Silver powder is known for its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It helps fight against various skin infections; and even in treating acne. It is also an important nutrient that assists in healthy renewal of skin cells. As such, it helps promote the healing of rashes, sun-burns and wounds. Its cooling property makes silver an effective soothing agent as well. It calms irritated and stressed out skin; as well as rejuvenates and nourishes even the most sensitive of skins. All of these beneficial effects are retained, even in the silver leaf’s finely-ground state, as pure silver dust.
