    I have a nickel allergy. Can I use my Philips hair removal product?

    Updated on 2021-08-11
    Our hair removal products have been dermatologically tested to ensure that the nickel part of the shaving foil does not cause a nickel allergy.

    Lady shavers and body groomers with foil shaving elements usually contain nickel. Prolonged contact exposure to nickel, such as wearing jewelry, body piercings and eye glass frames may cause a nickel allergic contact dermatitis (NACD). However, due to the short contact time and intended use of these and other hair removal products, there will not be enough nickel released or absorbed into the skin to cause a NACD.

    The high-quality stainless-steel grade used within our other products contains none or a very limited percentage of nickel only and does not release enough nickel to cause a NACD or even a nickel allergy.

    If you suffer from a severe nickel allergy, consult your doctor if it is safe for you to use this device.
