100% natural & gentle for all skin types

The best lotion to use after you get a new piercing

Whether you have just pierced your ear for the first time, or added yet another body piercing to your ever-growing collection, emu oil is the smart choice when it comes to aftercare. Its nutrient dense profile helps soothe the skin, reduce redness irritation, prevent infection, and significantly assist healing around the pierced region.

Being all-natural and very gentle, emu oil is safe to use on broken and sensitive skin, even in the most private areas of the body one may get pierced. It is perfectly fine to apply directly on the penis, vagina or nipples, plus other commonly pierced areas such as the nose, ears, belly button etc. You can even use emu oil for tongue piercings, as it is perfectly safe to consume orally. There aren't many other moisturisers you can say that about!

Relieves & soothes the skin after a new piercing

Emu oil is packed full of essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which healing skin craves! Its low molecular weight means it passes through all 7 skin layers around the pierced area for maximum benefit. This makes it unlike any other moisturiser when it comes to piercing aftercare. With so many petro-chems and other nasties hidden in skincare products these days, it's really not a good idea to use vaseline and other common moisturisers, especially when it comes to 'down there'.

Make sure you have some emu oil ready to go before your next piercing. You will thank us later :)
