How to care for your Body Jewellery:
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 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 don’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, againts some cleaners and stretching creams and even body oils and sweat can affect the jewellery.
Organic Wood – Can swell in water and crack in heat. Please when required wash quickly with a little 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.
