We chose nano silver, a form of colloidal silver that's incredibly safe and highly effective.
When we were deciding what type of silver to add to Redmond Clay Facial Mud and Charcoal Masks, we did a lot of research. We wanted something that was incredibly safe and highly effective. Our research led us to nano silver.
What is nano silver, exactly?
It's a mixture of water and tiny silver particles. The silver particles in nano silver are tinier than what you find in other forms of colloidal silver (less than 100 nm), and their minuscule size gives nano silver bigger benefits.
Nano silver formulas, for example, have been shown to have specific benefits when it comes to skin health. Research shows that nano silver can help reduce bacteria and inflammation on skin, which means it could offer support for a wide variety of skin conditions.
Is silver safe?
Even though we believe that nano silver has some amazing properties for skin health, we also realize it’s one of those ingredients that people have questions about. Maybe you’ve heard stories of the “Blue Man” who drank large amounts of colloidal silver each day. We have too.
But the nano silver in our Facial Mud and Charcoal Masks is completely different for a few reasons. First off, the type of colloidal silver we’ve chosen isn’t metabolized by the body and is easily excreted without any residual buildup.
Second off, our Facial Mud and Masks contain a minuscule amount of silver. Each tube of Earthpaste contains 5 parts per million (ppm) of nano silver. That means silver only makes up .0005% of each tube.
And as the frosting on top of the organic cake, you’re not eating our Facial Mud or Charcoal Masks. So, the amount of silver you’re being exposed to is much, much smaller than someone who’s drinking the stuff daily. Still have questions? Reach out and let us know. We’re here to help!
