Mother of Pearl, more properly known as pearl nacre, is the hard, shiny stuff that makes up pearl exteriors and the inside of some mollusc shells
. It’s caught eyes throughout history for its polish and shine, but now that we’ve taken a closer look with chemical testing and powerful microscopes, it’s catching eyes all over again. OROGOLD Cosmetics also uses this luxurious wonder as an ingredient in its products.
The first thing that jumps out when analyzing nacre is that it’s both impressively strong and flexible for its weight
. This is because it’s composed of alternating layers of aragonite (a type of calcium) and specialised elastic biopolymers. These naturally grow in a random but highly effective pattern. Unusual as this is, researchers just had to find out how and why. The answer, as they discovered, was fibroblasts.
Fibroblasts are regenerative cells that play a vital role in healing. They’re a living, growing framework found in all parts of the body that tell new cells how to grow and what they should be doing. They’re like the body’s chief designer, holding the plans,...

Although the importance of sun protection has been known for thousands of years, sunscreen as we know it is a surprisingly recent thing. The earliest synthetic sunscreens, dating back to the 1930s, were somewhat useful but still fairly primitive and ineffectual. Coincidentally, that’s exactly what people will say about the sun protection
we use now.
The thing is, the sun is really, really bright. It gives off a huge amount of energy, including light on the ultraviolet (UV) spectrum which is what causes all the skin damage. There are two kinds of UV we have to worry about:
- UVB is the kind of radiation you get from direct sunlight on a hot summer day. It’s the stuff that causes sunburns and peeling. It’s largely blocked out by clouds, windows and the like. It burns but doesn’t penetrate the outer layer of the skin and only causes superficial damage.
- UVA is the kind of sunlight you get everywhere, in every season. It’s the light that doesn’t get filtered out by clouds or windows. It’s the stuff that causes premature aging and wrinkling, not only because it’s always around but also because it does penetrate the outer layers of the skin and deteriorates...

and roe are essentially fish eggs. They have been a delicacy for hundreds of years, with people throughout history claiming that it has all kinds of health benefits
and curative powers. It’s only recently though that we’ve had the technology to thoroughly analyze the stuff, compare different varieties and find out whether it really lives up to the hype. In short, it most certainly does. It’s packed with nutrients like nothing else, making it both a genuine superfood and an exceptional ingredient for use in cosmetics. OROGOLD reviews how caviar works in this article.
is generally very rich in protein, vitamins, essential fatty acids and minerals which is why it’s such a good health food. It has almost everything the body needs in extraordinary quantities. Caviar, however, is like ultra-concentrated super fish.

The History of OROGOLD
OROGOLD was established to provide consumers with cutting edge skin care with an emphasis on anti-aging and a luxury experience. The anti-aging industry is growing by leaps and bounds whether it is in scientific technology being developed to extend life or skin care products to improve the appearance of aging skin. Seeing the consumer demand for products that help them retain a youthful appearance inspired the formation of the OROGOLD brand. Fusing the goal to provide the latest in skin care advances with a customer experience that goes above and beyond led to the use of gold as our signature ingredient. All OROGOLD products are infused with the finest gold imported from Italy.
Gold has been synonymous with beauty and luxury since its discovery. Although it is not known for certain when gold was first discovered, it is presumed to have been discovered by early hominids. There is mention of gold in the Bible which is believed to have been committed to paper beginning nearly 3500 years ago. Ancient Egyptian documents and inscriptions contain references to gold mining, geology and metallurgy dating back to at least to 3100 B.C. Ancient royalty was enamored with the metal; Cleopatra was rumored to have slept in a gold mask every night. This was just the beginning of a mystical journey to the present day when gold is still considered a valuable and revered metal. Infusing the products of a world renowned skin care company with this treasured metal is a suitable combination.
