A fun and educational video showing how to test for nickel:
Nickel Solution™ by Athena Allergy is indispensable to anyone with nickel allergies or who may suspect they have sensitivities. If your jewelry or other metal object causes a red, itchy rash, you may be allergic. The good news is you can still wear your favorite items without fear of irritation by using Nickel Solution. This unique, 2-part system "detects" the presence of nickel in a metal object using Nickel Alert™, and then "protects" the wearer from nickel contact after applying a coat of Nickel Guard™ to that item. A quick, easy and effective way to avoid contact with nickel without giving up the items you love.
What Comes with Nickel Solution?
Directions for Use:
Please read the directions and warnings that come with Nickel Solution™ before using this product.
Two Step Process:
Nickel Guard eventually wears off, so test regularly with Nickel Alert and when you see "pink" on the swab, you will know it is time to reapply Nickel Guard. Nickel Guard is safe and easy to use and will not harm even your most valuable items. And, unlike clear nail polish, Nickel Guard does not contain Toluene, Formaldehyde or Dibutyl Phthalate, which can cause secondary contact dermatitis.
A Word of Caution: This product is flammable and contains strong fumes. Keep out of reach of children. Do not apply to skin. Do not take internally. Avoid contact with eyes. For use on metal objects only! Use only as directed by the manufacturer.
