Moisturize Dry, Irritated Hands! Biodegradable Nitrile Gloves Featuring Patented EnerGel®
Versatile and affordable, single-use gloves are commonly worn by professionals in healthcare, 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 cleaner as they minimize the spread or cross-contamination of germs and bacteria.
Unfortunately the glove designed to protect a wearer’s hands can inadvertently cause harm to the skin.
Disposable medical gloves are impermeable to liquids and consequently hot to wear. Because impervious type gloves do not allow the skin to breath, this causes the hands to perspire heavily. For some PPE wearers, sweat can cause dry and irritated skin over time which could lead to a medical condition such as dermatitis/eczema. If skin conditions worsen, it can have devastating effect to one’s health and career.
If red, itchy rashes, inflammation, dry or cracked skin has you searching for a solution, perhaps you should consider latex-free examination gloves with moisturizing technology!
Prevention is crucial for healthy skin and consistent daily moisturizing helps protect the skin and fights dry, brittle skin but a daily regiment can sometimes be difficult to upkeep. It's also important to be proactive rather than reactive as many professionals only start to moisturize once they notice a hot spot but unfortunately this is often too late. Gloves with moisturizing release agents can be of great assistance especially if they’re worn all-day, everyday
