Antibacterial products recently have attracted a great deal of attention in industries. For example, they are particularly used as epilation pad in cosmetic industry.
Cosmetics Epilasion


This product is an antibacterial epilation pad containing silver nanoparticles. Silver ion concentration in it is less than 5 ppm. It shows a remarkable antibacterial activity on Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. In nano-dimension, antibacterial effect of silver increases significantly, so that they are able to destroy over 650 bacterial species. It is reported that these nanoparticles have significant antifungal activities against some ringworms. Ag nanoparticles interact with sulfur and phosphorus compounds of membrane proteins affecting cell morphology and structure, causing its death. With decreasing particle size, the release of silver ions increases, leading to increasing their antibacterial activities.

Manufacturer's Description

With growth in world population and the spread of disease, the number of antibiotic resistant microorganisms is rising along with the occurrence of infections from these microorganisms. With this increase in health awareness, many people focused their attention on educating and protecting themselves against harmful pathogens. Silver ions and compounds are highly toxic for a wide range of bacteria and they show very low toxicity for human cells. So that, the use of silver in different forms has been a common method for antibacterial protection. It is important to remark that the antibacterial effect of polymer-silver nanocomposit is preserved and good antibacterial efficiency against a wide variety of bacteria is observed.
