Alchemic Preservation

Anti-aging skincare focuses in on precious metals

Implications - The medieval practice of alchemy is based in the belief that precious metals hold special powers, an idea revisited through skincare products that highlight the supposed benefits of gold, diamonds, and more. The appeal of these products run the gamut. Use of such opulent materials emphasizes status; however, the belief that these metals hold youth-enhancing qualities speaks to a sense of whimsy as well.
