Terrasil is the only skin treatment available that uses patented Activated Minerals, a blend of Silver Oxide, Zinc Oxide, Magnesium Oxide, and Volcanic Clay (Bentonite). This technology was developed to facilitate faster, directed delivery of active pharmaceutical ingredients to significantly enhance their performance. In addition to their drug delivery properties, each of the ingredients that comprise Activated Minerals have specific skin care benefits. See text below for specific details.
Silver Oxide, a positively charged compound of Silver and Oxygen, is a multivalent compound that works synergistically with the other compounds of our Activated Minerals™ technology. Its powerful attraction to negatively charged ions helps to target and accelerate the delivery of active ingredients to the root of the skin infection. It naturally has a +1 and +3 charge.
Zinc Oxide, a combination of Zinc and Oxygen, is a positively charged compound that plays a key function in our Activated Minerals technology. In addition, Zinc Oxide has great skin protectant qualities and numerous studies indicate that it has other outstanding medicinal properties to benefit skin health.
Magnesium Oxide is a positively charged compound of Magnesium and Oxygen that works in concert with our other Activated Minerals. Studies show that Magnesium Oxide also promotes cell health, supporting over 300 enzyme systems that regulate essential biochemical reactions. This makes it a key player in skin restoration.
Bentonite has outstanding absorption and adsorption properties. It functions as an adsorbing binder in our Activated Minerals complex. When bentonite is applied to damaged skin, it is able to absorb impurities—making it a great aid during skin restoration.
