A few years back, I started using a face wash that boasted the use of colloidal silver as an ingredient. I can attest that my skin looked much better as I used that wash. At the time, I had no idea what colloidal silver was or why it worked so well on my face. Today, I am going to answer the following questions.
- What is colloidal silver?
- Why is it so effective in skincare?
- How does LUXWORKS use colloidal silver in their luxury skincare products?
What is Colloidal Silver?
According to dermatologist Dr. Christina Soma, colloidal silver is a liquid solution that includes nano-size particles of silver. The particles are dispersed and suspended in water to create the solution and can be used topically on the skin. Colloidal silver may sound like a new trend, but believe it or not, colloidal silver has been around for centuries as a natural remedy. Colloidal silver isn’t even new to the world of skincare.
Why is Colloidal Silver so Effective in Healthcare?
Since the days of Hippocrates, colloidal silver has been used as an antimicrobial agent. An antimicrobial agent can kill microorganisms or at least stop their growth. Microorganisms are more commonly known as bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Therefore, when used as a skincare ingredient, colloidal silver can potentially kill the bacteria on your face that causes unwanted skin conditions.
Some of these skin conditions could include:
Colloidal silver could also potentially treat signs of aging due to its ability to decrease irritant effects caused by oxidative stress. It also stimulates elasticity which helps slow down the aging process.
According to the Stack World, colloidal silver is safe for day and night use. Colloidal silver is believed to work best when used in a “leave-on” product. These types of products may include masks, moisturisers, and mists. Speaking of mists…
How does LUXWORKS use colloidal silver in their luxury skincare products?
Lux Works has a Face Refresh Spray that utilises the power of rose water and colloidal silver. The spray has a 4.9 overall rating on LUXWORKS website and is described as the “ultimate hydration for your face.” Some of the spray’s features include:
- 100% Natural Skincare
- Colloidal Silver is New Zealand made
The whole ingredient list is minimal, which is a good sign that the skin care product is natural. The list includes rosewater and colloidal silver. That's it!
We already talked about the benefits of colloidal silver and how they get rid of those nasty microorganisms. The rose water is where this spray gets its powers of hydration!
Colloidal silver may be a lesser-known force in the skincare community, but it is undoubtedly powerful! With its ability to remove microorganisms, decrease the effects of oxidative stress, and promote elasticity, it's no wonder that colloidal silver is starting to get a positive reputation in skincare.
