What is this test?

A trace element that plays a role in glucose metabolism. It has the atomic symbol Cr, atomic number 24, and atomic weight 52. According to the Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP85-002,1985), chromium and some of its compounds have been listed as known carcinogens. Chromium is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Cr and atomic number 24. While allergies to costume jewelry and piercings are relatively easy to identify by those who suffer from them, Chromium allergy can sometimes be difficult to diagnose. Yet, many objects contain Chromium and this allergy can be very severe. It is sometimes difficult to identify the presence of Chromium, because these objects are not always made of metal. If you take the example of leather, Chromium salts are often used for the tanning, mostly for poor quality leathers. The small spots that appear on your skin when you are wearing your watch are not necessarily caused by a heavy perspiration, but can also be the consequence of the presence of chromium in the bracelet. Chromium is also found in pigments used in cosmetics. A green or yellow color is generally the sign of chromate ions. Clothes in these colors often also contain some. For allergic persons, the high Chromium content of some foods can also cause allergic reactions. Several foods contain a high level of Chromium: tomatoes, broccoli, lettuce, turnips, radish. To limit your skin exposition to Chromium, you need to avoid as much as possible the sources of exposition. This is unfortunately not always possible, and you therefore need systems which minimize contact. Gloves or clothes can protect the skin, but cannot stop metals from penetrating the skin when they are conducted by perspiration for example. The Protective Cream HPS helps to protect the skin from contact with these irritants, by capturing specifically the metals, including chromium. It is trapped at the surface of the epidermis, and cannot penetrate the skin, thus minimizing the risks of allergic contact reactions.
