Cleaning your Jewellery

Body jewellery from all quality sources is not pre sterilised.
Our jewellery arrives prepackaged from our supplier and although it is relatively clean it will need a gentle cleansing before use.

How to clean

One of the most common sources of infection is transferring bacteria to the piercing site. To prevent this, it is important to only touch body jewellery with clean hands when you are about to clean it. Apply a antibacterial soap and dry your hands on a fresh towel before handling.

Please gently clean your jewellery before use with antibacterial soap and water. Do not use harsh alcohol based products on your jewellery as this may damage the finish.

If the piercing hasn’t been removed in some time, take out the jewellery slowly as it could be stuck to your skin which could lead to tearing.

The actual piercing site should also be cleaned with antibacterial soap or an alcohol wipe can be used. Your skin harbours bacteria that can be transferred when inserting your jewellery.
