SilvaPlex was created for the topical treatment of cuts, abrasions, lacerations and minor burns.
The naturally derived, non-toxic formula is free of odor, alcohol and Triclosan. Upon application SilvaPlex forms an invisible barrier against microbes while soothing inflamed skin on burns and reducing bleeding on cuts and abrasions.
How SilvaPlex works: The secret SilvaPlex is our patented technology, COMPLEX Ag 21. This proprietary Chitosan-Silver chelation allows SilvaPlex to attach to the wound like a magnet and form an invisible protective antimicrobial shield around it. This promotes faster and more compete healing.
Why Silver? Silver has a long and intriguing history as an antimicrobial in human health care. It has been developed for use in water purification, wound care, bone prostheses, re-constructive orthopedic surgery, cardiac devices, catheters and surgical appliances. It kills even antibiotic-resistant strains and also works on fungal infections. It stimulates bone-forming cells, cures the most common stubborn bacterial infections and stimulates healing in the skin and other soft tissues. As a result, regeneration of whole areas of lost skin is now accomplished with the use of silver treatments.
What is Chitosan (Ingredient in Complex Ag 21)? Chitosan is a natural polymer derived from shrimp shells. People or animals allergic to shrimp will have no reaction with the refined chitosan. The silver is processed to bond to the chitosan. The biodegradable film of the chitosan is cationic ( positively charged), which naturally bonds with anionic (negatively charged) animal skin. The result is an effective skin protective antimicrobial barrier that is naturally eliminated as the skin cells are shed.
