Nutrasporin® is a non-toxic (toxin free) and petroleum-free first-aid ointment that we believe is the best all-purpose medicine for cuts, scrapes, rashes, infections, bites, and skin irritations. This amazing product also relieves stings, burns, urinary tract infections, sore throats, and even cold sores in record time!
Our vegetable glycerin is made from extracts of the palm plant. Due to it's origins, it is soy and gluten free. Glycerin is clear and odorless. It has a number of valuable applications, for which it was selected to suspend the other ingredients, as opposed to water or oil. Glycerin is a humectant, which means that in addition to having the ability to increase the solubility of active ingredients, it also leaves skin hydrated. In order for vegetable glycerin to be used in food applications (food-grade), it must have of USP grade of over 99% pure. It is non-comedogenic, so it will not clog pores.
While other companies use water or oil, 3rd Rock chooses glycerin. Not just for its numerous benefits seen above, but also because it does a better job than water or oil at keeping the emulsion stable. Water and oil requires an emulsifier to be kept stable. Glycerin does not, so there is no need for extra additives. With the alkaline balance, it also won't go rancid.
The chelated silver oxide used in our products is specially treated to insure that it is as safe as possible. It is not a metal salt. It has antibiotic properties, which find it's way into our products, as a safe antibiotic alternative.
The secret behind Nutrasporin's chelated silver oxide?
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,” thereby getting rid of the bad bacteria without upsetting the ones that maintain your immune system.
That’s the 3rd Rock advantage!
