What is Bioplast Body Jewelry?

February 18th, 2010

Bioplast body jewelry is showing up from more and more manufacturers.  It is especially popular for use with navel rings. This material is an alternative to metallic (surgical steel and titanium) body jewelry and provides several benefits that the other materials do not.

Most importantly, bioplast belly button rings can be cleaned and sterilized very easily. Bioplast can be heated to 121 degrees Celsius, or approximately 250 degrees Fahrenheit.  These scalding temperatures will easily kill any bacteria and ensure that the belly button rings are clean and safe to wear.

In addition to being so sterile, this material is more flexible than titanium and surgical steel navel rings.  This allows for a greater range of movement and will reduce any tearing or stretching in the navel area. Because bioplast is a bio-compatible material, it is less likely than metallic body jewelry to be rejected by the body.  When the body rejects a new piercing, it will become infected and not heal properly.

Belly button ring retailers are also fond of this style of navel ring because it is “self-threading.” When the belly ring reaches the consumer, this is typically not an issue but manufacturers certainly appreciate it.  A self-threading belly button ring is one that can be cut to any size. Bioplast body jewelry are typically no more expensive than the metallic body jewelry of compatible styles.  They are reportedly “the best material for belly button rings” because they offer so many more benefits than metallic rings but do not have a higher price.
