Composed of submicroscopic silica particles suspended in liquid, colloidal silica gel can be taken internally. Colloidal silica gel manufacturers claim that ingesting colloidal silica supports connective tissues and promotes the formation of collagen in the skin.


Colloidal silica gel is available in both liquid and capsule form. Instructions for the Australian product, QSilica Gel, advise users to mix two teaspoons with juice or water and consume once or twice daily. Instructions for use may vary depending upon the manufacturer.

Skin Benefits

Colloidal silica gel manufacturers claim that it promotes collagen formation, resulting in youthful skin with less wrinkles and fine lines. In addition, the Natural News website lists silica as an essential nutrient for healthy skin.

Purchase Information

Colloidal silica gel can be purchased via online retailers. In 2010, a 500ml container of QSilica cost £34.90.


Medical professionals question the health benefits and effectiveness of colloidal minerals. Dr. Ray Sahelian notes the absence of research proving that ingesting colloidal minerals improves health.

Other Colloidal Minerals for Skin

Other popular colloidal mineral supplements include colloidal silver and colloidal gold. Colloidal silver manufacturers and naturopathic doctors claim that the natural antibiotic properties in colloidal silver can treat infections, including acne.
