Scientisists from the University of Helsinki, Finland, say they have developed new polymer-stabilised silver nanoparticles that could be used to make antibacterial colloidal silver solution, according to Cosmeticdesign-Europe.com. The researchers say they have managed to reduce potentially harmful exposure to silver nanoparticles by chemically binding the nanoparticles to polymers, making it more difficult for them to penetrate the skin's surface.
