(We're big fans of silver here at TWiiSH)
Yes, silver (colloidal silver, to be exact). Sounds funny? Maybe.
But if you aren't familiar with silver and its skin benefits, there's a lot of science behind the ingredient that makes it star worthy. As a beauty editor, our founder, Elise, often turned to silver over and over for every little beauty ailment once she learned of its magic powers. She'd apply a layer of silver gel whenever she had a pimple. Razor burn? It got dabbed with silver. A nasty rash or red spot? Silver again. You get where we are going with this.
While silver has a track record for being a wound-healing ingredient, its hidden talent is that has an anti-bacterial effect on the bacteria that causes blemishes. Of course, keeping pimple-causing bacteria under control means keeping your skin clear. Plus, silver helps calm the skin, and it won't compromise the skin barrier, either.
Silver 101: The Benefits
Unlike other harsh ingredients typically found in anti-pimple products, silver is more gentle on the skin, so you won't experience any redness, peeling, dryness, or flaking.
One reason why we made silver a hero ingredient in TWiiSH is that it plays well with other zit-blasting ingredients, like salicylic acid. It also pairs nicely with moisturizing ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid.
It's also a calming ingredient that helps take down redness and skin flare-ups without causing any drama with your skin's defenses.
