Jeff is Professor in Medicine in Boston. A few years ago, he found out that he is allergic to the Nickel in his wedding ring: often times throughout the year, his Nickel allergy begins acting up, he got rashes underneath the wedding ring, and he could not keep it on anymore. Needless to say, his wife was not happy 😀

Being a science professor, he first figured out and demonstrated that the wedding ring contains Nickel.

Then he decided to test whether Skintfiique's Protective Cream HPS could protect his skin, and to do a small controlled study.

What Jeff did and what he observed

Following a rash caused by a skin reaction to his wedding ring, he took off the ring and waited a few days for the irritation and rash to subside.

Then he started to use the cream, generously applying it in the morning on his finger skin, and waiting a few seconds for the Protective Cream HPS to penetrate before putting the ring back on (he takes off his ring every evening, and puts it back first thing in the morning).

At the end of the day, he would continue his normal routine: taking off the ring before going to bed, and rapidly cleansing his hands to remove all impurities accumulated during the day.

He repeated this procedure for a month, carefully checking his finger status every day.

During the entire month, the allergy remained dormant and he had no skin reaction to his ring.

After a month, he stopped using the cream and within days an allergic reaction ensued!

Needless to say he is hooked.

What Jeff says

“I use the Protective Cream HPS before I put on my wedding ring, which used to give me rashes. Now, I do not have problems anymore and my wife is happy ! The products on the market that claim barrier function either don’t work or make the reactions worse ! The Protective Cream HPS from Skintifique is the first and only cream available that works for me. Based on what their scientists told me, it also allows the skin to breathe so I know I can use it over long periods of time.”

So what does it mean for me?

If you are concerned with any of the eczema and dermatitis related conditions mentioned above, you should definitely consider the possibility that you have an allergy to Nickel and other metals (Chromium, Cobalt).

To know for sure, you should ask a dermatologist or an allergist to do a specific diagnostic. The most common ones are called "Patch Tests", or "contact hypersensitivity tests". For these tests, small quantities of potential allergens (including Nickel, Chrome and Cobalt) are applied to the skin usually on the upper back. The patches must stay on for 48 hours. After removing the patches, if the skin is inflamed, then you are confirmed allergic to the metals.

If your skin reacts to the above items, and if you have been diagnosed to be allergic to Nickel (or Chromium, or Cobalt), you may use Skintifique's Protective Cream or, for a full routine, the Nickel Allergy Relief Pack. Thanks to the exclusive CapturifiqueTM technology, the Protective Cream and the Moisturizing Lotion can trap metal allergens at the surface of the skin and prevent them from entering into the skin; consequently, they prevent or limit the skin break-out and rashes, even when the skin has been in contact with items that contain the Nickel or other metal allergens.
