All the Qsilica Skin Care products are infused with colloidal silica to visibly fight the signs of ageing and give that outer glow. Silica, a mineral natural to sand and Quartz, is present in many vegetables and grains and is an important nutrient for the skin. It provides antioxidants and vitamins, which, in turn, produce a natural glow in the skin, promote youthful radiance and maintain elasticity and suppleness.
Only potent natural nutrients and ingredients are used in the Qsilica Skin Care range. Every product is free of chemicals, parabens, sulphates, petroleum and synthetic additives and none are tested on animals.
