Well to be honest I am kind of disappointed. I read that true colloidal silver is supposed to be amber in color or darker and that fake “ionic silver” comes in clear color as your product is, so I feel as though I was deceived. I would like to have true colloidal silver if you do ever happen to sell the actual product and thank you for your concern.
I was forwarded your e-mail and I would like to respond to it. Whomever told you that or wherever you got that misinformation from is lying or totally misinformed. There is no truth to the color having to be amber, just as it doesn’t have to be clear either. We are talking 15 parts per million (PPM) here. Think of it this way: it’s like dumping 15 cups of cherry Kool-Aid into 1,000,000 cups of water; it’s not going to change the color! There is not enough substance contained in the entire bottle to effect to color in any way shape or form. Please understand that sometimes when others make claims they may be doing so solely to make themselves look good and others to look bad.
The truth is that “colloidal silver” is in fact a generic term like Xerox is for making a copy of something. Read below and you will get a clear picture of what I am talking about.
Colloidal silver is a liquid suspension of microscopic particles of silver. A colloid is technically defined as particles which remain suspended without forming an ionic, or dissolved solution. The broader commercial definition of “colloidal silver” includes products that contain various concentrations of ionic silver, silver colloids, ionic silver compounds or silver proteins in purified water. Colloidal silver with concentrations of 30 parts per million (ppm) or less are typically manufactured using an electrolysis process, whereas colloidal silver with higher concentrations of 50 ppm or more are usually silver compounds that have been bound with a protein.
I hope this clears things up.
