Topic: silver sol vs colloidal silver, what's the difference?

I have been using a silver product that my mother in law gets for me. It was sold under the name Silver sol and now it is labeled One silver solution.
Anyway I have noticed that the One silver solution is 10 ppm and when I ran out I purchased some regular colloidal silver and it is 250 ppm. That's a pretty big difference in ppm.
I know the One silver solution is supposed to be special or different. I was just wondering if anyone else uses this and if they know what is different about the One silver solution/Silver sol compared to colloidal silver??
I am pretty sure that the higher the ppm the more risk of it not truly being a colloidal silver but a mild silver protein which can cause health risks.
I know that the higher the particle surface area is better better not necessarily the ppm there is a good explanation and graph on the particle surface area.
http://www.silver-colloids.com/Reports/reports.html The metal concentration in parts-per-million (ppm) expresses the weight of the metal vs. the weight of the liquid it is suspended in. Particle concentration can be a very confusing measurement when comparing colloidal silver products because colloids having very large particles can have a high concentration of metal (ppm) but a very low particle surface area. Concentration (ppm) by itself is not what determines colloidal effectiveness; it is only the particle surface area that does.
