The quality and style of the certified nickel free belts, belt buckles, earrings, and watches offered by NoNickel were evident to the physicians attending the conference. The nickel free belts were a huge hit, with several physicians ready to place orders for themselves. When questioned specifically about these belts, Ms. Dow responded that while “there is a wide range of price and style, each and every product is tested to assure that it does not contain any nickel”. This is how her company is able to offer Certified Nickel Free™ goods that are guaranteed to never test positive for nickel.
This certification comes as welcome news for these physicians whose nickel allergic patients suffer from severe rashes that diminish their quality of life. For years, they have tried products with a “hypoallergenic”
At the conference exhibit, Ms. Dow displayed several beautifully designed, nickel free earrings that are handmade by an artist who suffers from nickel allergy. The time and effort that has gone into these works of art was recognized by the physicians who had an opportunity to view these nickel free products. They also realized immediately the importance of offering these earrings. Frequently, it is through piercing that an individual becomes sensitized to nickel, thus leading to the inability to wear the very products piercing was meant to allow. “There is a huge need for truly nickel free jewelry”, Ms. Dow stated as she emphasized that NoNickel products meet that need.
Following the conference, some attendees received samples of Nickel Solution™ an easy-to-use and invaluable kit that allows users to test for nickel in metal items with Nickel Alert™ and then to provide a protective barrier by coating the metal item with Nickel Guard™. Lea and Michael Dow believe that this kit will allow allergists and dermatologists to see for themselves how simple managing a nickel free lifestyle can be. Nickel Solution, used alone or in combination with the certified nickel free products offered at NoNickel, can help make painful and itchy nickel rashes a thing of the past.
