including copper, zinc and magnesium- are transformed to guarantee optimal absorption into the epidermis where minerals are most effective. Consequently, consumers do not fail to notice the reduced appearance of fine lines and renewed elasticity from products such as Gold Eye Lift.
Not to be outshined, the use of colloidal gold is just as important in targeting ageing. In a similar method, colloidal gold is also transformed via a process of bio-fermentation allowing optimal absorption into the epidermis. The positive effects of gold are demonstrated in both Gold Night Drops and Gold Flash Firming Serum, in which the bio form of colloidal gold is used to correct skin tone, increase its radiance and boost the skin’s immune system.
Both Gold Sugar Scrub and Gold Shimmer Oil (awarded ‘Best Skin Glossing Oil’ by Harper’s Bazaar), add a touch of decadence to any habitual skin care regime, as well as dramatically refining the skin’s texture to leave skin soft and naturally glowing.
Unlike many leading skin care brands, Omorovicza is committed to creating products which do not include commonly used synthetic ingredients that can be detrimental to the skin’s health. Notably, Gold Rescue Cream is the only intense moisturising cream on the market which does not contain mineral oil or other petro-chemicals. Consequently, skin appears rejuvenated.
With a strong affiliation to the healing waters of Budapest and an irresistible penchant for the luxurious qualities of gold, the Omorovicza family has lovingly created a skin care range which is simply luminous.
