Why Does My Skin Turn Green When I Wear Jewelry?

Understanding the ins and outs of this green-skin phenomenon empowers you to make informed jewelry choices that perfectly match your style. And guess what? You don't have to bid farewell to bronze and brass just yet!

Understanding the Green-Skin Reaction

The green tint that appears on your skin when wearing certain jewelry is a result of a chemical reaction between the metals in the jewelry and the pH levels of your skin. This reaction is more likely to occur when you sweat or expose the jewelry to moisture. Although this occurrence can be quite surprising and disheartening, it is essential to remember that it is not harmful or dangerous to your health; and can simply be washed away with soap and water.

How To Stop Your Bronze and Brass Jewelry From Turning Your Skin Green?

Barrier Solution: Apply a thin coat of clear nail polish to create a barrier between your skin and the jewelry, preventing the copper from reacting with sweat and oils.

Clean and Store: Wipe your jewelry clean, we recommend using the sunshine polishing cloth after each use to remove residue. Store your jewelry in a dry place and store it in its pouch between uses to avoid exposure to moisture and humidity.

Alternate Your Jewelry: Give your skin a break by alternating bronze and brass jewelry with pieces made from precious metals like silver or gold.
