Q: What the heck IS Alchemy anyways?
A: Alchemy is comprised of water and a proprietary polymer. The polymer is what adheres to your jewelry and protects it from tarnishing. It also creates a barrier that keeps your skin from coming in to contact with the metal thus keeping your skin from being irritated if you are sensitive or if your skin turns colors from jewelry.
Q: How often do I spray it?
A: Once a month is recommended for pieces that you wear a lot. Just hold the bottle about 6-8 inches away from the jewelry and give it a nice coating. If you sweat a lot or wash your hands a lot (and don't take your jewelry off), you might want to spray again after 2 weeks. It's also a good idea to treat several pieces at once because the Alchemy's spray pattern is generous and this way you don't waste product. Put down a paper towel, fill it with jewels and spray away!
Q: Is there a smell?
A: Nope. When Alchemy dries, you can't see it, feel it or smell it.
Q: Does it really work?
A: Duh it works!
Q: What can I spray Alchemy on?
A: Lots of stuff! I get a lot of customer feedback about earrings. You don't have to be sensitive to metal for earrings to make you itch, or cause knots or get scabby. I have customers who haven't been able to wear earrings in years and this has opened up the door for them! So spray it on earrings, rings, bracelets, necklaces, eyeglasses, buttons on clothes, belt buckles, etc. Just don't use Alchemy on any piercings that touch a mucus membrane (i.e. no lip or nose rings).
Q: Can I spray Alchemy on my real jewelry and gemstones?
A: Yes. Alchemy dries clear and will not disrupt the integrity of your jewelry. It is recommended for costume (cheap jewelry as well as sterling silver) and fine jewelry. In fact, customers have reported that if they spray Alchemy on their fine jewelry after it has been cleaned, they don't have to clean it as much.
Q: Can I swim with my jewelry on if I use Alchemy?
A: Ok folks. Jewelry should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off everyday. You should avoid showering, swimming, cleaning, etc while wearing your jewelry. Beauty products (body wash, soap, perfume, lotion), chlorine, and cleaning products can compromise your jewelry. Alchemy helps protect your jewelry but it is water based to be sensitive on your skin. Perfume, soaps, cleaning products can break down the formula faster where you have to apply more often.
