SKIN TURNING GREEN?
The greening of the skin from certain jewellery is essentially due to the COPPER in those pieces reacting to the moisture, sweat, lotions and perfume on your skin. It's known as the oxidation reaction. The copper reacts with oxygen in the air, your sweat and skin oils creating a green layer of copper carbonate on your skin. Although it's harmless, it can look terrible and is discomforting for many people.
At HACKNEY NINE we do NOT use copper in our base metal. So be rest assured that your skin will not turn green from wearing our jewellery.
