Redness, itching, cracking, bumps, swelling … They can all be the results of skin allergy. When an allergen triggers an immune system response, the skin reacts with an allergic reaction that usually is a form of eczema or dermatitis.
Common allergens are:
- Nickel and other metals such as Cobalt and Chromium. See our metal allergy page.
- Fragrances and ingredients frequently used in many skin care products. Not Skintifique’s (See below).
- Ingredients in cleaning products.
- Antibiotic or other medicines.
- Sunscreens, bug sprays, latex.
- Plants, including poison ivy.
- Allergy to pollution (usually triggered by the metals and other potentially toxic elements present in pollution).
You can be allergic to one or several of those allergens without even being aware of it. For instance, some people might think they are allergic to their jewelry or leather shoes or their watch when they are actually allergic to the metals used to manufacture these products. Here is a list of common everyday items that often contain allergens such as Nickel, Chromium and Cobalt: earrings, watches, jeans buttons, belts, most leather accessories, coins, cell phones, tablets, computers, make-up, door-cuffs, keys, cement, kitchenware and construction materials…
If you have a skin allergy, the first thing to do is to avoid contact with what triggers the allergy. Adopting a new skin care routine is also important. Indeed, you should choose products with well-known and safe ingredients. And the shorter the ingredient list, the fewer risks of skin reactions!
Skintifique products are particularly suitable in that regard as each ingredient has been carefully selected for its safety profile. And they contain the fewest possible ingredients: between 5 and 13 ingredients which is 3 to 4 times less than standard skin care products.
In addition, several of the Skintifique products have been designed to actually protect skin from some of the most common allergens (Nickel, pollution, etc.). Of course, if you are allergic to those, you may really want to give our products a try.

GREAT PRODUCTS FOR SENSITIVE AND ALLERGIC SKIN
Great for guitarists!
My husband is absolutely thrilled because he’s only applied the cream twice and there’s already at least a 60% improvement. He is a guitarist and has been unable to play for years now and although he’s visited many Dermatologists, nobody ever diagnosed a nickel allergy.
