How do I care for silicone jewelry? ( material )

  • Wash silicone jewelry with soap and water prior to first use.
  • Autoclave jewelry if desired.
  • Lubrication of both silicone jewelry and piercing with body-friendly (e.g. vitamin E, jojoba, olive oil, emu oil) prior to insertion or removal is recommended.
  • Silicone jewelry should not be used for stretching piercings!
  • Silicone jewelry can be worn in cartilage but should not be used for stretching it.  If the flares become too tight, they can seal off the piercing.
  • Silicone is not compatible with Madacide, chemiclaves, or any other toxic chemical exposure--it may retain minute amounts of the toxin.
  • Handling with latex gloves may impart latex into the silicone, possibly permanently.  This may cause potential problems for people with latex sensitivity.
