When it comes to women’s search for eternal beauty, not much has changed over the last several millennia.
Women have always been on the lookout for potions
and healing secrets that promise to help preserve and restore
their natural youthfulness.
Of all the famous beauties from the legends of world history,
the Egyptian queen, Cleopatra, still remains synonymous with
alluring and eternal beauty.
One of Cleopatra’s favorite rejuvenating secrets was
to regularly slip into a bath of sour goat’s milk. While this
Egyptian beautifying practice may not be particularly appealing
(or practical) to the 21st century woman, there is good reason
to believe that Cleopatra was getting the right advice from her
Egyptian beauty advisor.
Sour milk contains lactic acid. Lactic acid is an alpha
hydroxy acid, slightly weaker than glycolic acid, which is
regularly used in superficial chemical peels today. Perhaps
Cleopatra was the first woman in history to popularize the skin
regenerating benefits of exfoliation.
If we fast-forward to modern times, the popularity of
chemical peels and exfoliation techniques have exploded in
popularity over the past two decades. Skin care professionals will
usually incorporate some kind of exfoliation process into their
basic facial treatments. It may be in the form of a light enzyme
peel or mask. It may also take the form of more aggressive
exfoliation treatments such as alpha hyrdoxy acids (AHA) peels,
retinoids, microdermabrasion or even laser resurfacing.
All these approaches are using variations on a theme of
exfoliation. Initiating a superficial injury and removing the
outer most layers of the skin will speed up cell turnover rate.
This causes new collagen to be produced as a part of the
body’s natural healing response.
This result produces a plumping and tightening effect on
the skin, softening of the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles,
an improvement in the appearance of scars and an evening
out of pigment issues.
This has been considered the gospel for skin rejuvenation
for almost 20 years. After all, if it was good enough for
Cleopatra, then it must be good enough for us, right? Well, not
exactly. More advanced skin research has revealed that there is
more to this story.
It now appears that regularly exfoliating the epidermis with
acidic peels, microdermabrasion, lasers, or any other type of
aggressive exfoliating methods may actually have the opposite
effect of what was intended. If not done properly, such
techniques may actually have the opposite effect and actually
contribute to aging the skin.
The purpose for chemical peeling and exfoliation is to
generate new skin cells. This occurs by first destroying the
outer damaged layers of the skin to remove old, dry, dead
skin cells. This irritation results in inflammation which then
supposedly induces new collagen production.
Any injury or skin procedure (including exfoliating scrubs,
chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and microdermabrasion),
which removes the stratum corneum, the first layer of your skin
causes micro-tears. This will, in turn, compromise the integrity
of the natural protective barrier. Without an intact skin barrier,
the skin may be more vulnerable to infection from bacteria,
viruses and molds.
Whenever there is a breach to the skin’s natural barrier
function, the skin is at risk. Various conditions can impair the
protective barrier such as severe dry and scaly skin; chapping
of the hands from abrasive detergents or irritants; increased
inflammatory factors associated with skin diseases such as
acne, psoriasis and eczema; and sunburn, windburn or minor
In order to achieve optimal results from any type of
exfoliation treatment, the skin must always be protected.
Facilitating the healing and repair of the skin’s barrier function,
calming inflammation and guarding against any sort of
infection are all necessary for lasting skin rejuvenation.
The Silver Solution
Dating back thousands of years, there was one healing approach
that had been widely used in Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Phoenician,
Macedonian and Chinese civilizations. This powerful healing
medicine was based upon the use of silver.
Hippocrates, the “father of medicine,” wrote in his medical
texts 2500 years ago that silver had beneficial healing and
anti-disease properties. He praised silver for its tissue repair
and wound healing abilities. Silver not only bestows powerful
anti-microbial effects it is also nature’s powerful antibiotic,
eliminating bacterial infections without initiating resistance. In
addition it is proven to kill virtually all forms of viruses, fungi,
and molds without any side effects.
Thanks to an advanced 21st century technology, a more
potent form of silver is now available in the form of a patented
nano-silver technology by American Biotech Labs (U.S.
Patent 7,135,195). This new form of silver is called Silver Sol
Traditional silver products, such as colloidal forms, work by
chemical action, requiring direct contact with microbes to have
any positive effect. Silver Sol Technology works by multi-modes
of action. One such mode is by a catalytic action, rather than by a
chemical action. This catalytic conversion allows the Silver Sol to
first destroy pathogens and then to instantaneously recharge and
“kill” again and again — like a rapid-fire machine gun, which make
this nano-silver form more effective than other forms of silver.
Silver Sol Technology is available both as a colorless,
odorless, tasteless liquid and as a gel, called ASAP gel. Both
forms can safely be used orally and topically. These nanosilver
products are truly impressive. First of all, they have a
broad-spectrum antimicrobial action. They effectively kill all
pathogenic bacteria they come in contact, even the deadly
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), while
leaving beneficial bacteria unscathed.
Silver Sol has the ability to inactivate all kinds of viruses at
the DNA/RNA level, thus preventing viral replication. It wields
the same powerful anti-pathogenic ability with fungus and
molds. The good news is that it does not interact with pharmaceuticals
In fact, has been found to work synergistically with
Just how effective is Silver Sol? Research shows that it
will kill all forms of pathogens (including fungus and mold)
within minutes. Silver Sol exhibits an extraordinary ability
to eliminate bacteria, viruses, molds and fungi as well as
enhance the immune system and provide rapid wound
healing from infections and burns. As our modern world
becomes more antibiotic resistant, the Silver Sol products
are the safest and most effective solutions to help combat all
kinds of pathogens that are found within our bodies and in
There is now one more important use for the Silver Sol
products. By integrating them into skin care treatments, they
profoundly help to protect and repair the skin.
Protect, Repair and Renew the Skin with Silver Sol
Silver Sol gel and liquid have a unique mechanism of action
that promotes skin healing by preventing infection, calming
inflammation, and promoting stem cell release and activation.
It will help to heal any abrasion or micro-tears to the skin.
Another really big plus for using ASAP gel is its ability to
reduce scarring! Because it is so effective in killing all pathogens,
the skin is able to quickly heal and with minimal scarring.
When it comes to skin rejuvenation, Mary Schook, makeup
artist-turned-skincare sensation, of M.S. Apothecary in
New York City is a renowned beauty expert. Mary is always on
the lookout for the best natural products for skin rejuvenation.
As an aesthetician, she has been concerned about the risks associated
with exfoliation techniques, especially from infection
and inflammation due to barrier disruption.
Since discovering the Silver Sol products, she found the
solution she was looking for. The Silver Sol liquid and gel have
become an integral part of her skin care treatments.
She always uses the ASAP gel as a precursor to any
treatment she may be doing where she is compromising the
skin’s barrier protection. The gel is also her secret weapon to
calm redness from inflammation. She is adamant the ASAP
gel should be used before and after all treatments. In fact she
always gives a tube of the gel to every client as they leave her
Mary is a big fan of the Silver Sol products because they
offer a myriad of ways for enhancing her treatments. “It is
my first-line of defense for both practitioner and client from
exposure to viruses and bacteria. I also use the gel as hand
sanitizer, which kills all bacteria for up to four hours. I also use the gel before and after all treatments.
Since using the gel, my patients
have never had any skin irritation or
