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 NeilCleanse 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.
Saline solution is used for a plethora of medical purposes. It’s what you use to clean your contact lenses. It’s a popular wound disinfectant. It’s also a key medicine used during surgeries. It’s so important that The World Health Organization includes it on their List of Essential Medicines. Saline solution is some powerful stuff.
We’ve taken the healing power of 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, and we’ve developed two nozzle types—the fine mist spray and full stream—so that you can properly clean any new piercing.
Saline solutions aren’t difficult to come by, but it is difficult to find a saline solution that makes piercing aftercare easy. NeilCleanse does just that. Beyond their easy-to-use spray systems, NeilMed NeilCleanse Piercing Aftercare Spray is free from preservatives. Non-sterile saline solutions or saline solutions that aren’t specifically made for piercing aftercare could carry preservatives that might harm your healing piercing. With NeilCleanse, you can feel secure knowing that it will be kind to your skin.
The need for a fine mist spray in the piercing aftercare world spurred the creation of NeilCleanse Piercing Aftercare. The fine mist application allows users to spray saline solution directly onto their piercing rather than having to soak their piercing in a saline bath or use 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.
The full stream spray fulfills aftercare needs that the fine mist spray can’t handle. It’s a good idea to conduct saline baths at the beginning of healing, and some piercings, like belly button piercings, require soaks throughout the healing process. The full stream spray allows users to fill a cup with saline solution in order to make full use of the spray. Like the fine mist spray, it also uses bag-on-valve technology to keep its contents sterile, making it a safer option than non-pressurized saline solutions.
Both the fine mist and full stream options come in the travel size. The 75mL bottle comes in the perfect size to fit in your bag so that you can conduct aftercare while on-the-go. It also adheres to TSA standards so that you can take it with you in your carry on.
