Chantecaille is a line of luxury skin care and cosmetic products based on natural ingredients. In 2007 the luxury face cream Nan Gold Energizing Face Cream was launched based on Nanotechnology. The primary active ingredients in this face cream are gold and silk. It is formulated from silk fibres coated in gold. According to the manufacturers the gold and silk are delivered in particles so minute that they penetrate the skin. Chantecaille Nan Gold Energizing Face Cream claims to increase the blood circulation in your skin, as well as stimulate and promote cell and collagen production. This in turn, the manufacturers assert, will repair damaged skin and reduce wrinkles.
If you would like to try Chantecaille Nan Gold Energizing Face Cream, then you will need to be prepared to pay an extraordinary $420 for a small jar! All of Chantecaille’s products are expensive, but none are as expensive as this face cream. It is sold at a number of up-market department stores such as Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys. This cream is also available from a number of suppliers on-line who say of the product that it is ‘A powerful, healing breakthrough.’ So what is this amazing nanotechnology? Well, nanotechnology is basically defined as a field of applied science and technology whose unifying theme is the control of matter on the atomic and molecular Scale.’ With the use of terminology such as nanotechnology, Chantecaille markets the product as though they have made a scientific breakthrough, but in fact gold has been used for medicinal and cosmetic purposes by ancient cultures for thousands of years. In fact one of the co-founders of the company states that she was inspired to create the cream when she discovered that gold shots were given to patients who have multiple sclerosis and severe arthritis, because of its anti inflammatory and healing qualities.

The Bottom Line
If you are going to invest an extraordinary $420 in this product you will want to make sure that it really will reduce your wrinkles and rejuvenate your skin. Unfortunately, the manufacturers present no hard evidence to show that Chantecaille will actually do what they say it will do. Chantecaille would like us to believe that it is an innovative product due to the inclusion of gold, yet a number of other companies such as Guerlain and La Prairie have skin products in their range which include gold. These other products are certainly sold for much less than the $420 Chantecaille asks us to pay for the Nan Gold Energizing cream. We cannot recommend that you spend such an enormous amount of money on this product unless we can be sure that it works, and unfortunately with the present evidence available we are yet to be convinced.
