SilvaClear Skin Care is NOT - like nano-silver or chemical silver products
The vast majority of silver based antimicrobials are chemically based silver compounds consisting of a carrier material and silver ions (Ag+) (e.g. silver citrates, silver zeolites, silver glass ceramics, silver nitrate).
The antimicrobial lifespan with MicroSilver is much longer and more constant compared to chemically based silver antimicrobials which only have an initial predefined amount of silver ions with no possibility for a regeneration of more silver ions once the silver ions are used up.
Chemical silver compounds typically have a high initial antimicrobial effect which quickly diminishes over a relatively short time period.
The carriers of chemical silver compounds can be quickly emptied or alternatively blocked by the surrounding milieu which results in a much more limited lifespan and inconsistent antimicrobial effect in comparison to MicroSilver.
MicroSilver BG™ has an average particle size of 10 microns (i.e. MicroSilver is 10,000 times larger than a nanometer) A micro-sized particle is 1,000 times larger than a nano particle.
MicroSilver remains on top of the skin where it is needed to combat harmful bacteria that come into contact with skin throughout the day. MicroSilver will not penetrate skin or mucous membranes.
There is a lot of controversy and scrutiny by government regulatory organizations concerning nano materials and the potential health risks that these small particles can have on both humans and other living organisms. Nano particles will penetrate skin, get into the bloodstream and be transported throughout the body. This concerns scientists and the potential risks of nano materials are under debate and review by scientists and government regulatory organizations.
MicroSilver BG™ is the only pure silver additive that due to its large particle size completely avoids all of these issues and is totally safe for both humans and the environment.
