In recent weeks, we talked a lot about how silver can help inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. And while that remains true, the benefits of silver aren’t limited to germ control. Silver can benefit various parts of and systems within the body, including your skin.
1. Antimicrobial Agent
Silver is known to contain properties that are effective at inhibiting bacteria; it has also been recognized as an antimicrobial agent. Studies show that silver can help deter 99% of bacteria and viruses while also preventing the growth of mold and fungi. For that reason, silver products, including silver spritzes, are an excellent choice when it comes to not only household cleaning solutions, but also, and very effectively for skin and body care.
This is particularly true when you consider the root cause of so many skin ailments, which often stem from bacteria growth. If this growth remains untreated, it can lead to painful skin conditions. TRU47 Silver Spritz sprays can help protect and stop the growth of germs and bacteria before they even have the chance to damage delicate skin cells.
Aside from leaving skin vulnerable to infection, bacteria can also lead to and exacerbate condition that results in inflammation.
Inflammation, which often appears as patches of skin that are itchy, red, hot, or blistering, can be painful. Inflammation can also lead to common skin maladies, like acne and redness, and other dermatological conditions, including rosacea and long-term scarring.
It is a well-documented fact that silver has additionally been used for years as an effective and safe soothing agent for burn victims. Silver maintains anti-inflammatory properties, which can reduce inflammation and redness while offering long-term relief from itching, burning, and other common symptoms associated with chronic inflammation.
3. Healing Properties
Silver doesn’t just help keep skin healthy by eliminating bacteria and inflammation; it has also been shown to aid in the healing process. Silver’s role as a healing agent isn’t new, however. It has an impressive history, with some of the earliest known uses dating back to ancient Easter and Middle Easter societies - as far back as 702 A.D, in some cases. Silver is still commonly used in modern wound care and continues to gain popularity in many wellness communities.
4. Gentle on the Skin
Finding a sanitizing solution that doesn’t lead to dry, irritated, and painful skin is challenging. The same can be said of trying to find products that don’t exacerbate existing conditions. This is especially true of cleaners, sanitizers, and other products formulated to benefit skin can often include harsh chemicals, including alcohol.

And, not to forget our four-legged friends, dogs can benefit as well from all the benefits of a Silver Spritz.

5. Portable Protection
