Award-winning cult favourite

Transform your skin with Liquid Gold, an award-winning and revolutionary treatment which utilises a state of the art, low pH delivery system to effectively diminish wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage.

Praised by the beauty elite, our bestselling ‘cult’ product works like an ‘overnight facial’ to brighten and revitalise tired, ageing skin, and radically improve the appearance of the complexion. In fact, clinical studies show that in just 20 minutes, Liquid Gold decreases wrinkle depth, improves texture and increases moisture within the skin.

The key to Liquid Gold’s effectiveness is the low pH delivery system utilised to help star ingredient Glycolic Acid penetrate into the deeper levels of the skin, truly stimulating it to resurface and rejuvenate.

Glycolic Acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) which can be found naturally in plants such as sugar beets and sugar cane and its benefits for the skin are numerous. First and foremost, Glycolic Acid is a chemical exfoliant which works to shift dead skin cells from the surface of your skin by breaking down the glue which sticks the dead cells together, lifting them away effortlessly. This then reveals fresh, new skin, resulting in your complexion becoming more toned and luminous. It doesn’t just exfoliate the surface though; due to its small molecular size, it is also able to trigger exfoliation on the walls of your pores, whereby helping to reduce the build-up of cells in the pore which can lead to skin breakouts.

Found: bottled brilliance. We all search hard and global for off-Richter radiance. We’ve polled dermatologists, facialists and backstage model maintenance crews and know what? The big rater remains Alpha-H Liquid Gold, a cult Australian no-rinse, all-in-one exfoliant, toner and serum.

-Harper's Bazaar Australia

Further to this, Glycolic Acid’s small molecular size also allows it to penetrate deeper into your skin. In doing this, it takes other larger ingredients along with it, ramping up your benefits. It is also a powerful moisture magnet, and boosts hydration in your skin by increasing its natural production of Hyaluronic Acid. Glycolic Acid also triggers your skin’s healing processes, causing them to produce more collagen fibres.

Licorice Extract also adds its benefits to this genius formulation, helping to further brighten the complexion by working to reduce dark spots and pigmentation on the skin, as well as regulating the skin’s oil production and softening the size of pores.

Silk Proteins help to protect the skin against the elements, and prevent evaporative water loss thanks to its moisture binding abilities.

In 2008, two separate independent clinical trials were conducted on the Liquid Gold formulation. One of these involved two dermatologists blind testing on a pool of patients who had never previously used products containing Glycolic Acid. The trials returned the following results, which speak volumes about the effectiveness of this cult favourite:

  • Wrinkle depth reduced an average of 20% in 20 minutes
  • Moisture levels were boosted by an average of 12% in 20 minutes
  • Roughness of the skin was reduced by an average of 23% in 20 minutes
  • 100% of participants showed an improvement in wrinkle depth in 20 minutes

 It creates a perfect canvas for smooth, supple, radiant skin with minimal pores.

10 things you didn’t know about Liquid Gold

icon/arrow/right Created with Sketch.


Can I use Liquid Gold when I am pregnant/breastfeeding?

Yes, Liquid Gold is suitable for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Which skin types is Liquid Gold best for?

Liquid Gold is suitable for most skin types. Mature, sun damaged, prematurely aged and blemish-scarred skins will find Liquid Gold particularly beneficial.

Which skin types is Liquid Gold not suitable for?

If you have truly sensitive or rosacea-prone skin, you may find that Liquid Gold is too strong/active for your skin. It’s also important to ensure your skin’s lipid barrier is intact before beginning to use an active product like Liquid Gold, else it may further irritate the skin.

Are there any contraindications whilst using Liquid Gold or other products with active ingredients?

Liquid Gold may not be suitable whilst taking certain medication including oral retinoids such as Roaccutane and oral steroids. Please contact us for advice if you are uncertain if your medication might not be suitable.

Can I use Liquid Gold every night?

We understand; Liquid Gold’s results are so great that you want them every day! However, we recommend only using Liquid Gold every second night, and you may need to build up to this frequency.

Is this product suitable for teenagers?

Liquid Gold is a progressive resurfacing lotion which helps to accelerate cell turnover. It is best suited to more mature skins where this process has slowed down.


Apply Liquid Gold onto cleansed skin each alternate evening. Moisten cotton pad with solution and apply to face, neck and décolletage. When the skin is touch-dry apply, you may apply your preferred Alpha-H moisturiser or serum. However, for an intensive treatment we recommend you do not follow with a moisturiser or serum.

Incorporating this into your routine:

Apply to cleansed skin every second evening, avoiding the delicate eye and lip areas. For an intensive treatment and optimum results, do not follow with a moisturiser or serum.

Love this product! It became my essential

5.0 rating

Love this! Even after the first use you notice a great change in the skin texture, becomes more even, firmer brighter and acne spots start to diminish. After the 2/3 week of use my skin looks great, I only use it twice a week because it is quite strong but I will definitely repurchase this, as it became one of my staples.

Best skin product I have ever come across

5.0 rating

Well I can absolutely see why this is a cult favourite, thankyou alpha-h it’s amazing! I’m 33 yrs old with acne scarring as well as moderate scarring from a car accident some year ago… well I should say with some previous scarring as after a few months of liquid gold it’s barely noticeable & my husband says my skin has never looked clearer.
It’s a glowing review for liquid gold from me, I only wish I’d discovered it sooner. I can’t wait to try more of your products Alpha-h they’ve been a game changer.

The best product I have come across!

I am now 30 years old and struggled with skin since I was 13.
I have spent 100s if not 1000s on different skin care over the years. I have tried cutting certain food groups out, having long breaks from makeup and even been prescribed the strongest antibiotics we produce in the UK for my breakouts. All of which made no difference.
I have used skin products from the same brand for the past 3 years and because it had ‘acne treatment’ I was determined it could not be that causing my ongoing breakouts. Until I come across APLHA A, which is amazing!
I use all of there skin products now and Wow, I cannot believe my skin!
Alpha H has totally changed my skin and given me so much confidence!
I have really deep set scars from my breakouts and Liquid Gold has worked miracles for these!
I hid behind my makeup for many years, still wearing it everyday on holiday in high temperatures as I was so embarrassed of my skin! Something I will no longer have to do, thanks to this amazing brand and their products!
Couldn’t recommend this fabulous brand anymore!

My skin has been acting up lately with acne, but Liquid Gold seems to calm it right down. I’ve only used it a few time without moisteriser and I wake up with clearer skin. Recommend!

Feels great on my dry/dehydrated skin

As a 40 year old woman who thought I had left it too late to take care of my skin the way I should have been years ago, this product is amazing. My skin is plump and glowing. The results are almost immediate. And it’s ease of use makes it even better.

I love it

5.0 rating

I thought this might make my skin feel dry as it says for a more intense treatment don’t follow with any serums or moisturisers… instead my skin feels amazing and it doesn’t feel dry at all! I love the fact that every second night I don’t need to apply anything else, I just wipe liquid gold on and I’m done! So easy and I can already notice a difference in my moisture and skin complexion after just 2 wks 🙂

My favourite skincare product ever!!!

I’ve just started using this product and have already noticed how my skin looks and feels so much smoother and ultra soft – with even tones. I’m 59 years old and have suffered with dry, sensitive skin. I have a new evening skin ritual of cleansing, then eye cream and Liquid Gold every other night. Just wonderful.

Wow! It’s been a long time since I have come across a product that I have been blown away with. My skin went through a bad patch, it was dull, red and patchy. So I thought I would give this product a go. It has completely transformed my skin in the short time I have been using it. My skin is smooth, bright, soft and just feels and looks fresh. I have had so many compliments from friends. It is my new Must-Have product and I can’t recommend it enough.
