Sc. D. Le Ribault

Who Was
Dr. Loïc Le Ribault?

(1947 – 2007)
Loïc Le Ribault was a nationally recognized figure and France´s most acclaimed forensic investigator. He had developed the science and technology to determine the origin of grains of sand found in crime scenes, just by analyzing them with the electron microscope. His fame led him to work with the FBI, CIA, and the DEA to solve crimes like Enrique Camarena case, a United States DEA narcotics agent kidnapped by Mexican Cartels during the war on drugs.

He was a high public profile, that worked and commented on some of France’s most intriguing criminal, military, and political cases. He created the CARME, France’s only private analytic laboratory that was able to also conduct forensic art authentication. He was sought after by television, radio, and newspapers as well as the French political parties
In 1972, while analyzing samples rich in microorganisms, Sc.D. Loïc Le Ribault discovered the most bioavailable form of silica and its health benefits.

Today, this type of silica is one of the most highly used and potent nutrients to boost collagen naturally in the natural products industry worldwide.

This started when Sc.D. Le Ribault noticed how silica was able to clear the red, itchy, and scaly patches on his right hand after experimenting with sand rich in silica.

This led Sc.D. Loïc to partner with another highly acclaimed research chemist, Professor Norbert Duffaut from the University of Bordeaux, to confirm his finding.
After 12 years of working together, with the goal of discovering the wide range of therapeutic uses of silica, Sc.D. Loïc continued with his research himself until he discovered that silica could also be stabilized in water using carbon atoms.

This discovery led to the development of the breakthrough LIVING SILICA® in 1994.

Even the French government agreed and publicly stated that OS5, the first version of LIVING SILICA®, was a completely natural and non-toxic substance to help with well-being.

Today, LIVING SILICA®, a new patented and GRAS-approved ingredient, has been designed and formulated to help boost your collagen naturally under the brand ORGONO®.

WHY ORGONO®?

WHY ORGONO®?

ORGONO’s name comes from the concept of metaphysical life energy. Ancient teachings have emphasized the idea of subtle energies that are found everywhere. They are the life force that flows through all living things – the building blocks of all life on Earth
In Ayurveda, it’s called Prana. In Chinese, it’s called Chi. In Japanese, it’s called Ki.
ORGONO® empowers you to lead the transformation of your inner self to achieve optimum health and well-being.
Thus, the brand ORGONO® was born.

THE LIVING SILICA® STORY

THE LIVING SILICA® STORY

1972

The discovery of potential therapeutic effects in quartz crystals
Loïc le Ribault studied silica in all its scientific facets for more than 30 years. In two articles published in 1972 by the Academy of Sciences, Le Ribault demonstrated that certain quartz crystals contain an amorphous layer of silica on their surface, which is soluble in water. After studying thousands of samples, he established the frequent presence of microorganisms, such as bacteria and diatoms, on the surface of certain grains of sand. Later he demonstrated that the combined action of these microorganisms releasing organic acids that caused the exterior amorphization (lack of crystalline shape) of dendritic quartz, which created organic silica with potential therapeutic effects.

1975

Developed a procedure to collect the silica deposits
To study more deeply the role of the microorganisms in the biologic silica cycle, Le Ribault created, in 1975, a method that allowed collecting silica deposits produced by the action of the microbes. Afterward, he demonstrated that these obtained solutions contain a significant percentage of silica. During these experiments, he discovered the therapeutic effects of silica on himself.

1982

Positive effect of sand very rich SILICA
Le Ribault was suffering from psoriasis, which was considered incurable and affected his hands and nails. After removing grains of sand rich in silica to study them with an electronic microscope, he was surprised to notice that psoriasis disappeared from his right hand after a few days. Intrigued, he began searching for a cause-effect relation, and realized that the same technique applied to his left hand achieved the same result. Consequently, Le Ribault began to analyze the role of silica in treating skin conditions, create in collaboration with other doctors, and further his investigation. He

Consequently, Le Ribault began to analyze the role of silica in treating skin conditions, create in collaboration with other doctors, and further his investigation. He performed hundreds of tests with positive results.

During this period, he refined the natural extraction method of silica from certain types of silica sand. He provided these therapeutic solutions to other health professionals. Many of the doctors were surprised to find that after beginning treatment, many patients affirmed that they were relived from joint pain and feeling much better. Le Ribault also found that patients affected by viral disorders also demonstrated significant improvements. He discovered that silica has a positive effect on many health conditions.

1994

LE RIBAULT CREATES A NEW MOLECULE
After the death of Duffaut, his partner, Le Ribault continued the work alone. Until then, the silica solutions were exclusively made for external topical use. In order to activate them, it was necessary to add small quantities of chemical medicines. These medicines were selected in a special way based on the disease. Creating a single solution was a challenge in the beginning because they became unstable. In 1994 Le Ribault achieved his dream of creating a pure molecule, which had an advantage: no drugs were needed to reinforce its effect and to keep it stable. The molecule was more effective than the
After the death of Duffaut, his partner, Le Ribault continued the work alone. Until then, the silica solutions were exclusively made for external topical use. In order to activate them, it was necessary to add small quantities of chemical medicines. These medicines were selected in a special way based on the disease. Creating a single solution was a challenge in the beginning because they became unstable. In 1994 Le Ribault achieved his dream of creating a pure molecule, which had an advantage: no drugs were needed to reinforce its effect and to keep it stable. The molecule was more effective than the previous ones, and it was also completely stable. Over time, he demonstrated that the molecule maintained its stability during years and could also be used orally for long periods of time. Its toxicity, a big issue with different types of silica when taken in a long term, was equivalent to the toxicity of the water. According to Le Ribault, the Living Silica molecule is atomically stable because of its constant reorganization and high vibration force. The fact that such an unstable molecule could be stabilized was a great success for this formula. Le Ribault obtained a 100% pure molecule without any contamination that was found in previous solutions. This product was called “fifth generation silica” because there were four previous generations of silica molecules.

2005

A COLLABORATIVE AGREEMENT WAS SIGNED
A collaborative agreement was signed between Silicium Laboratories Ltd. and Loïc Le Ribault to commercialize his discovery through the manufacturing, promotion, and distribution of his silica molecule and its derivatives. Thanks to Loïc Ribault, Orgono® Living Silica® is now available worldwide. The Living Silica®formula we know today is the seventh generation (G7). The final research improved this molecule through improved concentration, stabilization without preservatives, biodynamization, and high pressure processing technology.

1973-1981 : Head of Department of Electronic Microscopy at the official headquarter of the Central Laboratory TOTAL.

In 1982,
the chemist Duffaut and the Dr. le Ribault met during a scientific event in Bordeaux. Duffaut was for several years analyzing a synthetic molecule of organic silica. Le Ribault was heading a very sophisticated microanalysis material, as he created the famous microanalysis laboratory CARME.

Immediately, both scientists initiated their collaboration on the therapeutic application of organic silica. The next year, the collaboration of the scientists led to the synthesis of a very efficient molecule in the treatment of viral diseases: G4, called DNV, obtained by adding sodium hyposulphite. During almost a decade, Duffaut and Le Ribault accumulated evidence of the high efficiency of the organic components in treating a high number of diseases.
