Our New Year's Resolution - stopping YOUR nickel rash!
As our team prepared to launch this new site, our focus was to provide information to empower our customers to achieve a nickel free life, liberated from the uncomfortable symptoms of nickel allergy!
It's really quite simple, too. For those who have been diagnosed with nickel allergy, simply eliminate the nickel and the nickel allergy symptoms will disappear! The first step is always to find the source of nickel in daily living. Nickel Alert™ allows for easy, at-home testing of metal items to determine if there is nickel content. Nickel Alert is so sensitive, it will detect minute traces of nickel in metal in seconds. We find that these commonly used items are those that are tops on the nickel allergy sufferers list: belt buckles, metal buttons and jean studs, earrings, and wristwatches. If nickel is found in these items, the choices are either to protect the skin from that metal or, if at all possible, replace that item with one that is guaranteed to be nickel free.
Athena Allergy is proud to offer regionally crafted nickel free belts and jewelry that come with a lifetime guarantee to never test positive for nickel! Our handcrafted belts are made with genuine leather and paired with nickel free buckles; many of these belts are matched with titanium buckles which are recommended by dermatologists for metal allergies. Our jewelry line is comprised of handcrafted earrings, bracelets, and necklaces along with nickel free sterling silver post earrings. We also offer Certified Nickel Free™ Buttons and Rivets to replace any of those that failed the nickel test!
Perhaps after a season of shopping for others, replacing all the nickel-laden products isn't an option right now. Nickel Guard™ is a protective barrier that can be used on many metal products to protect your skin from nickel. Clinically proven, this lacquer has been formulated without formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, or toluene - chemicals known to cause skin irritation. Nickel Guard can be brushed onto metal items (without movable parts) to protect the skin from nickel contact. A great gift for yourself should be Nickel Solution which contains one bottle of Nickel Alert and one bottle of Nickel Guard - test for nickel, then protect your skin!
Welcome to the new Athena Allergy, Inc. site and to your nickel free new year!
