A variety of wound care techniques use silver for healing a wound. The most important role of a wound care product is to create an optimum condition for the wound to heal. A protected and appropriately moist environment.
Throughout history silver has been used for treating various diseases and infections, to disinfect water and food, as well as treat burns and wounds. Today, silver-containing products are well established antiseptics. Silver acts as an antiseptic because its ions are active and can penetrate bacterial membranes.
Silver as an element has proven to be antibacterial and protective against a lot of different kinds of germs and bacteria. Wound healing using silver ions works very efficiently even in low concentration and has been proven to cause faster healing than usual. Read on to find out how Silver Ion Healing Technology works and how we have used it in our product to give you a superior wound healing experience that is up to 50%* faster than regular healing.
A cutting-edge wound healing technology where, the attack is soft on the skin but harsh and on the bacteria can be seen in silver ion healing. The charged silver ions are positive in nature, and therefore they naturally attach themselves to the negatively charged dirt and bacteria particles on the wound. What this does for faster healing of the wound is,
Inhibition of DNA replication – Bacteria cannot multiply therefore reducing the risk of infection.
Destruction of cell membranes – The cell membranes of a wide spectrum of bacteria can be broken down causing their elimination.
Inhibition of enzymes – This prevents the spreading of these bacteria any further as it destroys their energy sources, inhibits movement and replication.
