Micro silver

Wirkstoff Silber

For the products of our silver line we are using micro silver.

We do not use nano silver in none of our products, which is suspected to penetrate into the skin.

 

 

Difference
 

Micro silver
Particles of highly porous silver have a size between 5 and 20 µm and thus are about 1000 times bigger than nanoparticles. Because of its size, these silver particles cannot penetrate into the skin and are therefore ideal for topical applications. Silver is used in ointments for external application – so also in the BIOTURM products. When applying, the micro silver conjoins with the skin’s proteins. The silver ions released remain in the upper dermal layers where they are neutralized. Studies did not show any deposits or traces of silver ions in deeper dermal layers. The product can be used on irritated skin areas without any concerns.

Nano silver (is not used in the BIOTURM products)
In contrary to highly porous silver, nano silver is much smaller and thus can penetrate into the skin. There are no final studies available about possible accumulation in case of regular use.

We do not use nano silver in none of our products, which is suspected to penetrate into the skin.

 

Effect

Micro silver is a special form of pure silver with a spongy increased surface. Due to the large surface, bacterial and viral germs as well as fungicides can be bound and rendered harmless. Besides the ability to bind harmful germs on the skin, the soothing effect of silver on irritated skin has been known for years. Micro silver has excellent properties: it has antipruritic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antimycotic effects. Therefore it is used successfully in therapy-related care of neurodermatitis and psoriasis and in case of impure skin.

Micro silver in nature

Micro silver is not harmful or dangerous for waters or the environment. Silver is a precious metal with natural resources not causing any environmental problems. The quantity of silver getting into the waste water is very small. Free silver ions can only be found for a short time, they immediately bind with proteins in waste water. From that point they are inert and not harmful for the organisms in sewage works.


Production

Micro silver is physically made of pure silver (special vacuum technique) and thus does not contain any chemical impurities. Due to this special technique, further steps to eliminate cytotoxic chemical residues are not required; that’s why it is perfectly suitable for application in medicine, cosmetics and food.
