Despite the inability of Carbon 60 to be directly dissolved in water, there are several methods for preparing stable dispersions of C60 fullerenes in water without any particular modifications of the fullerene or addition of stabilizers. Several studies have shown aqueous solutions of Carbon 60 fullerenes and water are possible. . Greska's Topical Mist also confirms the colloidal nature of such mixture.
Research articles have confirmed the protective role of Carbon 60 in reducing free radicals and oxidative stress when used in rat kidney, and lungs damaged by the cancer treatment drug Doxorubicin.
Spray directly on muscle pain, joint pain, and nerve pain to reduce inflammation and discomfort.
Our Topical Mist contains the same bio-available Carbon 60 as Greska’s Carbon-60 in sunflower oil without the need for oil,
hence no oily feel or lingering oil residue on the skin.
Our proprietary Carbon 60 conversion process creates a colloidal water-based suspension,
(not a dissolved solution.)
Greska’s Topical Mist is fast absorbing and also helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles and helps moisturize the skin reducing the appearance of aging. Carbon 60 is a powerful antioxidant.

The Research & Science of Carbon 60
Benefits of Carbon 60 for your skin health
Title: Fullerene C60 with cytoprotective and cytotoxic potential: prospects as a novel treatment agent in Dermatology?
Author: Angelique Rondags,Wing Yan Yuen,Marcel F. Jonkman,Barbara Horváth
Abstract: Novel treatment agents with the ability to scavenge or generate radicals can potentially be meaningful in the treatment of various skin diseases, especially for those diseases that have limited effective treatment options. This viewpoint essay will discuss the potential of fullerene C60, i.e. buckminsterfullerene, derivatives as novel treatment agents in dermatology.
Effective against wrinkles
Title: Fullerene is effective against wrinkles
Author: Nina Tsao, Tien-Yay Luh, Chen-Kung Chous, Jiunn-Jong Wo, Yee-Shin Lin, Huan-Yao Lei
Abstract: To experimentally prove the effectiveness of fullerene/squalane, an 8-week double-blind clinical test was conducted on 23 female volunteers aged between 30 and 40 years according to the Japanese guidelines for the evaluation of antiwrinkle creams…Thus, fullerene/squalane can be used for antiwrinkle treatment, and fullerene may be useful for care after antiwrinkle LASER treatment.
Carbon 60 prevents UV damage
Title: Fullerene-C60/liposome complex: Defensive effects against UVA-induced damages in skin structure, nucleus and collagen type I/IV fibrils, and the permeability into human skin tissue
Author: Shinya Kato 1, Hisae Aoshima, Yasukazu Saitoh, Nobuhiko Miwa
Abstract: C60 was not detected in the dermis by HPLC, suggesting no necessity for considering a toxicity of C60 due to systemic circulation via dermal veins. Thus Lpsm-Flln has a potential to be safely utilized as a cosmetic anti-oxidative ingredient for UVA-protection.
Carbon 60 inhibits viruses
Title: Medicinal applications of fullerenes
Author: Rania Bakry, Rainer M Vallant, Muhammad Najam-ul-Haq, Matthias Rainer, Zoltan Szabo, Christian W Huck, and Günther K Bonn
Abstract: Fullerenes (C60) and their derivatives have potential antiviral activity, which has strong implications on the treatment of HIV-infection. The antiviral activity of fullerene derivatives is based on several biological properties including their unique molecular architecture and antioxidant activity.
Title: Antiviral activity of nano carbon fullerene lipidosome against influenza virus in vitro
Author: Hong Ji , Zhanqiu Yang , Wenling Jiang , Chun Geng , Ming Gong , Hong Xiao , Zhijie Wang & Li Cheng <br>Journal of Huazhong University of Science and Technology [Medical Sciences] volume 28, pages243–246(2008)
Abstract:The activity of nanocarbon fullerene lipidosome (NCFL) against influenza virus H1N1 in vitro was studied. There was a dose-activity relationship between the dosages of NCFL and the direct killing effect against the influenza virus, and the periods of lighting-time could influence the activity partly. It was concluded that NCFL had a significant activity of directly killing the influenza virus.
Title: Fullerenes in biology
Author: Anita Krokosk
Abstract: Results of previous studies point to the great dependance of fullerenes activity upon quality, quantity and geometry of substituents in fullerene derivatives. Some of fullerene derivatives show antiviral and antimicrobial activity, including anti-HIV properties. C60 and its derivatives are able to exhibit cytotoxic and enzyme-inhibiting abilities as well as radical-quenching and antioxidative abilities. Generation of reactive oxygen species under influence of visible light is another ability of fullerene derivetives desired in photodynamic therapy.
Title: Anti-Influenza Activity of C60 Fullerene Derivatives
Author: Masaki Shoji,Etsuhisa Takahashi,Dai Hatakeyama,Yuma Iwai,Yuka Morita,Riku Shirayama,Noriko Echigo,Hiroshi Kido,Shigeo Nakamura,Tadahiko Mashino,Takeshi Okutani,Takashi Kuzuhara
Abstract: In a cell culture system, we found that several fullerene derivatives inhibit influenza A viral infection and the expression of influenza A nucleoprotein and nonstructural protein 1. These results indicate that fullerene derivatives are possible candidates for the development of novel anti-influenza drugs.
Carbon 60 inhibits bacterial infections
Title: Inhibition of Group A Streptococcus Infection by Carboxyfullerene
Author: Nina Tsao, Tien-Yay Luh, Chen-Kung Chous, Jiunn-Jong Wo, Yee-Shin Lin, Huan-Yao Lei
Abstract: Furthermore, carboxyfullerene was able to directly inhibit in vitro growth of S. pyogenes. These data suggest that carboxyfullerene can be considered an antimicrobial agent for group A streptococcus infection.
Water-soluble C60 fullerene prevents degeneration of articular cartilage in osteoarthritis
Title:Water-soluble C60 fullerene prevents degeneration of articular cartilage in osteoarthritis
Author: Kazuo Yudoh 1, Kiyoshi Shishido, Hideki Murayama, Mitsunobu Yano, Kenji Matsubayashi, Hiroya Takada, Hiroshi Nakamura, Kayo Masuko, Tomohiro Kato, Kusuki Nishioka
Abstract:In rabbits with OA, treatment with water-soluble C60 significantly reduced articular cartilage degeneration, whereas control knee joints showed progression of cartilage degeneration with time. This inhibitory effect was dose-dependent, and was superior to that of HA. Combined treatment with C60 and HA yielded a significant reduction in cartilage degeneration compared with either treatment alone.
Conclusion: The results indicate that C60 fullerene is a potential therapeutic agent for the protection of articular cartilage against the progression of OA.
Carbon 60 reduces inflammation
Title: Fullerol nanoparticles suppress inflammatory responses
Author: Qihai Liu, PhD, Li Jin, MD, PhD, Francis H. Shen, MD, Gary Balian, PhD, and Xudong Joshua Li, MD, PhD*
Abstract: Thus, fullerene has been characterized as a “free radical sponge”, with an anti-oxidative efficacy of several hundred-fold higher than conventional antioxidants . Fullerene and its derivatives were found to be in many biological applications: inhibition of nitric oxide formation by suppressing nitric oxide synthase , prevention of ischemia-induced injuries in brain , inactivation of viruses  and prevention of quartz-induced neutrophilic inflammation in the lungs . Furthermore, a Japanese group showed that a water-soluble fullerene prevented the development of cartilage degeneration and arthritis with no detectable toxicity when intraarticularly injected into rabbits of an osteoarthritis model .
Leading Anti-Aging Experts
Denham Harman, Ph.D, M.D.
In 1954, Dr. Denham Harman first postulated that aging is a result of oxidative damage caused by free radicals generated by the metabolic system.
Dr. Harman stated, “Free radicals are any number of chemical species that are highly reactive because they possess an odd number of elections ( missing an electron) and seek to combine with other molecules to pair off their free electron (steal).”
He went on to state, “Normal aging results from random damage to tissues by free radicals.
Carbon 60 is a free radical scavenger and has the ability to give electrons to free radicals and reducing oxidative stress.
Aubrey De Grey
Aubrey de Grey is an English author and biomedical gerontologist. He is the author of The Mitochondrial Free Radical Theory of Aging (1999) and co-author of Ending Aging (2007).
The Mitochondrial Free Radical Theory of Aging (MFRTA) proposes that mitochondrial free radicals, produced as by-products during normal metabolism, cause oxidative damage. According to MFRTA, the accumulation of this oxidative damage is the main driving force in the aging process.
Carbon 60 has been proven to penetrate mitochondria and improve mitochondrial function, reducing oxidative stress and helping improve overall health and aging..
