What is hypoallergenic jewellery?
Hyopallergenic jewellery is a unique class of jewellery which is less likely to cause an allergic skin reaction when worn for prolonged periods of time. There is no exact defined measurement for the word 'hypoallergenic' but the qualities of hypoallergenic jewellery are essential for people with sensitive skin to continue to express theselves by enjoying the jewellery they love. Although other metals can be classed as more hypoallergenic and less likely to cause a reaction, Gold, Silver, Platinum and even Stainless Steel may all still cause reactions to some wearers. And this is why we specialise exclusively in titanium jewellery, which makes TouchTitanium.com one of a kind.
"It is estimated that up to 17% of women and 3% of men are allergic to nickel."
"We work exclusively with pure titanium because it's hypoallergenic and biocompatible qualities are unmatched by any other metal."
Problem & Solution
Say no to nickel
Since the origins of high-street jewellery, Nickel has been widely used to make jewellery stronger and cheaper. However, Nickel is one of the most common allergens in the world and the effect this has on it's wearer can be a combination of itching, swelling, flaking and inflammation of the skin.
Research has proven that a growing number of people suffer from skin allergies and reactions, not only to Nickel but many other types of metals including Gold and Silver. We have yet to find someone allergic to Titanium and we have been in the business for over 35 years.
Titanium, the friendly alternative
Our Titanium products are designed to avoid any unnecessary skin contact with 'unfriendly' metals. We do this by replacing these parts or rethinking other designs to incorporate 'friendly' metal alternatives.
All of our products are made from commercially pure Titanium which is surprisingly light, reassuringly strong and fantastic to wear. We still provide our customers with Gold, Silver, Platinum and Palladium jewellery but these products are designed and adapted specifically to be as skin-friendly as possible.
Purity is important to us
At TouchTitanium.com, we work with commercially pure titanium which is over 98% pure titanium and the purest available to the retail industry. Many other precious or semi-precious metals are made up of an alloy of various other metals which lend qualities in turn to the final product. The purity of titanium is another strength worth singing about. Commercially pure titanium makes the hypoallergenic qualities of our jewellery the best they can possibly be. So, if your skin reacts to platinum, gold, silver, nickel, steel, or any other metal, why not consider giving titanium a whirl. It truly is an exceptional and unique metal.
