According to the EU directive 94/27/EC the highest allowed rate of nickel release is 0,5µg/cm²/week. Surgical steel fills this requirement and is therefore considered a suitable material for healed piercings. On the other hand the highest allowed rate of nickel release in an initial piercing is 0,2µg/cm²/week and that is why piercing jewelry for your unhealed piercings should be made of titanium instead of surgical steel. The Finnish customs tests the presence of nickel in imported jewelry on a regular basis and our jewelry has been proved to fulfill the requirements described in the EU directive.
To clean jewelry made of surgical steel you can use for example mild detergents and warm water.
