ALLERGIC TO NICKEL ? DANIEL RADCLIFFE TOO !

ALLERGIC TO NICKEL ? DANIEL RADCLIFFE TOO !

Harry Potter glasses

Daniel Radcliffe, the young star of the Harry Potter saga, knows what it means to be allergic to Nickel. Indeed, the eyeglass frames that he wore during the filming of the first episode of the Harry Potter saga contained Nickel, and caused him an allergic reaction and contact eczema!

Nickel allergy is very common and affects 10% of the population. For most people with this allergy, contact with an item that contains Nickel sets off allergic reactions and eczema like symptoms: rashes, redness, swelling, itching… This is called contact dermatitis or contact ezema.

Nickel is widespread in everyday items: costume jewellery, Jean buttons, eyeglass frames, coins, watch bracelets…

Daniel Radcliffe learnt this the hard way: during the filming of the first episode of the saga, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, he developed an allergy at the contact of his eyeglasses: a rash shaped in two perfect circles around his eyes. It took almost a week to understand that this was caused by his eyeglasses. They contained Nickel, and it turned out that Daniel Radcliffe is allergic to it… The eyeglasses had to be replaced by frames made out of hypo-allergenic materials.

If the movie had been filmed today, another solution would have been possible: have Daniel Radcliffe, alias Harry Potter, use Skintifique's Protective Cream HPS. This cream is the first in the world to protect the skin against Nickel, Chromium, or other irritating metals.

Based on CapturifiqueTM, a new exclusive and patented technology, this cream captures Nickel and other irritating metals at the surface of the skin, thus reducing their penetration in the skin… and therefore the skin irritation. Thanks to the Protective Cream, the skin is protected for up to 14 hours for most people!

If you are concerned with allergy to Nickel, Chrome or Cobalt, we recommend you have a look at Skintifique's skincare products; thanks to the exclusive CapturifiqueTM, products such as the Protective Cream HPS and the Moisturizing Lotion HP have the unique ability to prevent Nickel and other common metal allergens from penetrating into the skin and therefore to preserve the skin from the effects of these allergens.
