Bioplast body jewellery is a revolutionary new type of jewellery that is flexible, extremely biocompatible and metal-free. It is made from Bioplast, a biological plastic specifically formulated to aid healing and healthy piercings.
Bioplast fulfils all the requirements of a biocompatible material and is proven to reduce piercing healing times. It is one of the most biocompatible materials available and we recommend it for initial piercing jewellery. It will not irritate the skin and is hypoallergenic ideal for people with metal allergies and sensitive skin. If you have a piercing that has become irritated cue to movement, cheap jewellery or an impact, we recommend switching to Bioplast jewellery for at least a short time. Another reason that Bioplast encourages healthy piercings is that is it non-stick. This means that lymph is less likely to gather on the jewellery and it is easier to clean. It is also a big advantage for tongue piercings because it does not attract plaque in the way that a metal tongue bar can.
The other main advantage of Bioplast jewellery is its flexibility. Bioplast can bend with your body, making it ideal for locations that see a lot of movement e.g. oral piercings, scaffold piercings and tongue piercings. It has a nice soft feel that is gentle on the skin, especially in oral piercings. This softness also reduces the risk of gum recession and tooth damage with oral piercings - you cannot chip a tooth by biting down on a Bioplast bar and it is less likely to irritate the gums etc. This is especially important in cases of gum recession because gum recession is irreversible and in extreme cases can lead to tooth loss. For this reason it is important to either wear Bioplast jewellery from the start or switch to Bioplast jewellery at the first sign of damage.
When purchasing Bioplast jewellery you will also see the term 'BioFlex'. Bioplast and BioFlex are in fact the same material and mean the same thing. "Bioplast" and "BioFlex" are simply terms used by different manufacturers.
