About Copper Based Products

copper_california-2Physicians have been using copper for cosmetic and pharmaceutical purposes for over 4000 years. Ancient Egyptian and Sumerian evidence exists suggesting that physicians and pharmacists in these ancient cultures used copper compounds for a variety of cosmetic and medical purposes.

The modern industrial invention of aluminum and aluminum compounds displaced copper from practical uses in dermatology, about 120 years ago, when technology was created that permitted the factory production of industrial quantities of aluminum compounds. After this, dermatological pharmacists developed aluminum-based deodorants, antiperspirants, anti-infection agents, wound cleansing agents, and blood clotting astringents. These solutions did prove effective, to a degree, but there is not historical evidence supporting these aluminum products as better than copper. In fact copper, the ancient medicine, may be superior in many ways to the more modern aluminum compounds. Also, aluminum metal, and its salt, aluminum chloride, do not occur naturally on Earth, while copper and copper chloride are natural minerals found in the earth.

Aluminum compounds have been blamed for a variety of modern illnesses, including Alzheimer’s disease ( increased aluminum in the affected brain lesions) and breast cancer (genotoxicity data and, the observation that breast cancers are increased in upper outer breast quadrant in the population of aluminum antiperspirant users, among other evidence.) It is inconclusive if these illnesses are related to the use of manufactured aluminum compounds, but copper has not been implicated in these disorders.

Copper Medical Company has developed a series of copper based solutions to treat odor, and, excessive feeling of wetness. These solutions represent a modern reinvention of the pharmaceutical use of copper, an ancient medical and cosmetic treatment. The base formulation (Copper Desert) is 100% aluminum-free, safe and gentle, using ingredients found naturally in the earth.
Copper chloride, in the vehicle, used in the CopperDry and related products, has been recently tested in a double-blinded, controlled study. The scientific study showed that copper is a highly effective anti-sweating agent, and, and it has been published in a peer reviewed scientific journal, which uses a “blinded” academic peer review system.
