I am HIGHLY allergic to Potassium Dichromate... Does anyone know if they put that chemical on blue jeans? I have been breaking out from my waste down and I have avoided leather and other things I know contain Potassium Dichromate.. If anyone knows any information about this please post! Thank you!
Hi Kristen, If you are allergic to Potassium Dichromate, I think, you will break out if you come in contact with any form of chrome. Most leather, some fabric (even Jeans, although I couldn't be sure that the jeans you wear contain chrome), bleaching and disinfecting agents can contain Chrome. And even lotions and creams. You should go to an allergist to get a full list of items that contain chrome - not just Potassium Dichromate. More reasons to use un-bleached - preferably organic clothing and lotions. Hope that helps. Here is link that I found that contain some items that contain chrome. http://dermnetnz.org/dermatitis/chrome-allergy.html
