What is the difference between a copper

How long should I wear my Sabona
It’s best to wear the bracelet constantly.
Wearers report that the products provide them the most benefit when worn all
the time, even at night or when washing.
How often do I need to replace my Sabona
It’s generally best to replace your copper
wristband approximately every two to three years. This is because the copper in
the bracelet will slowly wear away.
How do I clean my Sabona bracelet?
Use a good quality jewellery cleaning cloth
to keep the outside polished and the inside clean. You can purchase cleaning
cloths from us along with your bracelet for an extra £1.00 per cloth. Clean the
underside of the bracelet every one to two weeks to avoid a build-up of dirt
and grime which can cause a skin irritation if it blocks the pores. Do not use
any abrasive material on the surface of the bracelet as this can damage the
look, especially if the bracelet is plated. Instead, buff gently with the cleaning
Can I wear my Sabona in the shower or
We recommend that you don’t wear the Sabona
Athletic Bracelets while showering or swimming as they are largely made of
fabric and therefore not waterproof. All other Sabona bracelets are fine to
expose to water.
Will the bracelet turn my wrist green?
Any bracelet that contains copper will
leave a green/black mark on the wrist, caused by the copper residue. This is
harmless and is a sign that the copper is being transferred to your body. This
natural reaction can easily be cleaned off the skin with warm soapy water.
Magnetic bracelets do not cause discolouration.
Which bracelet is best – a copper
bracelet or a plated bracelet?
There is no difference in effect between
the copper, silver-plated or gold-plated bracelet, as all three are solid
copper bracelets. The plating is on the outside surface only – for decorative
effect – so the copper is still visible and active on the underside.
When will my bracelet start to work?
Copper, magnetic and minus-ion therapies
are unproven in the scientific world, so we cannot claim that the product will
work for you. Everybody is different, but some customers report that they feel
benefits within a few days, others within a couple of weeks.
Is it safe to wear a Sabona bracelet?
Sabona Copper Bracelets are entirely
natural and will not cause any adverse side effects. In some rare cases people
are allergic to copper – if this happens remove the bracelet immediately and cease
wearing. (Symptoms of allergic reaction).
