Q: 
Will all Sabona Bracelets turn my wrist green?
A: 
Sabona Copper Bracelets will leave a green mark on your skin. It can be removed with soap and water or lemon juice. Copper, when in contact with the skin, form chelates with human sweat (sometimes seen as a green deposit under the bracelet) and is thus absorbed through the skin. “Think of a bracelet as a ‘time-release’ source of copper.” – Dr. Ray Walker, Univ. of Newcastle, Australia. Sabona products other than copper bracelets will not turn your wrist green.
Q: 
How do I clean my Sabona Bracelet?
A: 
Clean your Sabona as you would clean your other jewelry. Use a good jewelry cleaning cloth to keep the outside polished and the inside clean. Sabona Athletic Bracelets may be hand-washed in mild detergent.
Q: 
How strong are the magnets in Sabona bracelets?
A: 
The strength of the magnets in Sabona products ranges from 1200 gauss to 1800 gauss, depending on the style.
Q: 
Can I wear my Magnetic Wristband next to my watch?
A: 
Only if your watch is a wind-up. Any watch requiring batteries will be drained.
Q: 
Can I coat the bottom of my Copper Wristband so it doesn't turn my arm green?
A: 
Some people do coat the bottom of their wristband with a clear nail polish. But remember that if the copper is not touching your skin directly, then you are not getting any copper into your system.
Q: 
Is there a coating on my Copper Wristband?
A: 
Yes, there is a temporary clear coat on the outside of your wristband. The coating will start to wear off in a short time. Simply clean the rest of the coating off the band.
Q: 
How often do I need to replace my Copper Wristband?
A: 
About every two years.
Q: 
Why did my Copper Wristband break/crack?
A: 
Your Sabona Copper Wristband should be worn at all times. It should only be taken off for cleaning and when in salt water or chlorinated water. Your wristband is a metal and with the constant bending of taking your wristband off and on it will break. Sometimes if the size of your wristband is too big, it will kink when you bend it to fit your wrist. That kink will eventually crack or break.
Q: 
My silver wristband is black!
A: 
Our copper wristbands are plated with the purest silver. If your wristband is black then it has tarnished and a silver polish will clean it up.
