Back on October 29th, I wrote a post about why we need a nickel free razor which features no moisturizing strip. You can read that here.
I emailed the letter I wrote to Bic, Schick, and Target (since I know Target has a generic line). I also tweeted Gilette since I wasn’t able to send an email to them, but they never got back to me. Actually, Schick was the only company who kindly answered me, yet they didn’t have a solution.
I’m practically the poster child for nickel allergy since my skin reacts so violently (just like you react to poison ivy), so I figured… who better to take this on than me?
SO many people visit my blog because of their nickel and chemical allergies. In fact, my third most popular post is “Did you know disposable razors are nickel laden?”
It’s time for a change, my friends. And that’s why I’ve turned to change.org and all of you fine people.
I believe that if we all band together, we can make the razor companies pay attention!
Strength in numbers, right? We ARE the consumers, after all.
