What is Silver First Aid Gel?

Silver First Aid Gel is composed of three primary ingredients: homeopathic silver; bioactive silver hydrosol, which is composed of 99.999 percent pure silver; and USP23, pharmaceutical-grade purified water. Silver hydrosol contains silver nanoclusters that are extremely small and, when combined with other ingredients, can be the most effective and bioactive of the colloidal silver options on the market. 

Two other ingredients present in minute amounts in Silver First Aid Gel are food-grade carbopol and sodium hydroxide. Carbopol is added to help transform the liquid into a gel so it can be applied to the skin. Sodium hydroxide is used to modify the pH of the gel so it is compatible with the skin.

One of the most common questions is whether Silver First Aid Gel can be applied directly to open wounds. Several studies have evaluated the use of silver-containing dressings for healing wounds and skin ulcers. 

In a 2018 study from Iran, for example, the authors found that topical colloidal silver reduced skin inflammation during healing and increased how fast the skin regrew when compared with patients who were given a placebo.

In another study, a colloidal silver gel was used to successfully manage superficial pellet gun wounds.

Common Uses for Silver First Aid Gel 

Skinned knees, bug bites, burns, hemorrhoids, cuts, and bruises–we reach into the medicine cabinet or first aid kit for many common health concerns. If you need to take care of everyday skin irritations, then Silver First Aid Gel may help. The use of the gel helps keep minor skin infection in check and relieves pain, which then allows wounds and skin irritations to heal quickly. For example:
