Body Empire’s Antibacterial Tonic contains Ectoin – a natural compound that is extracted from special types of bacteria (extremophiles), which provides this mixture with soothing, water-binding and anti-inflammatory properties. The extremophiles are microorganisms that live in extremely harsh environmental conditions, such as geysers, salt lakes, deserts, etc. In order to be able to sustain themselves in such environment, these microorganisms produce Ectoin – a substance that protects them from harmfully environmental effects like high temperature, dryness, ultraviolet radiation and so on.
Ectoin allows its original owners (extremophiles) to survive in very harsh environment, but it is also very advantageous to humans – when applied to our skin cells, it gives fantastic stabilising and protecting effect. Ectoin is often used as a superior allergy relief – owing to its water-binding capabilities, it moisturises the skin formidably, thus reducing skin irritations and roughness. It is skin’s natural ally in fighting allergy symptoms. It also protects against UV exposure and skin dryness.
Depending on the location where they live, these extremophiles are divided into the following subgroups:
- Thermophiles (found in hot geysers and volcanoes)
- Halophiles (found in salt lakes)
- Psychrophiles (found under the surface of the Arctic ice)
Ectoin gives protecting and stabilising effect also when applied to human cells. Therefore, it is used as an effective allergy relief; its use is also common in dermatology – mainly in relieving the symptoms and treatment of atopic dermatitis. The studies in which Ectoin was used have confirmed that owing to its unique properties of binding water, this molecule moisturises the skin, reduces irritations and skin roughness. Thanks to its frequent use in treating allergic diseases, Ectoin has gained much recognition from outstanding specialists in the field of allergology and dermatology.
D-Panthenol is an additive to provitamin B5 that soothes and moisturises the skin while accelerating renewal of the epidermis.
It is otherwise known as Witch Hazel extract – it is used in cosmetics for the following reasons:

- Ittightenspores, has antioxidant properties – tannins and flavonoids exhibit antioxidant activity;
- It fights free radicals and helps eliminate puffiness, shrinks dark circles as it contains tannins, which has strong astringent properties to accelerates wound healing, e.g. bite
The ingredient that exhibits anti-irritant and skin moisturising properties in our product and which is responsible for skin protection is Allantoin – Glyoxylic Acid, extracted naturally from the comfrey plant or derived from urea. Due to its affinity to proteins and ammonium character, Allantoin is also responsible for the removal of dead skin cells and for softening the skin. Furthermore, it assists the skin in wound healing and is very effective in eliminating skin discolorations, relieves symptoms of psoriasis, acts anti-inflammatory, astringent and accelerates skin regeneration.
Allantoin is primarily used as a granulation stimulant, i.e. it is responsible for the formation of new connective tissue containing a rich network of capillaries, and for accelerated healing of wounds. Therefore, preparations containing Allantoin are used in patients with hard-to-heal wounds, leg ulcers and patients with an increased risk of pressure sores, inflammation and psoriasis. Allantoin is a derivative of urea. Its ammonium character and affinity to proteins enable it to penetrate easily into the epidermis, where it softens and removes dead skin cells. This substance can be very often found in preparations that are targeted to remove scars, e.g. those used after acne treatment or to eliminate skin discoloration. For a visible effect, it needs to be used for several months. Most of all, this substance relieves skin irritations caused by contact with washing up liquid, washing powder, soap and other substances with alkaline or acidic PH. It protects the skin from minor wounds, damages, abrasions and sunburn.
It reduces the growth of microorganisms responsible for the formation of Acne and dandruff, as well as acts soothingly and anti-inflammatory. It is a natural prebiotic.
Colloidal Silver has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, astringent and normalising action. It regenerates and moisturises the skin and soothes irritations. It is suitable for all skin types, especially for acne skin.
The bactericidal properties of silver were already utilized in the ancient times. Food and drinks were stored in silver vessels which protected them against the growth of harmful microorganisms, while ancient medicine has seen silver used in the treatment of wounds and bacterial infections. Colloidal Silver is in the form of positive ions suspended in water. It is, therefore, a solution in which silver particles are uniformly distributed throughout its volume. Colloidal Silver is the only safe form of supplementation of this element. It is non-toxic and does not accumulate in the body. Colloidal Silver is considered to be the most efficient remedy in fighting pathogens – it is capable of killing more than 650 types of bacteria (including staphylococcus), fungi and viruses. In addition, pathogens do not develop resistance to silver particles, which is the case with antibiotics. Colloidal Silver also has anti-inflammatory and regenerating action – it supports the renewal of soft tissue, and also strengthens overall natural body resistance.
The history of use of Colloidal Silver dates back to the times of ancient Greece – Hippocrates himself is known to have written works on usage of silver in wound treatment. Thanks to silver’s bioactivity, it might prove useful in reducing infections because when sufficiently concentrated – it kills bacteria in vitro. Throughout the ages, silver was used as a disinfectant and germicide – well until the 1940s. However, with the invention and development of antibiotics, the use of Colloidal Silver lessened to a marginal degree, eventually becoming an alternative medicine. The silver still remains in mainstream use to some, although rather minor, degree. This is owing to the development of the antibiotic sodium sulfadiazine in 1968, which when combined with silver particles, forms so-called silver sulfadiazine (or SSD), which is used in treating external infections until these days.
The early 1990s had seen a major comeback of silver onto the world’s medical scene, when more and more people started seeking better alternatives to different forms of antibiotics. The latter, as is commonly known, are causing the death of not only the bad, but also the good bacteria (a.k.a. gastrointestinal friendly bacteria), which in turn destroys patient’s immune system.
How can we be sure that Colloidal Silver actually does us any good? The best answer to that is its constant use through hundreds of years, where it successfully helped treating people all over the world. Even though many modern hospitals in the USA or the UK refuse to include Colloidal silver into the list of officially approved medications (as antibiotics still play a central part), they still use filters with silver particles to filter their hot water, which helps them defeat Legionella and MRSA (or methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus) infections. Such filtration method is feasible to carry out because electrolytically-dissolved silver can be used as waster-disinfecting agent, which is understandable, given silver’s water-purifying properties.
So how does actually Colloidal Silver work?
It consists of silver atoms, which are suspended in distilled water, which is free of any contaminants and ion-less. These silver particles are small enough for a cellular-level penetration, which enables them to destroy various pathogens, such as bacteria, parasites, fungal spores or viruses. The great thing about Colloidal Silver is that even though it’s absolutely deadly to all the culprits mentioned before, it is completely safe for humans. This is one of the reasons, why silver remained in use for centuries and has stopped being the most popular remedy in destroying harmful bacteria only after the invention of antibiotics, which, in fact, aren’t as fabulous as many people might think they are.
The main reason for Colloidal Silver’s high efficiency in fighting harmful bacteria is the oligodynamic effect and silver’s toxicity for bacteria, fungi and algae, which it destroys in vitro. The similar oligodynamic effect may also be observed in other heavy metals (for example lead or mercury). However silver varies from them in this, that it’s the least toxic for humans. Depending on the biological activity of silver ion, the silver compounds are capable of damaging key enzyme systems that belong to cell membranes of different pathogens. Thus, the whole antibacterial action of the silver compound relies on this silver ion – it can be more effective if an electric field is present. There is a strong correlation between the strength of the electric current and the antibiotic action that can be observed at the anode – this is most likely caused by the release of silver into the bacteria, which was triggered by the electric field.
Apart from the most common use of Colloidal Silver, which is meant to prevent infections as well as promote faster tissue healing without leaving any scares, it can also be used as a spray to treat ringworm, herpes sores, boils or make warts heal faster. Furthermore, one might discover its positive effects in treating walking pneumonia or bronchial problems (when breathing Colloidal Silver through a nebulizer). It is also generally accepted, that Colloidal Silver successfully combats MRSA infections, which is ever harder to fight with general use antibiotics. With just a few drops of Colloidal Silver even treating an ear infection, is easy! The same goes for oral thrush, vaginal yeast infection or chronic jock itch – with a short Colloidal Silver therapy all these problems can be quickly overcome! The best thing of all is naturally the fact that Colloidal Silver brings absolutely no harm to the patient – it leaves the “good bacteria” intact, while killing all the others. One might even use Colloidal Silver with an early onset of cold, bronchitis or flu.
Since Colloidal Silver has such wonderful antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties, it is ideal to treat the skin disorder of Rosacea, no matter how far it has developed. Many people keep using this extraordinary preparation for their Rosacea acne – it can even reduce the extra tissue and treat red bulbous nose that appears among people affected by phymatous Rosacea. You will notice that Colloidal Silver copes much better with any subtype of Rosacea and that it does it much faster too!
However, using Colloidal Silver in these modern times isn’t as unproblematic as one could think. Due to a very strong position of the pharmaceutical lobby, which has its own interests in backing their medications, various antibiotics are promoted as the one and only remedy against harmful pathogens. Even though so many of the officially approved medications no longer can cope with certain kinds of bacteria, which has mutated and became immune to the most common antibiotics, the use of Colloidal Silver is not only discouraged but in many places also forbidden! One has to keep in mind that where the huge money is in play, the interests of patients not always come first. For that reason, the Colloidal Silver can now only be bought as a dietary supplement, rather than a regular drug used for more effective treatment of infections and as anti-bacteria or anti-fungal remedy.
