Are there any preservatives in the outer case of Natrelle saline breast implants?

I have recently been diagnosed with a contact allergy to preservatives called methylchoroisothiazinolone/Methylisothiazinolone & iodopropynyl butylcarbamate. Are any any of these preservatives in the outer case of the Natrelle saline breast implants? I have gotten rid of them everywhere, but am still having reactions. Has anyone else out there experienced anything like this?

Thanks for asking. It is important that you contact the implant company or go to the website for your question. They have the scientist and doctors who can answer your questions. Better to be complete in your investigation.

I have never heard of this, but you might call Allergan and ask them whether these preservatives are in the outer shell of their implants.
