Urushi contains a compound that can cause minor skin irritation, to a more severe allergic reaction, depending on the individual. While urushi can cause skin irritation in its raw, wet state, once it has completely hardened, it is absolutely food-safe and one of the most durable natural materials.
Should you experience alarming inflammation from touching urushi, or from simply being in the presence of urushi, please remove yourself from the room and consult a doctor for immediate medical attention.
For most people, touching urushi will cause minor irritation and itchy skin that can last up to three weeks. Proper handling like wearing gloves and a long-sleeve shirt help to prevent accidental contact with urushi.
POJ Studio is not liable for any adverse reactions caused by urushi. If you accidentally touch urushi, massage the affected area well with any plant-based oil straight away, like you would when removing make-up, and thoroughly wash with soap thereafter.
