Food Safe aluminum,which is actually Pure Aluminum, is the same aluminum used to make aluminum cooking utensils. And food safe aluminum is safe on your skin.
Pure aluminum is LEAD FREE. Test results, verifying the chemical make-up of the our Aluminum, are available to our customer upon request. Feel free to send a Convo or an e-mail and I will send a PDF attachment containing this information.
Aluminum has less skin reaction than sterling silver. It is essentially HYPO-ALLERGENIC.
Pure Aluminum is a non-reactive metal. The lack of chemical reaction is a challenge to jewelry makers because the chemicals used to create color alterations in copper and silver will not react with the Pure Aluminum. Inks and paints must be used to create the same look.
ToxGuide for Aluminum states:
"Aluminum is poorly absorbed following either oral or inhalation exposure and is essentially not abosorbed dermally...."

Aluminum in the food supply comes from natural sources, water used in food preparation, food ingredients, and utensils used during food preparations. The amount of aluminum in the diet is small, compared with the amount of aluminum in antacids and some buffered analgesics. The healthy human body has effective barriers (skin, lungs, gastrointestinal tract) to reduce the systemic absorption of aluminum ingested from water, foods, drugs, and air. The small amount of aluminum ...
