There are plenty of latex free disposable gloves on the market in all kinds of thicknesses, sizes and colors. GRJ Health only supplies the best disposable gloves available so you can get the most bang for your buck. Whether you're after powder free gloves for sensitive skin or examination tested disposable gloves, we've got you covered.
What are the benefits of latex gloves?
Here’s a quick overview of what latex gloves can offer:
- Protect your hands from bacteria and other contaminants.
- Comfortable to wear
- Easy to clean
- Powder free
So, why wouldn’t I use latex gloves?
With so many benefits, it’s difficult to understand why someone wouldn’t use latex disposable gloves. But ultimately, it comes down to allergies and protection. While latex disposable gloves offer great protection against bacteria, they cannot be used with oil and grease. This is often a problem for those working in the food and beauty industries.
Certain proteins found in natural rubber latex can cause itchy skin, hives and anaphylaxis (which is a life-threatening condition.) If you experience even the mildest latex allergy symptoms, you should stop using latex gloves immediately and seek medical attention.
Alternatives to latex
Nitrile and vinyl disposable gloves are two of the most popular alternatives to latex. However, there are some key differences between these types of disposable gloves that you should be aware of before making a purchase.
Nitrile exam gloves are made from synthetic rubber, which is latex-free and ideal for those with a latex allergy. They are also more puncture resistant than latex gloves and provide better protection against certain chemicals.
Vinyl gloves are the most economical option and are popular in food preparation, where frequent glove changes are necessary. However, they are not as durable as nitrile or latex gloves and offer less protection against chemicals and other contaminants.
Now that you know a little bit more about the different types of gloves available, you can decide which type is right for you.
