Methylene blue

Recommended Posts

"Methylene Blue (MB) has wound healing properties, which would be great for treating the effects of seb derm. Anything that improves overall skin barrier function is useful. Also, the research shows the safety and usefulness of "nano molar" concentrations -- for example, 1 drop of 1% MB in 1.5 liters of water = about 1.0μM, or 1 part per million." Methylene blue, Tom Busby, RF

"Our work suggests that methylene blue could be a powerful antioxidant for use in skin care products," said Kan Cao, senior author on the study and an associate professor of cell biology and molecular genetics at UMD. "The effects we are seeing are not temporary. Methylene blue appears to make fundamental, long-term changes to skin cells.....'We have already begun formulating cosmetics that contain methylene blue. Now we are looking to translate this into marketable products,' Cao said." Common antioxidant could slow symptoms of aging in human skin, May 30, 2017, University of Maryland, ScienceDaily
