MicroSilver BG

What is MicroSilver BGTM


Even thousands of years ago, people used the antimicrobial effects of silver ions without knowing it. In medical fields, products that contain silver are used especially in wound care today to prevent infections. Cosmetics also use the special powers of silver particles to inhibit microbial growth.



Not all silver is the same


GEHWOL med Sensitive uses highly purified MicroSilver BGTM . MicroSilver BG™ is a National Product Association- (NPA) and ECOCERT-certified, skin- and environmentally-friendly cosmetic active substance. MicroSilver BG™ forms a kind of deposit in the skin folds after it is applied. From there, it releases its silver ions at a carefully dosed rate and regenerates the skin flora in this way. MicroSilver BGTM has significant advantages compared to even smaller silver particles, such as nanosilver, which is also used in cosmetic and medicinal products. Microsilver particles are larger and unlike nanosilver, do not penetrate the skin. Since silver ions are only formed on the surface of the particles, MicroSilver BG™ is also better able to infiltrate bacteria and fungi with silver ions in the long term than customary silver powder with a significantly lesser surface area, for example.
