The power of salt in healing has been known since ancient times. Egyptian physicians recommended salt to treat wounds as far back as 1600 B.C. Sodium chloride disinfects and encourages healing by drawing liquid out of bacteria, disabling the bacteria and allowing wounds to heal.
With such an effective natural resource, there’s no need to improve upon it. Over the years, we’ve developed more sterile ways of producing salt water solutions, but when it comes down to it, a good saline solution isn’t more than salt and water, and it shouldn’t be. Salt is a potent disinfectant on its own without adding chemicals that can do more harm than good.
This is exactly what you’ll find on the ingredients label of NeilMed Piercing Aftercare Saline Solution: pharmaceutical-grade water and sodium chloride.
Saline solution is essentially salt water. Typically, it will consist of a perfected mixture of sterile water and sodium chloride.
It’s is used for a plethora of medical purposes and is what you use to clean your contact lenses. It’s a popular wound disinfectant and an essential medicine used during surgeries. It’s so important that The World Health Organization includes it on it’s List of Essential Medicines. Saline solution is some powerful stuff.
We’ve taken the healing power of the saline solution and put it in sterile, easy-to-use containers for easy piercing aftercare. Our containers use bag-on-valve technology to keep the solution free from foreign substances so that you can adequately clean any new piercing.
Saline solutions aren’t difficult to find, but it is difficult to find a saline solution that makes piercing aftercare easy. Beyond their easy-to-use spray systems, NeilMed Piercing Aftercare Spray is free from preservatives. Non-sterile saline solutions or saline solutions not explicitly made for piercing aftercare could carry preservatives that might harm your healing piercing. With NeilMed Piercing Aftercare, you can feel secure knowing it will be kind to your skin.
The need for a fine mist spray in the piercing aftercare world spurred the creation of NeilMed Piercing Aftercare. The fine mist application allows users to spray the saline solution directly onto their piercing rather than soaking it in a saline bath or using a cotton ball to apply the saline solution. This creates a more sterile application process and offers a cleaning solution that makes it easy to clean surface piercings like cartilage piercings.
