QNET fighting germs with the silver power
Our immune systems are being overwhelmed, overworked and over exposed to toxins and stresses of all kinds as now we are exposed to new chemicals in water and in the air that did not exist just a few years ago. Even though the Disinfectants, antiseptics and antibiotics are usually known as the first and second lines of defense to kill disease, however they are toxic to human beings – even their fumes are toxic.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) believes that hand hygiene is the primary measure to reduce infections. Through a global campaign called Save Lives: Clean your Hands, the WHO promotes the need to wash and disinfect hands as a method of controlling the spread of communicable diseases.
Since ancient times, silver has been highly regarded as a versatile healing tool, and as an effective and natural disinfectant. In ancient Greece, Rome, Phoenicia and Macedonia, it was used extensively to control infection while Hippocrates, the ‘Father of Medicine’ taught that silver healed wounds and controlled disease.
In World War I, before the advent of antibiotics, silver was an important weapon against disease on the battlefield, used on wounded soldiers. More recently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US approved a breathing tube with a fine coating of silver, after it was established that it reduced the risk of ventilator-associated pneumonia. Silver has also played an important role in the development of radiology and in improving wound healing. And that’s just one example of the many roles silver plays in medicine today.
In modern times however, many bacteria have become resistant to pharmaceutical antibiotics and silver is emerging once more as a germ killer. During the last several decades, the technology of silver as a germ fighter has continued to evolve. SilverSol® technology, patented in the USA by American Biotech Labs in 2007 is one of the most revolutionary developments in the use of silver for medicinal purposes. Known for its anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties, SilverSol is becoming popular in many new treatments. According to the U.S. patent (approved Nov. 2007), Silver Sol has the ability to destroy 143 types of bacteria, both forms of viruses, mold, yeast, and a limited number of parasites.
QNET’s BioSilver 22 Gel, an advanced skincare product uses SilverSol® Technology, featuring the power of engineered nano-silver that can be applied topically for cleansing, sanitizing or even as part of daily skincare routine. BioSilver 22 is a clear, odorless non-greasy gel that contains no alcohol or preservatives and does not dry the skin. It is recommended for external use on skin for treatment of acne, rashes, bruises, light burns and for various cleansing and sanitizing purposes.
Elisa Bacongallo, a 40-year old Finance Executive in the Philippines, had been dealing with chronic acne ravaging her face, neck and back for years. She tried multiple products, endorsed by international celebrities, recommended by her friends and prescribed by dermatologists and none of those worked for her. She also had to deal with the embarrassment and the low self-confidence brought by her persistent skin problem. A chance meeting with an old colleague led to her being advised to try Bio Silver 22 Gel. With doubt and reluctance, she purchased one tube. Her first few days of applying the product on her face brought no visible results but after one week of using it, she noticed that her acne was starting to dry up and her blemishes were clearing up. She saw the full transformation after one month of regular use. Today, her skin is clean, clear, hydrated, supple and glowing. QNET has recently launched the BioSilver 22 Gel for its customers in Egypt.
