Preservation and conservation course
Silver Citrate is an innovative system of conservation and preservation of Bionatural Jala cosmetic products, based on a liquid solution of microparticles of silver and citric acid.
It allows a prolonged retention of formulations, preserving them from external bacteriological action, while maintaining the natural ingredients in cosmetics which do not allow synthetic substances preservatives.
It has been tested in the laboratory that a low percentage of silver, with its antibacterial and antibiotic effectiveness, in combination with citric acid of plant origin, is able to prevent the attack of pathogens.

Effective against all strains of bacteria, fungi and harmful viruses which are destroyed by contact with the Silver Citrate formula.
In vitro, one can observe the germicidal effect of silver, which can kill many microorganisms, without damage to most complex life forms and human tissues.
How does it works
Many forms of bacteria, fungi and viruses use a specific enzyme for their metabolism.
The silver acts as a catalyst, disabling these enzymes and removing microorganisms. For primitive life forms, silver is as toxic as the most powerful chemical disinfectants and there is no pathogenic organism that can live in the presence of even minute traces of simple metallic silver. Laboratory tests show that destructive bacteria, viruses and fungi are removed within a few minutes.
Silver, in colloidal form, devoid of taste and smell, becomes edible and nontoxic to the human organism. It is extremely effective against influenza, parasites, infections and fermentation and long known as an aid for digestion of food in the gut at meal times.
Many allopathic medicine and homeopathic remedies containing percentages of silver are prescribed to treat a wide range of diseases.
Hippocrates, an ancient greek physician, who lived around the second half of 400 b. C. considered the father of medicine, wrote that silver had beneficial effects and healing properties.
Before 1938, silver in colloidal form was considered one of the cornerstones of antibiotic treatment before being replaced by the discovery of penicillin by Alexander Fleming.
Dermatologic and cosmetic applications
It is officially shown as silver is able to accelerate the reconstruction of skin tissues damaged by wounds and burns. Even at very low concentrations, the presence of silver is able to regenerate the surface layers of the epidermis marked by the natural aging process.
The return of silver in medicine dates from the early '70s, when Dr. Carl Moyer, chairman of the Washington Department of Surgery, received a contribution to further research of new dermatological treatments for burned victims.
Dr. Margraf, a biochemist, worked with Dr. Moyer and other surgeons to find an antiseptic strong enough and safe to use on large parts of the body. The result of their studies was to find hundreds of new medical uses of silver.
