Activated Minerals™ Technology
Terrasil is the only skin treatment available that uses patented Activated Minerals, a blend of Silver Oxide, Zinc Oxide, and Mineral-rich clay. 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.
Our Activated Minerals are:
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.
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.
Mineral-rich clay has outstanding absorption and adsorption properties. It functions as an adsorbing binder in our Activated Minerals complex. When this clay is applied to damaged skin, it is able to absorb impurities—making it a great aid during skin restoration.
