Gray hair, wrinkles, crow’s feet, skin that’s saggy, dull and dry, varicose veins and other signs of aging creeping up on you? If you’re like me and you’re concerned about aging more gracefully. Pay attention, today we are going to learn about Colloidal Copper, a skincare ingredient that many refer to as “The Fountain of Youth” due to its many benefits for the skin.
What is it you may ask?
Simply put, Copper suspended in purified water using electrical current creates Colloidal Copper. Colloidal Cooper probably might seem new on the scene to most people, but for many centuries people applied topically or internally finely ground copper, mixed in water or other substances. The discovery of colloidal copper in the 19th century greatly enhanced the effectiveness of copper usage. Being in suspension, the particle sizes of colloidal copper are smaller than membrane pores in the human body. The properties of copper allow it to travel throughout the body and reach cells that need it.
Historical Uses of Colloidal Copper
Ancient records indicate that copper came into use as the first non-precious metal around 4500 BC in Mesopotamia. Copper can naturally occur in relatively pure forms which led to its early discovery and use. Copper, the first metals used by humans, continues to demonstrate its uses in modern times.
The first medical uses of copper date back to Egyptian records around 2000 BC. Records from civilizations throughout the years depict many medical uses for copper. Today, copper jewelry, found in most health food stores works as a remedy for arthritis and joint pain as well as other ailments when you wear it directly on the skin.
Also in 480 to 360 BC, the Greek physicians recommended colloidal copper for the treatment of leg ulcers associated with varicose veins as well as the prevention for infection in wounds. Later in 23 to 79 A.D; Colloidal Copper with Honey was a treatment intestinal worms and furthermore, eye conditions and mouth ulcers received colloidal copper treatments.
Copper is very versatile and it was used throughout history in many other ways including decorative items, ornaments, jewelry, alloys, and electrical wiring… just to name a few, but our main interest at ZenJenSkin is how it’s use evolved in skin care.
