What are the best metals for sensitive ears?
The common belief is that earrings labeled "hypoallergenic" will not cause any adverse reactions. However, as we previously discussed, the term hypoallergenic simply means "less likely to cause an allergy," it does not guarantee that your ear piercings will not react.
At Tini Lux, we prefer to use the term biocompatible to describe our earrings. Biocompatible is defined as the capability of coexistence with living tissues or organisms without causing harm. Our earrings are made with metals that are capable of coexisting with the human body without causing harmful reactions.
The goal of the following information is to help educate people on metals commonly used in fashion jewelry and what makes them safe or unsafe for those with metal allergies.
