New and Different Aftercare Product: Formula 1138

formula 1138 Aftercare Spray

A while back, I received some correspondence and samples of a new aftercare spray, "Formula 1138" from the company's founder, Dan Terry. He provided me with some very interesting technical and scientific information about the liquid, and it clarified that this is something different from any other aftercare product I've seen or used. He says Formula 1138 is all-natural, safe, and non-toxic. One of the active ingredients, HOCL, is a biocide that does not break down cellular tissue and only works to eradicate pathogens.  

I have put it on cuts and scrapes to excellent effect, though haven't had any healing piercings to try it on personally. Dan has done a successful year-long study on its use in piercing aftercare with 250 clients. I have been intrigued by Dan's product and asked him to talk about it in his own words....

Fantastic Review of The Piercing Bible

Amazing review on Google Books that I hadn't seen before:

To call this book "the definitive guide" is an understatement. This book shall remain the definitive guide for the next hundred years. As a piercee and a piercer I can say with honesty that there is nothing that I know that isn't in this book. Against it's intended use, this book is an invaluable tool for any body piercer to further hone their skills and gain a better understanding of many details that commonly get ignored in the industry.

Everyone considering a body piercing should read this book. Knowledge is power, and knowing better what to expect when walking into a piercing studio will ensure a quality piercing that you can enjoy for the rest of your life. The savvy acquired from reading this book will help you recognize good, clean studios from sub par, inexperienced ones, which could potentially save your life.
The author has a very straight forward presentation of her decades of accrued data. There are no frills or fluff in this book. She lays everything out directly with a subtle wit shining through that made me chuckle dozens of times.
