What is CBD?
Found mostly in the trichomes of the female cannabis plant, CBD is one of over 115 different chemical compounds known as cannabinoids. To paint a clearer picture of how cannabinoids work, they are agonists that attach themselves to the cannabinoid receptors found inside of your body. Although some of these receptors are concentrated heavily in your central nervous system, almost every single other organ in your body contains receptors. To give you a bit of a better visual, you can think of the agonists and cannabinoid receptors as a lock and key system. When you take in the CBD (an agonist) it acts as a key that interacts with the various locks in your body (cannabinoid receptors). All of this together makes up what we call the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Your ECS is a massive network inside your body, and the cell receptor proteins have many different functions. CBD has an effect to regulate your mood, memory, motor control, pain, bone development and even sleep. For over two years, H2Ocean has been working alongside trusted and world renowned researchers like CBD Clinic & CBD Medic to assure your Certification of Analysis. H2Ocean quality you can trust in our CBD.

In over 25 years of experience running my piercing studio, Piercology, I have found using saline alone has not proven to be effective in warding off irritation in a fresh piercing. You also need to cleanse the area free of dried sebum, dirt and other irritants. Most Piercers agree that soaps containing alcohols, fragrances, parabens, and especially Triclosan, should not be used directly for piercings. What should you cleanse your piercing with instead of these harsh options?
PurSan is formulated and tested specifically for the Body Modification Industry, which requires a unique skin cleansing product. Using PurSan in combination with sea salt soaks makes for a perfect combination for your clients’ aftercare regimen.
Why Use Pursan?
PurSan is a mild, vegan-friendly aftercare cleanser that safely and effectively cleans and moisturizes even the most sensitive skin during the healing of piercings and tattoos.
Free from alcohol, parabens, fragrance, or dye, PurSan contains unique ingredients including Hydroxypropl Methylcellulose; Chloroxylenol (PCMX), a proven broad-spectrum antimicrobial preservative, effective against bacteria and viruses without irritation; Panthenol combined with Allatoin, helps reduce redness and supports healing. PurSan is easy to use and can be kept in the shower for initial aftercare.
Skin typically has a pH level of 4.5 to6.5, a team of chemists and biologists have formulated PurSan with this in mind. Having a pH range of 5.0 to5.5, PurSan matches the very fine skin surface barrier called the “acid mantle”. This “acid mantle” acts as a barrier to bacteria, viruses, and other potential contaminates. Standard soaps typically contain a pH level of 7, or higher, which can disrupt this sensitive layer of cells, and lead to dryness. PurSan is manufactured in Canada in a fully licensed facility, which comply with Health Canada and FDA regulations, work under aseptic cGMP guidelines, and strict quality-assurance standards.
It Makes Economic Sense.
Two aftercare obstacles we have noticed are cost, and time commitment. Committing to saline spray for aftercare can cost up to $50 each month, whereas a single 4oz. bottle of concentrated PurSan cleanser costs only $8 in most studios. Needing only a small dime-sized amount once a day to cleanse your piercing, PurSan is not only a more cost-effective option, but is also less time consuming! In our experience, we have found most clients using saline spray, are only willing to buy between one and two cans. When using Pursan you only need to commit three extra minutes of aftercare, while you are already showering. Proving PurSan to be much more convenient than other spray options.
Tried and Tested: Proven Effective.
Piercing and tattoo studios across the world have been using PurSan for nearly a decade. PurSan for piercing aftercare is safe, effective, and economical for clients and studios, and is a perfect combination with sea salt soaks. Whatever you recommend to your clients for aftercare, I am confident PurSan will be a convenient, inexpensive, and effective addition to their aftercare routine!
