I started stretching my ears about two years ago, and its been a long process that requires quite a bit of patience. Thankfully, I only have one more size to go up until I am at the size I want to stay at (0g). Being vegan, when I first started stretching my ears I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to find vegan aftercare products to care for my ears while they healed, but luckily I found a few of the very best vegan aftercare products there are. Here are a few vegan products you might consider if you are thinking about stretching your ears:
Holey Butt’r is a must have for vegans who are thinking about stretching their ears. This vegan ear care cream is only $7.50 and a little bit of it goes a long way to maintain stretched ear lobes. Holey Butt’r contains a natural blend of emollients and moisturizers like Karanja oil, Jojoba oil, and Soy oil, making it an effective antiseptic, antifungal, and antibacterial agent that leaves skin feeling soft and smooth and prevents it from drying out or feeling irritated. If you’re thinking about stretching your ears, I highly recommend this product!
If you are looking for a way to clean your ears after you stretch, then SimpleCleanse is the way to go. This organic moisturizing cleanser is blended with ingredients like hemp seed and aloe, leaving your ears feeling soft and alleviating irritation at the same time. With a price of $9.99 a bottle, this stuff can’t be beat!
SimpleCare ($9.99) is an organic plant and leaf based extract that provides relief from irritation caused from ear stretching, such as redness or inflammation. If you have itchy, painful ears then SimpleCare is worth every penny. All it takes is just a little dab, and your ears will be looking and feeling better in no time! With ingredients like Neem and Comfrey Leaf, SimpleCare helps to moisturize and replenish the mineral and fluid in the skin and is also 100% alcohol free. Say goodbye to dry, itchy ears, and hello to smooth healing.
Jojoba oil is great for stretching ears because not only does it soften and moisturize skin, it also helps ease the taper or plug through your ear, making stretching a little easier, and a little less painful. Jojoba oil is also great because it thickens ear lobes and reduces scar tissue and blowouts. By massaging Jojoba oil on your ear lobes daily, you can help maintain healthy, thick lobes and reduce the size of blowouts over time. Jojoba oil is also ideal for protecting and pro-longing the life of organic jewelry, and especially for moisturizing wooden plugs. Whenever my ears are feeling dry or itchy, or even sometimes when they smell a bit funky, I just massage a bit of Jojoba on my ears or jewelry, and it does the trick.
