Fighting Chromium allergy

Chromium allergy

What is Chromium allergy?

 

Hypersensitivity to metals like Chromium is very common. Although many people are not aware that they have a metal allergy, it affects about 10 to 15% of the population. It is estimated that 1 to 3% of the population suffers from a Chromium allergy.

That allergy causes numerous symptoms, including various forms of eczema or dermatitis. The most commons are contact dermatitis (contact eczema), i.e. when skin comes in contact with objects or pollutants containing Chromium, the skin breaks up in rashes that can be very painful. There are many everyday objects that contain Chromium, including metal ones such as coins, telephones, keys, jewelry… Leather items such as wristbands and shoes also often contain Chromium. As a result, people with Chromium allergy often suffer from contact eczema and rashes that affect their everyday life.

Finally, it should be emphasized that one usually is not born with Chromium allergy: it is acquired through cumulative exposure to the metal. The more one is exposed to objects or pollutants which contain Chromium, the more chances to develop the allergy. This is why even people who are not allergic should beware of Chromium risks, and protect their skin from this metal!

Innovative products that provide real benefits to people with Chromium allergy

 

Below is the case of the contact dermatitis of a 38 years old paver forklift truck operator who suffers from an allergy to the Chromium contained in the cement which he handles as part of his professional activity. He has been using the Protective Cream HPS at work during the day, and the Hydrating Gel Plus HS at night to help his skin to regenerate itself. 2 weeks later, his hands have regained a normal aspect.

Testimonials of persons suffering from Chromium allergy and using Skintifique products

 

I have been using the Protective Cream HPS for 6 months by now, with no problems during complete work days, i.e. almost 11 hours. During these 6 months, I think I have used  the pair of very nice earrings that I bought when I started to test the creams 50 or 60 times.Catherine, allergic to Chromium

I call it the magic cream. I’m completely dazzled by its protective effect on me. It is both efficient and easy to use. I have been able to wear some jewelry that I love, but have not previously been able to tolerate, and this for whole days or evenings.Katia, allergic to everything
