Chromium Allergy : Allergic contact dermatitis

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.

In most cases harmless, Chromium allergy can become bothersome and sometimes even painful. The symptoms are varied (rashes, redness, pimples…) and can be localized on a specific area following contact with the allergen or generalized all over the body.

It is most often referred to as allergic contact dermatitis. The area that is in contact with the object containing the Chromium 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 Chromium allergy.

How to prevent and relieve contact dermatitis related to Chromium allergy?

Skintifique has created the world’s first products that effectively protect skin from irritant metals such as Chromium, Nickel 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 Chromium & metal Allergy Pack, which is composed of:

  • Protective Cream HPS: it concentrated and non-occlusive formulation provides up to 14hours of protection against Chromium & irritant metals.
  • Moisturizing Lotion HP: moisturizes the skin deep down while protecting it from Chromium & irritant metals.
  • Cleanser P: a very gentle micellar lotion which cleanses, removes makeup and traces of Chromium & irritant metals from the skin.
