For the second year in a row, Skintifique has been invited to present some of its scientific results at the Gerda 2015, the leading medical congress for dermatologists and allergologists. The congress will take place in Brussels, from September 24 to 26, 2015.
At the event, Skintifique will make a scientific communication on “Evaluation of products for metal allergies: feedbacks after one year of use in real-life conditions”. This communication presents the feedback on the use of the Protective Cream HPS and of the Hydrating Gel Plus HS for allergic contact dermatitis caused by metals. The poster will also present the results of feedback from doctors or other people having used Skintifique products. Will we give you more detail on this subject very soon.
Contact allergy caused by metals, especially by Nickel, Chromium or Cobalt, affects more than 10% of the population. This allergy is caused by the contact with objects containing these metals, be it in daily life (such as costume jewellery, coins, watches, computers, tablets, mobile phone, belts and leather accessories) or objects in the professional life, which concern especially people working in the construction industry, hairdressers, health professionals or cashiers. When in contact with such objects, the metal ions (tiny particles, invisible to the naked eye) penetrate the skin and trigger eczema for allergic persons, which is usually localised at the place of the contact and is called allergic contact dermatitis.
