Properties and Benefits of BioFlex

1. Medical Approval and Compliance

BioFlex is a medically approved plastic that adheres to stringent European standards and complies with regulations set by the Council of Europe, European Pharmacopeia, and the U.S. Federal Drug Administration. This ensures that BioFlex is safe for use in body piercings and meets the highest quality standards in the industry.

2. Bio-Compatibility and Hypo-Allergenic

One of the key features of BioFlex is its bio-compatibility and hypo-allergenic properties. This makes it suitable for initial piercings and helps promote faster healing of troubled or infected piercings. BioFlex's bio-compatibility also reduces the risk of allergic reactions, making it an ideal choice for individuals with sensitive skin.

3. Flexibility and Comfort

BioFlex is highly flexible, allowing it to move with the body and provide maximum comfort. This flexibility is particularly beneficial for active individuals, physical workers, and pregnant women. BioFlex belly bars, for example, are extra long and designed to accommodate the growth of the belly during pregnancy, ensuring both safety and comfort.

4. Hygienic and Easy Maintenance

The highly polished surface of BioFlex makes it hygienic and easy to clean, promoting better overall hygiene for the piercing. Additionally, BioFlex is transparent, allowing for discreet wearing of piercings when desired.

5. Adjustable and Versatile

BioFlex bars can be easily adjusted to the desired length using sharp scissors or a blade, providing a customized fit for various piercings. The "Multi-use tube" system also allows for the use of different types of threaded jewelry, further enhancing versatility.

6. Heat and Cold Resistance

BioFlex remains comfortable to wear in both hot and cold temperatures, as it does not overheat in the summer or become uncomfortably cold in the winter. This temperature resistance ensures year-round comfort for the wearer.

Continuous Improvement and Sustainable Development

Patrick Poli and his team are dedicated to the continuous improvement of BioFlex, constantly seeking ways to enhance its properties and performance. In line with the growing global concern for sustainability and environmental responsibility, BioFlex is now being developed with new blends of materials, such as BioFlex with Bamboo and BioFlex with Hemp.

These innovative blends not only maintain the exceptional qualities of BioFlex but also incorporate sustainable materials that are environmentally friendly. By using bamboo and hemp, which are known for their rapid growth and minimal environmental impact, BioFlex is taking a step towards reducing its ecological footprint while still providing the highest quality body jewelry.
