How to care for your Body Jewellery:
PLEASE NOTE: Our body jewellery has NOT been sterilised however is supplied new and in factory condition.
*Make sure all fixings, balls, spikes etc are tightened daily.*
Personal Hygiene – Always keep your piercings clean and sterile and wash with either a good quality medicated soap and water and/or rubbing alcohol.
General Basic’s– 316L Surgical Steel, G23 Titanium, Titanium IP, Silicone, Glass, 9ct and 14ct Gold, Bio-Flex and Acrylic pretty much looks after itself and doesn’t really require maintaining other than a wash with medicated soap and hot water and your own personal hygiene as stated above.
Fashion/ Costume Jewellery – Belly Bars, Captives, Tragus, Tunnels and Plugs or any other Body Jewellery with diamantes, crystals and/or dangles, brass and rhodium plated are not always made for everyday wear and tear. If you are not sure when purchasing an item please ask, as Fashion/ Costume jewellery will not last in salt water, chlorine, against some cleaners and stretching creams and even body oils and sweat can affect the jewellery and may cause it to tarnish. Simply wash gently with hot water and a good medicated soap after wearing.
Organic Wood – Can swell in water and crack in heat. Please when required wash quickly with a little hot water and a medicated soap such as Gamophen and leave to dry in an airy place. **Do not leave the wood in water.** Even better try to source a natural oil such as Jojoba Oil and nourish the wood after cleaning for a longer lasting product. Be sure to wipe off any excess residue prior to wearing.
Semi Precious Stone – Keep clean and sanitised. Ok to wash with soap and hot water.
Rose Gold Plated and Gold Plated – Please care in the same way as the fashion/ costume jewellery. Can tarnish depending on your skin type and is not recommended for every day wear.
