The antimicrobial mode of action of silver is well known and is attributed to silver ions. There are numerous forms of silver including silver salts, silver zeolites, silver glass ceramics, nanosilver / colloidal silver suspensions and more recently a pure silver additive consisting of highly porous and micronized silver particles. Although each silver technology relies on silver ions the delivery system, antimicrobial sustainability, effectiveness and safety of each technology varies greatly. In cosmetics, skincare and oral care applications there are several key advantages of using a pure silver additive that consists of large micronized and porous silver particles.The presentation will involve an overview of:► silver additives► the antimicrobial mode of action of silver► The advantages of using a pure silver additive with micronized and porous silver particles:** no skin penetration, no negative impact on skin flora, long-lasting antimicrobial action on top of the skin, natural product preservation, color stability ► efficacy studies **acne, dermatitis, skin recovery after skincare treatments, toothpaste, wound care► preservative effects► discussion on skin floraBio: Karl Richter.

You Asked: How much salt is too much?Joe Schwarcz: Article complements of "The McGill Office for Science & Society (OSS)Reducing sodium intake has been a nutritional mantra for decades. We have repeatedly been told that cutting back on salt lowers blood pressure which in turn lowers the risk of heart attacks and strokes. But these days it seems to be in vogue to question almost every type of dietary advice that has been dispensed by health authorities, including salt intake.
