'The new Mystere 3600 Tourmaline hairdryer perfectly combines the protecting properties of the ceramic with the capacity to generate negative ions and far infrared Tourmaline heat. The grid, the resistance and the cone of the hairdryer are coated with a perfect combination of ceramic and Nano Tourmaline particles. Tourmaline is a valuable semi precious stone that has piezoelectric properties that emit a natural form of negative ions and generate far infrared heat.'' ''Nano Silver Anti-Bacterial Technology - The Nano Silver Anti-Bacterial particles are a powerful bactericide and fungicide. GA.MA incorporated those Nano Silver particles in the casing and in the grid of their hairdryers. They prevent the formation of damaging elements and help regain the beauty of the hair.''

'This is an amazing professional dryer with far infrared heat and nano silver anti-bacterial technology. Now, I am not that knowledgeable in regards to hair care technology lingo… so bare with me as I try to put this into layman’s terms. Infrared heat is considered to be much gentler than conventional heat. It dries the hair evenly by penetrating the hair (not just focusing on the outer layer or overheating the hair). Because of the even spread of the heat, the hair dries more quickly and remains softer and healthier. Nano silver anti-bacterial particles are a powerful bactericide and fungicide intended to prevent damaging elements to hair. The nano silver anti-bacterial particles have been infused into the casing and grid of this hairdryer. So think about the last time you dried your hair… did it feel brittle after long term use? I know mine gets dried out if I don’t use a conditioner or some sort of product along with my hair dryer. With this dryer, you don’t need to worry about adding additional moisturizers to your hair prior to drying.''

''In this study, we investigated the antimicrobial activity of silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) and platinum nanoparticles (Pt-NPs) aqueous solution, which were prepared using different stabilizer, such as sodium dodecylsulfate (SDS) and poly-(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone) (PVP), for Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) and Escherichia coli (E.coli) by measuring the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC). Antimicrobial effect of Ag-NPs for S. aureus and E. coli was investigated using cup diffusion method. The growth of Gram-positive (S. aureus) and Gram-negative (E. coli) bacteria were inhibited by Ag-NPs. The MIC of Ag-NPs for S. aureus and E. coli were 5 and 10 ppm, respectively. But the Au-NPs stabilized with SDS did not show antimicrobial activity. Also, the Pt-NPs stabilized with PVP (or SDS) did not show antimicrobial activity for the test organisms.''

'Many important aspects of nanosilver behavior are influenced by the ionic activity associated with the particle suspension, including antibacterial potency, eukaryotic toxicity, environmental release, and particle persistence. The present study synthesizes pure, ion-free, citrate-stabilized nanosilver (nAg) colloids as model systems, and measures their time-dependent release of dissolved silver using centrifugal ultrafiltration and atomic absorption spectroscopy. Ion release is shown to be a cooperative oxidation process requiring both dissolved dioxygen and protons. It produces peroxide intermediates, and proceeds to complete reactive dissolution under some conditions. Ion release rates increase with temperature in the range 0−37 °C, and decrease with increasing pH or addition of humic or fulvic acids. Sea salts have only a minor effect on dissolved silver release. Silver nanoparticle surfaces can adsorb Ag+, so even simple colloids contain three forms of silver: Ag0 solids, free Ag+ or its complexes, and surface-adsorbed Ag+. Both thermodynamic analysis and kinetic measurements indicate that Ag0 nanoparticles will not be persistent in realistic environmental compartments containing dissolved oxygen. An empirical kinetic law is proposed that reproduces the observed effects of dissolution time, pH, humic/fulvic acid content, and temperature observed here in the low range of nanosilver concentration most relevant for the environment.''
