I'm allergic to nickel and cobalt - help!

I'm allergic to nickel and cobalt, and they show up in "iron oxides" in all kinds of eye make-up.  Are there any products that don't have iron oxides?

Hi jilnel.  I'm not familiar with nickel and cobalt free products on our site.  There could be many derivatives of both those ingredients.  I recommend speaking with your physician or seeing if there are blogs that reference nickel and cobalt free products. I'm sorry I can't be of much help, but I hope that those resources will give you the appropriate information needed.


Good Luck!

Hi I just joined the website and found your question - I have EXACTLY the same allergies and have spent years trying to track down iron oxide free eye make-up and I've finally found it!  100% Pure cosmetics are a Los Angeles based company and all their eye make-up is iron oxide free and totally natural. Their website is fantastic and their customer service is really good.I've been allergic to everything else, but this stuff is fine. They have a great selection of colours and the quality of the products is really high - usually when it's chemical-free eye make-up the quality isn't that great. I've just got their mascara and people have asked what brand I'm wearing because it looks great - really lengthening and not clumpy. I've just ordered their gel eyeliner and pencil and some shadow. Good luck - I hope they work for you too!
