Our story begins in France in 1966. That’s when founder Stephen L. Quinto was looking for an alternative to chlorine-based systems to keep his swimming pool free of bacteria and algae. Through his research, Quinto was introduced to silver and copper ion generators. These worked well and allowed him to keep the pool clean and at a consistent temperature of 88°F year-round.
In 1997, one of Quinto’s colleagues shared with him some new information about colloidal silver. After a thorough review of the material, Quinto realized that the reason his pool water was kept pure was because the system was utilizing colloidal silver and copper. It also became clear to Quinto that what was being offered in 1997 as colloidal silver was essentially an elementary derivative of the same formulations that were widely used in medicine when he was a child. During that time, such products were in widespread use by medical professionals, but the technology had not evolved since. These realizations inspired Quinto to begin his journey in colloidal silver.
Quinto spent the next several years in research and development. He was eventually able to isolate silver into particles so small that they were almost indistinguishable – even under an electron microscope! The silver’s near-perfect dispersion represented not only a breakthrough in the science but also the ultimate refinement of the colloidal silver category. He sent his findings to various universities and professors who confirmed that he had created a colloidal silver so fine that it was highly effective even at dilutions of 150 ppb (parts per billion).
In 1998, Natural Immunogenics Corp. was founded, and in 1999, the company built its own laboratory in Miami. In December 1999, the family owned and operated business introduced Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol™ and the Sovereign Silver® brand to the U.S. marketplace. Two years later, Argentyn 23®, a derivative professional line based on the same technology, followed.
Today, Natural Immunogenics is still family owned and leads the industry in the research and development of colloidal hydrosol products. The company operates out of its own custom, state-of-the-art, GMP certified facility and laboratory, where it continues to research, test and develop new products to serve a growing segment of the population looking for natural ways to maintain their health. All in an effort to help people achieve their own health sovereignty.

Sovereign Silver Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol™ is made with just two ingredients taken directly from nature: 99.999% pure silver and ultra-purified pharmaceutical-grade water. 99.999% silver (sometimes referred to as “Five 9’s”) is 100x more pure than the silver found in jewelry! Even our packaging is from mother earth as we package only in non-leaching amber glass bottles, never plastic, to guarantee purity throughout its shelf life.
At Sovereign Silver, we conduct ourselves with the highest standards, both in the way we produce our product and in how we relate to each other, our customers, our suppliers and our community.
Our Common Good team organizes events that allow our team members to support local organizations in the effort to restore, foster and preserve earth’s natural resources, both human and environmental. Some examples of our past Common Good efforts include: helping to clear invasive plants and garbage at the F.I.S.H. Preserve in Cortez, FL, collecting over 600 lbs. of food for a local food bank and an employee bake sale resulting in our ability to help donate to a local children’s home and pet rescue organization.
In addition, we have partnered with international and national non-profit organizations focusing on environmental and youth issues. For example, we have partnered with Peace Possible, an organization that provides medical care for children in need around the globe. Through Peace Possible, Sovereign Silver Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol helps to fulfill their need for daily immune support.*
Sovereign Silver is also committed to protecting the legacy of natural medicines by working with national regulatory bodies to ensure access for all consumers. For example, silver’s NPN status in Canada is a direct result of Sovereign Silver’s efforts to gain approval for silver as a Trace Element. This work continues today in Europe and around the globe.
