The following study “in vitro” of SILICIUM LABORATORIES confirms the effectiveness of Living Silica in collagen production. The results show that Living Silica does not present any cytotoxicity regarding human fibroblasts.
The results show that Living Silica significantly increases the level of human collagen produced by fibroblasts (13% and 19% compared with the original sample.
The conclusion of the test of the Living Silica under the experimental conditions used:
Induces a significant increase in the level of collagen of 13% and 19% respectively for concentrations of 0.5% and 1%, in cultured human fibroblasts compared with the original sample.
Does not induce cytotoxicity in concentrations of (0.2%, 0.5% and 1%)
Collagen evaluation index: The separation and identification of hydroxyproline was carried out by reversed phase HPLC. Fluorescence peaks, after integration, allowed to calculate the concentration of hydroxyproline in the culture medium.
