3rd Rock RashBlock Contains Safe, Non-toxic Antimicrobial Agents3rd Rock Rashblock contains silver oxide, an ancient healing secret that was somehow wiped off the medicinal map after antibiotics were discovered and patented by Big Pharma. Sure, many antimicrobial agents like chlorine destroy bacteria on contact; but these toxins also kill living cells and tissue, even in low doses. Silver oxide has similar antibacterial properties but works in a different way.Our silver oxide is treated with a patented chelation process, which makes it unique. This is NOT a metal salt. It is chelated with amino acids – the building blocks of proteins – and it makes our product powerfully bioactive and bioavailable unlike any other silver compound. Other silver salts are usually silver nitrate based and do not have the healing efficiency.Bacteria (plus mold and mildew) need three things to grow: water, food, and a substrate (a surface to which microbes can attach themselves). If one of these components isn’t present, bacteria can no longer thrive. Silver oxide makes the substrate “go away.” It changes the surface of whatever bacteria want to grow on, be it wood, metal, plastic, animal or human flesh, intestines, cavities – you get the idea.3rd Rock RashBlock also contains a biopolymer that actually allows the silver oxide to become bioactive and cling to biological surfaces longer, making it 100 to 100,000 times more effective than colloidal silver oxide, which easily rinses away. And, since it doesn’t cling to cell walls, colloidal silver is only effective for a very brief time.In contrast, 3rd Rock’s patent-pending chelated silver-oxide biopolymer allows RashBlock to remain effective at least 2.5 hours after it is applied to the skin. Consequently, its antimicrobial agents stop bacteria from growing better than alcohol-based hand sanitizers that work for about 15 seconds and leave skin dehydrated.According to user testimonials, chelated silver oxide’s antimicrobial agents are also effective against urinary-tract infections, bites, stings (including jellyfish), chafing, and other irritations caused by exposure to bacteria, microbes, and fungi.Why We Love RashBlock It soothes rashes and skin irritations.
