Is Nanosilver Good for Your Skin?

There are numerous ingredients and products available to help improve the health and appearance of the skin. Silver-containing products are one option that some people may prefer. As previously stated, there is some evidence that silver ions have antimicrobial properties and may be beneficial in the treatment of certain skin conditions. More research is needed, however, to fully understand the safety and efficacy of using silver ions on the skin.

Before using any new products on your skin, it is always a good idea to do your own research and consult with a healthcare provider, especially if you have sensitive skin / dry skin or are using the product to treat a specific condition. They can advise you on how to use a product safely and help you determine if it is appropriate for your needs. Before using a new product all over your skin, try a small patch test to see how your skin reacts. There are numerous options for achieving a healthy complexion these days, including retinol, tea tree oil, hyaluronic acid, CBD oil, niacinamide, and vitamin C. Silver, on the other hand, is a skin-saving superhero who is still relatively unknown.

 

Silver’s antimicrobial properties have made it a medical staple for more than a century. But, given silver’s skin-soothing properties, it’s surprising that silver products haven’t taken over the aisles of Ulta, Sephora, and every department stores beauty section.

 

What benefits does silver have for your skin? Silver, according to research, has the potential to help with everything from inflammation to acne to aging. Here are some of the specific advantages of incorporating silver into your skincare routine. 

How Silver Stands to Benefit Your Skin

Because silver is a powerful antimicrobial, it has been used for years in wound dressings, creams, and coatings for medical devices. Until the 1940s, colloidal silver, in particular, was widely used for cleaning wounds and treating infections.

What exactly is colloidal silver?

It’s made up of water and small silver particles. Colloidal silver is now commonly referred to as nanosilver (although, not everything labeled “colloidal silver” qualifies as nanosilver). Nanosilver contains extremely small silver particles (less than 100 nanometers).

 

Nanosilver formulas have been shown to improve skin health. According to a 2019 review of research, nanosilver can help combat skin infections, promote healing, and reduce skin inflammation. Indeed, according to this review, nanosilver cream is an effective treatment for inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and contact dermatitis. In animal studies, it was just as effective as common treatments like steroids and immunosuppressants.

 

Obviously, nanosilver’s antimicrobial properties make it effective against skin infections. They may, however, make it effective against one of the most common skin problems: acne. When oil and bacteria become trapped in your pores, they cause breakouts. Because nanosilver has been shown in numerous studies to reduce bacteria on the skin, it has significant acne-fighting potential.

 

Nanosilver’s ability to heal wounds may also make it an effective anti-aging treatment. According to research, applying silver to wounds causes tissues to repair and regenerate. As a result, silver is frequently applied topically to burns. 

 

However, in those who do not have wounds, this regenerative effect may help build new healthy tissue and collagen. Your body’s stem cell production and function begin to decline as you age, and tissues do not regenerate as well. This decrease in regeneration causes collagen loss, which results in wrinkles and saggy skin. If nanosilver can improve skin regeneration, it may be able to support more youthful-looking skin as you age.

 

Is Silver Safe To Apply To Your Skin?

Silver sounds like an excellent addition to your skincare arsenal, doesn’t it? However, after doing a little more internet research on silver, you may begin to wonder whether it is safe.

Concerns about silver’s safety stem primarily from one factor: the risk of argyria. Argyria is a condition in which silver particles accumulate in the body, turning the skin bluish-gray. It usually appears in people who consume a lot of silver on a daily basis. Why would anyone do such a thing?


Because silver is such a powerful antimicrobial, many people use it internally to treat and prevent a wide range of health problems. There is a risk of argyria depending on the dosage and type of silver they take internally. However, it only occurs in extreme cases where people consume large amounts of silver on a daily basis. It only happens with certain types of silver. You shouldn’t be concerned about argyria if you use small amounts of nanosilver on your skin.

 

In fact, one of the most significant advantages of nanosilver is that it does not accumulate in the body. Silver nanoparticles’ unique size and structure allow them to move freely through the body without interacting with other elements, which means they don’t accumulate in tissues.

 

We believe nanosilver is extremely safe, especially when used externally, because it provides antimicrobial benefits without accumulating in the body. After all, you’re applying small amounts of silver to your skin rather than swallowing.

 

Introducing Nanosilver Hand Sanitizer For Dry & Sensitive Skin

When it comes to supporting hygienic skin, silver clearly has a lot of potential. That’s why we thought it’d be a great addition to naturally protecting yourself against germs as a hand sanitiser for dry skin and a hand sanitiser for sensitive skin.


Our Nanosilver hand sanitizer sprays of the future, are deionized solutions containing millions of nanosilver particles that kill pathogens and bacteria. The formula is chemical and alcohol free, and it kills 99.9% of germs in 30 seconds. It uses the same simple, clean, and natural ingredients as the originals, making it a great skin friendly hand sanitizer. 

 

The nanosilver ions used in our Nanosilver have been supported by several independent, third-party studies, are not metabolized by the body, and are easily excreted with no residual buildup. 

 

Our Nanosilver contains 50 parts per million (ppm) of silver ions in each bottle. That means silver accounts for only 0.005% of each bottle. That’s a very safe but still highly effective amount that will make a difference in how you naturally protect yourself.
