SHOWA® 7502PF Biodegradable Accelerator-Free Nitrile Gloves for Sensitve Skin

SKIN-FRIENDLY GreenCircle® Certified Biodegradable Single-Use Latex-Free Gloves with Accelerated Biodegradation Process!

Versatile and affordable, single-use nitrile gloves are commonly worn by professionals in healthcare, manufacturing, food processing, laboratory and dental medicine for its’ protective barrier properties. Single-use gloves are not only essential to protecting the hands from contamination or infection, but they can help keep environments and materials cleaner as they minimize the spread or cross-contamination of germs and bacteria.

Unfortunately the glove designed to protect a wearer’s hands can sometimes inadvertently cause harm to the skin and lead to allergic contact dermatitis (a type IV allergy). This phenomenon occurs when a substance triggers an immune response in the skin and appears as a red rash with bumps and sometimes blisters.

THE PHENOMENON

If an individual wearing a nitrile gloves develops dry, itchy or irritated skin, they may believe they have a nitrile allergy but in most cases this reaction is not to the nitrile but rather to the sulfur-based chemical accelerators commonly incorporated in the manufacturing of single-use latex-free gloves.

Chemical accelerators such as dithiocarbamates, thiurams and mercaptobenzothiazoles (MBT) are used in glove manufacturing to speed up the linkage of molecules in natural rubber latex or in synthetic rubber latex like nitrile and vinyl. The accelerants transform the liquid materials into thin, strong, and elastic glove films.
