Metal allergy is a skin disorder that affects around 18% of the population. Traditionally Nickel, Chromium and Cobalt have been the most important contact allergens.
In most cases harmless, metal allergy can become bothersome and sometimes even painful. The symptoms are varied (rashes, redness, pimples, …) and can be a localised reaction limited to one area but can also be a generalised systemic reaction.
It is most often referred to as allergic contact dermatitis. The area that is in contact with the object containing the metal to which you are allergic will react. Dry skin, rash, severe redness, discolouration of the skin, or fluid-filled blisters that can cause crusts and dander … are all symptoms of metal allergy.
How can metal allergy be relieved?
Skintifique has created the world’s first products that effectively protect skin from irritant metals such as Nickel, Chromium and Cobalt. They benefit from an exclusive patented technology called “Capturifique”, which captures Nickel and other irritant metals at the surface of the epidermis, limiting their penetration into the skin as well as the harmful effects.
These products are combined in the Nickel & metal Allergy Pack, which is composed of:
- Protective Cream HPS: it concentrated and non-occlusive formulation provides up to 14hours of protection against irritant metals.
- Moisturising Lotion HP: moisturises the skin deep down while protecting it from irritant metals.
- Cleanser P: a very gentle micellar lotion which cleanses, removes makeup and traces of irritant metals from the skin.

What are the results of Skintifique products on metal allergy?
Below are photos of a woman suffering from dyshidrotic eczema on both hands due to a Nickel allergy. After using the Protective Cream HPS to protect her skin against contact with Nickel, the Moisturising Lotion HP to moisturise her skin by day, and the Hydrating Gel Plus HS to repair her skin by night, a very clear improvement can be seen.
Testimonials of persons suffering from Nickel allergy and using Skintifique products
I tested the Protective Cream HPS. It was the Doctor Badulici who advised me to try it. I apply it directly on my skin before touching an object containing Nickel or Chromium. And I can confirm that it is very efficient! With only one application, I am protected for at least 12 hours.
I tested it on my earlobes before wearing costume earrings (which cause every time redness and itching). And it was … a miracle. This cream, applied locally, creates a protection against this kind of irritant metals. No reaction, no pain: it’s a revolution for my skin. For me, it is a totally effective treatment!
I put this cream after my face lotion and my primer. It protects from metal irritants such as Nickel and Chromium. I put this under my makeup.
The cleanser removes the black marks that costume jewellery creates on my skin, and I use the protective cream to apply on my ears, wrists and fingers before wearing costume jewellery.
