SilvaCell is a mix of strong antioxidants and antimicrobials. High concentration of flavonoids contributes to specific biological activities. Procyanidin derivatives of different polymerization degree have been identified as main compounds responsible for biological activity.

SilvaCell acts towards various mechanisms of skin inflammation – directly inhibits bacterial growth, modulates inflammation and neutralizes free radicals generated by inflammatory processes and extrinsic factors.

SilvaCell is active against bacteria that cause acne and skin inflammation. In the concentration range 1.5 -2.5% SilvaCell completely inhibits growth of Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Propionibacterium acne and Propionibacterium granulosum.

Optimal combination of juniper stem cells and lichen extracts contributes to the high antiradical activity – more than 44% of free radicals are scavenged in skin keratinocytes in presence of low concentration SilvaCell.
