Proper use and care of Product:

Silicone Care:

  • Wash jewelry with soap & water prior to first use. Autoclave jewelry if desired.
  • Lubrication of both eyelet & piercing with body-friendly oils (e.g., vitamin E, jojoba, coconut oil) prior to insertion or removal is recommended.
  • Kaos should not be used for stretching piercings!
  • Eyelets can be worn in cartilage.
  • 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 onto the silicone, possibly permanently. This may cause potential problems for people with latex sensitivity.

 

Can I safely stretch with your products?

NO. Silicone Jewelry SHOULD NEVER be used to stretch. Using silicone to stretch your piercings can cause painful and sometimes irreversible damage.If the jewelry is too tight or tacky it may seal off the piercing stopping it from properly healing.

 

Can Kaos be used in fresh piercings?

NO.

 

Silicone is made to be used in completely healed piercings only.

Using Silicone in a unhealed piercing or just after stretching can cause painful damage to your piercing as it does not allow your fresh piercing to properly heal. If you are unsure as to whether your piercing is healed, please reach out to a Professional Body Piercer. If you do not know one in your area go to http://www.safepiercing.org/ to locate a Reputable Professional Body Piercer.

 

How do I properly insert my Kaos jewelry?

  2. Lubricate both jewelry & piercing with body-friendly oils (e.g, Vitamin E, Jojoba, Emu Oil)
  3. To insert pinch jewelry together and fold in half, insert into piercing and release.

Product Details & Description:

Our jewelry is made from medical implant grade silicone, to ensure our jewelry is free of toxins such as formaldehyde which is found in industrial grade silicones. It is light, soft and one of the most comfortable forms of body jewelry available. Because our jewelry is made of such a pliable material it conforms to your body making it perfect for sleeping and every day wear as well as extremely physical activities where there is risk of impact. (e.g. hiking, rock climbing, running, baseball, skateboarding, snowboarding, biking and anything requiring a helmet or hard hat.)

 

Is your silicone medical grade and/or biocompatible?

Yes, and Yes! Kaos silicone body jewelry is made with medical, implant grade silicone. It is safe to wear in all healed piercing’s and is great for those that have metal allergens or sensitivities. The main concern customer’s face with our product is external debris and/or irritants on the surface, the irritant is not in the silicone itself but the result of pollen, pet dander, and other potential allergens collecting on the wearable surface where they may cause allergic reactions. Properly cleaning the jewelry with mild soap and warm water along with the aid of a proper body-friendly lubricant (e.g. Vitamin E, Jojoba, Emu, or coconut oil) prior to insertion will reduce the chances of any irritation or allergic reactions.

 

Is silicone micro-porous?

Silicone is not microporous. It can retain minute amounts of any fluid it is exposed to for a long period. This isn't an issue with brief exposures or with soap from washing, and the level at which it absorbs these things is far too small for it to be absorbing microorganisms. You can observe it in larger pieces of transparent silicone after autoclaving - which, through the pressure it uses, forces the silicone to take on water, which you can see as cloudiness in the silicone. This cloudiness gradually dissipates from the outer surface over a period of a couple hours. The main concern of this retention is for people to absolutely avoid exposing Kaos product in a chemiclave or soaking in chemicals, as you will simply be making yourself a piece of toxic jewelry.

 

How do you dye your silicone?

The silicone itself is not dyed. Pre-pigmented silicone dispersions are added to the silicone. These dispersions of pigment are marketed specifically to be mixed with other silicones for medical applications. MSDS available upon request.
