BeautyGold: certified production of gold and silver for cosmetic use

The BeautyGold division has recently obtained the confirmation of three major certifications for the production of cosmetic gold and silver:

  1. ISO 9001: Giusto Manetti Battiloro’s quality management system for the production of gold and silver leaves for cosmetic use, gold- and silver-based ingredients for the cosmetic industry, and the marketing of cosmetic creams continues to adhere to this international standard.
  2. EFfCI GMP: The EFfCI GMP certification ensures that the production of gold- and silver-based ingredients, including powders, glitters, and flakes, adheres to the industry’s good manufacturing practices.
  3. ISO 22716: This certification concerns good cosmetic manufacturing processes, covering the production and marketing of silver- and gold-based leaf products.

These certifications underscore BeautyGold’s commitment to ensuring safe, effective, and high-quality cosmetic products, complying with stringent international standards and regulations.

Gold Chef: certified production of edible gold and silver

The Gold Chef division has renovated the ISO 9001:2015 and FSSC 22000 certifications for the production of edible gold and silver:

  1. ISO 9001:2015: This certification ensures that every production step is continuously monitored and improved in compliance with this international standard.
  2. FSSC 22000: based on ISO 22000:2018, this certification ensures that Gold Chef’s food safety management system complies with the regulations in force, guaranteeing product safety from melting to packaging.

In addition to these certifications, Giusto Manetti Battiloro is Kosher-Parve-certified, as it adheres to particular production practices. Every year, an external body audits Gold Chef’s gold and silver to ensure its adherence to purity requirements, which exceed the EU standards.

The Italian Ministry of Health has authorised our production plant in Campi Bisenzio (Florence), making us the only producer of edible gold and silver in the world.


For BeautyGold and Gold Chef divisions, maintaining these certifications underscores Giusto Manetti Battiloro’s commitment to high standards, ensuring excellent products for food and cosmetic use. We will keep innovating by complying with stringent regulations and carrying out regular third-party audits to provide the highest levels of quality and safety.
