I was just wondering if a lot of people have heard of or used Squalene Oil for gauged ears and other skin abrasions. I have been using it for many years now (since i was a kid) and it helps out so much in so many different aspects. It also contains vitamin E in it was well which is great for gauged ears. It can be found in several different vegetable oils but it was pretty much first extracted from the liver of cold water shark's in the 1900's by a Japanese scientist. If you would like to read more about it here is a link

Any pro's and con's you guy's see using this compared to vitamin e for gauges ears?

I've never heard of it before, so researched a little.

Sounds like it'd be suitable, although it seems very expensive for something which may not have any benefits over more commonly used alternatives.

 

Major downside is that almost all commercial sources in raw oil form involve killing a shark.

I couldn't help myself but put the pedant reply re 'gauges'.

Gauge is a measurement. If i were to gauge my stretched lobes i would find them to be 2", and they would then indeed be gauged. They would also be stretched.

If i stretch them, they will get bigger, and are stetched lobes. If i measure them i have gauged them. Two different actions.

Stretched lobes are no more 'gauges' than a moving car is a 'speed'.

I have not used Squalene Oil for my ears but I like Jojoba Oil. I am vegan and do not approve of animal products. I use Jojoba because it is very close to the oil your skin produces naturally. It promotes new skin cell growth and also has healing properties.

They are also making it from different olive oils and vegie oils as well. But yeah i'll have to go and pick up some of that jojoba. What store do you normally get that from? Just like Vitamin Cottage? Yeah the fact they do use cold water sharks is a shame. But yeah i'll switch to the jojoba oil and see how that works. It actually doesn't really cost to much cause the amount you use is so little one bottle can last quite a while.

I order it online from GNC. I think I payed about $20 for a bottle and I've had it for about 6 months. A little goes a long way and a bottle seems to last forever. You can also get it from health food stores and some pharmacies but I find it easier to just get it online.

I guess i'm comparing cost to jojoba, which cost me £15 for 500mls, and can last a couple of years with daily use.

UK sources i could find was only shark unless you wanted capsules…..

 

So anyone who has used it notice any difference to jojoba, vit e etc?

Yeah it seems like the cost of the two are pretty close to the same. And the thing with the capsules is that you only use a very small amount of the oil that you end up wasting alot more cause of the large amount of oil in the capsules. I just got my ears scalped out from 00 to 1" so they are still healing a bit but i definitaly want to hear some storys tho if anyone has noticed a difference from jojoba vs vit e.

Is it safe on unhealed areas?

The only oil i know which is, and is beneficial, is neem. I think jojoba, emu etc are avoided on open areas due to lack of sterility.

Yes the squalene oil is great for unhealed areas, i got my ears scalped from 00 – 1in and i use the squalene twice a day and they healed up great. it even works on minor cuts or other areas that have had an abrasion etc. I wouldn't use this as an alternative for general piercing healing tho. It heals the area with very little room for scar tissue to build up making scaring a lot less noticeable. But it depends on what you use it on tho. For scarification's i wouldn't use it type thing cause it could make the design less noticeable (not unless that's the look you want for your transformation). Sterility is very important when it comes to oils but the bottle that this one comes in has a dropper cap so i put two drops on a q-tip (one q-tip per ear) to keep from cross contamination.

on this link you can find jojoba oils for pretty cheap $5.00 for 1oz, which lasts me anywhere from 1-3 months. http://www.bodyartforms.com/pr…..=cleansers on the same sight you can find holy butter which is also very helpful. I personally use the gift pack on http://onetribe.nu/category/11/ with the three oils, they have helped my ears alot making them very healthy as well as the sea salt soaks on the same website, very soothing.
