Using Colloidal Silver around the home

Colloidal Silver is well-known to support the immune system and to help fight infections with its antimicrobial properties.

But it may also be the best all-natural, environmentally-friendly household disinfectant you can use for the safety, health and wellbeing of your entire family. 

With its antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties, there are plenty of ways Colloidal Silver can be used to keep your home infection-free.

When Colloidal Silver encounters a virus, fungus, bacterium or any other single celled pathogen, it disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme. This effectively suffocates any bacteria, virus or fungus-producing cell, and they are unable to replicate.

See our article: What is Colloidal Silver?

A quick spray or wipe with Colloidal Silver is all you need to keep germs at bay. As it’s 100% natural, it doesn’t contain alcohol or any other chemicals, so it won’t dry out your skin, or leave any unwanted residue behind.

See below for ideas on how to use it around the home:

In the kitchen

Kitchen cloths and sponges can harbour all sorts of bacteria. Sanitise them regularly by lightly spraying with Colloidal Silver and then allow to dry.

Face masks

‘Maskne’ is a term for the acne flare-ups and skin irritation you can get from wearing a mask constantly. Bacteria can build up under a mask, which can lead to clogged pores, redness, and other skin conditions. You can alleviate this by staying hydrated, wearing a little less makeup, and washing your face regularly using a gentle cleanser.

If you wear a fabric mask, avoid synthetic fabrics, such as nylon or rayon, and wash it every day in hot soapy water. Allow to dry and then spray it with Colloidal Silver, as well as spraying a little on your face to avoid bacterial build-up. You can also spray it inside disposable masks for an extra layer of antibacterial protection.

What is Colloidal Silver?

Woman holding her arms out asking the question "What is Colloidal Silver?"

What is Colloidal Silver?

Ionic Colloidal Silver is very fine particles of 99.9% pure ionic silver suspended in purified water. It supports the immune system when the body is under attack and micro organisms cannot build up resistance to it.

Quite simply, silver interrupts the bacteria cell’s ability to form the chemical bonds essential to its survival.

It is often used as a natural alternative to antibiotics, as it has antimicrobial properties, which means it’s antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral. Colloidal silver has proven effective in killing many stubborn bacterial infections (including cold viruses) without the side effects of a pharmaceutical antibiotic.

Your immune system’s best friend

Colloidal Silver is suitable for the entire family, including pets, and there are no known interactions or side effects if taken as directed. Silver is a naturally occurring trace mineral found in our bodies and does not interact with any medication. It has been proven to promote the growth of new cells, enabling wounds to heal faster. Unlike other metals with antimicrobial properties, it is non-toxic.

Colloidal silver is suitable for the entire family. A must-have in your bathroom cabinet.

Batch verified

Manufactured to less than or equal to 10ppm (parts per million). Medsafe New Zealand requirements stipulate that Colloidal Silver liquid products contain a silver concentration of 10ppm or below. Skybright independently tests every batch to ensure our Ionic Colloidal Silver meets this requirement.

Antimicrobial properties

Ionic Colloidal Silver supports the immune system when the body is under attack. Silver has antimicrobial properties that work by disabling the specific enzyme that many forms of bacteria, viruses and fungi use for their own oxygen metabolism.

“This is my go-to product for use with the whole family including the animals. I’m certain it has saved us a number of trips to the doctor with early application. Great to have around the house, in the first aid kit and in your handbag.”
