Nickel Solution is a unique two-part system that gives you the freedom to wear the jewelry you love - not just "nickel-free".
This invaluable kit is super easy to use. It contains Nickel Alert, a dmg nickel spot test which is safe to test any metal item and know in 30 seconds if the metal contains even minute amounts of nickel. Nickel Alert is sensitive enough to detect the presence of free nickel at a level as low as 10 ppm (parts/million)—a threshold below which only individuals with the most pronounced sensitivity to nickel would experience a reaction.
One bottle of Nickel Alert is enough for 100-150 positive tests!
Nickel Solution also comes with Nickel Guard - a protective coating designed to bond with metal and proven to put a durable and clinically proven effective barrier between your skin and nickel. Formulated for sensitive skin, Nickel Guard is a lacquer that does not contain the chemicals formaldehyde, toluene, or dibutyl phthalate which may cause secondary skin reactions.

Nickel Guard (nickel barrier) forms an invisible micro-bond with the metal and will protect you from nickel contact. It is easy to apply, dries quickly, and provides lasting protection.

Nickel Alert™ allows you to easily test for nickel in any metal item — so your skin does not have to!
One bottle of Nickel Alert will provide 100 - 150 positive tests!
Dab 2 drops of Nickel Alert on a cotton swab. Rub the metal item firmly for 15-30 seconds with the swab. A pink-red color on the swab indicates nickel.
Do not reuse the swab.
To demonstrate a positive test, test a nickel coin. It contains 25% nickel and will turn the swab pink indicating nickel is detected.
Nickel Alert can be used to retest items coated with Nickel Guard to verify protective barrier is in place.
Nickel Guard: When nickel is detected, brush 2 - 3 thin coats of Nickel Guard onto metal where it touches the skin.
Let dry between coats.
Nickel Guard wears with use; maintain protective properties by retesting and reapplying as necessary.
Nickel Alert can be used to verify the protective properties of Nickel Guard are in place.
Nickel Guard can also be used for individuals with gold or cobalt allergies to prevent exposure to those metals.
