What are the properties, effects and benefits of Microsilver? We explain the uses of microsilver in essential pet care products.
Medical Properties of Silver
Silver has been used in wound care since the twentieth century. It is known to have antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Because of this, twentieth-century doctors would often use silver sutures to reduce the risk of infection.
Currently, silver is still being used for medical as well as cosmetic purposes. The most common use of silver would be in antibacterial cream.
Mechanism of Action
Silver has an oligodynamic effect. This means that it is toxic to bacteria, algae and fungi. The silver particles continuously release positive ions which disrupt pathogenic bacteria. The ions destabilise the bacterial structure, break down key enzyme systems in cell membranes, cut off enzymatic nutrients and prevent cell proliferation.
What is Microsilver?
Microsilver is a special form of pure silver with a spongy increased surface. Due to its larger size(10-6), it does not penetrate the skin. Instead, the silver ions remain in the upper dermal layers of the skin, where they are neutralised.
Microsilver in Pet Care Products
Microsilver is incorporated into modern pet care products as a precious substance with multiple beneficial properties:
- Cleanses the applied area
- Soothes irritation
- Heals wounds by restoring skin’s natural barrier
- Microflora-optimising substance
- Antimicrobial effect
Microsilver can be used for prevention, regeneration and revitalisation. It can be found in LILA LOVES IT’s silver range products. All silver products contain high-quality microsilver along with other organic ingredients to enhance the beneficial effects.
