The health and skincare benefits of the precious metal silver are
derived from its electrical and thermal conductivity -- that is, its
ability to generate an electrical field that distributes electricity
and heat around the body.
This field stimulates the body's existing conductivity, improving
blood circulation, temperature balance and general healing.
Positive silver ions also bind to negatively charged oxygen
receptors in bacteria, destabilising their metabolic enzymes and
causing them to suffocate.
Worn externally it provides a "shield" against germs and
bacteria, as well electromagnetic radiation.
Silver is best worn when either the immune system is weak or
when the body faces a particularly challenging environment, such as
travel, toxic urban environments, or hyper-connected office spaces,
where we face heightened exposure to both germs and electronics.
You can experience more balanced energy levels and moods
while wearing silver, at your computer or during travel, as you offset
WiFi and electrical disturbances, improve overall temperature
balance and circulation, maintain optimum hygiene and immunity.
Used directly in skincare, it can have even more potent benefits.
The OmVeda Precious Silver Facial, for instance, is a traditional
Ayur vedic treatment that offers exceptional results in minimising
redness, rosacea and the tight uncomfortable feeling often
associated with inflamed complexions.
It cocoons skin in the cooling and rejuvenating properties of
pure silver to soothe, revive and prolong the youthful appearance of
the most sensitive skins.
This facial is also a deeply sensory experience, with skin emerges
calm, supple and renewed with a soft incandescent glow.

returns moisture and evens out tone, tackling concerns that often
show with Pitta imbalances.
In the ancient Indian heath philosophy of Ayur veda, some 5,000
years old and being re- embraced in modern wellness offerings,
the Pitta dosha [body type] governs all heat, metabolism and
transformation in the mind and body. It controls how we digest
foods, how we metabolise our sensory perceptions, and how we
discriminate between right and wrong.
Pitta governs the important digestive "agnis", or fires of the body.
In classic OmVeda style, this facial incorporates a soothing
signature marma point facial massage using the Silver Day Cream,
a rich and pure blend of finely ground silver, sesame oil, saffron
and almond oil. It begins with a cleanse suited to the individual skin
type. It follows with compresses of Silver Toner to cool the skin and
remove excess traces of cleanser.
The facial continues with an application of the OmVeda Silver
Gel combined with finely grated cucumber and the Silver Herbal
Mask, which is freshly blended with organic yoghurt and brushed
onto the face and neck. The mask is removed after 20 minutes.
The session ends with an application of the Silver Day Cream,
Eye Cream and Sandalwood Protective Base and a recommended
regimen of home care products.

scriptures and traditional health and beauty recipes that have been

are not tested on animals and are free of nasties. Exfoliants are eco-
friendly and do not contain microbeads.
"Silver is an integral part of Ayur veda, as is the use of metals,"
says OmVeda founder Yasmin Sadikot.
"Metals used are in their purest form -- eg. pure silver, not sterling
silver. The line is very popular. All metals in Ayur veda go through a
very special process. It takes months to make it into a substance fit
for human consumption.
"It has exceptional cooling properties, helps to calm irritated
skins and also constricts the capillaries.
