Chromium food allergy
Chromium allergy is a skin disorder that affects between 1 and 3% of the population. Hypersensitivity to metals (Nickel, Chromium, Cobalt …) is widespread even though many people do not know they are allergic.
Chrome is very present in commom leather items, in cosmetics (blue, green and yellow tones) or in metals (often associated with nickel), and it is also very present in foods. Many foods contain Chromium, and some contain more than others, such as beef, livers, eggs, tomatoes, broccoli, green beans, whole grain products, and so on.
Chromium is a trace element that helps in the metabolisation of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, and plays a role in the action of insulin (blood sugar regulator). However, people who are allergic to Chromium may have symptoms of skin reactions (through sweat) related to ingestion of foods with a higher chromium content.
In most cases harmless, the symptoms are varied (rashes, redness, pimples, …) and can be localised on a specific area or generalised all over the body.
The Metal & Nickel Allergy Pack is the first combination skincare system to protect your skin from metals (Nickel, Chromium, Cobalt…) & irritants.
A 3 step solution:

The Moisturizing Lotion HP (6.76 Fl oz / 200ml) offers a unique patented protection from metals that trigger eczema.
Step 2: Cleanse & Remove

Step 3: Intense Protection
The Protective Cream HPS (0.67 Fl oz / 20ml) prevents metals from penetrating the epidermis. Efficient for up to 14 hour.
Here are photos of a 38 years old paver forklift truck operator who suffers from contact dermatitis caused by his Chromium allergy. He is in contact with Chromium as part of his professional activity. 2 weeks after starting to use the Protective Cream HPS at work during the day, and the Hydrating Gel Plus HS at night, his hands have regained a normal aspect.
