Why unpowdered disposable gloves?Latex allergies are mostly caused by latex proteins. The allergy is triggered by
direct contact with the skin or by inhalation.
Gloves with a high content of latex proteins are
powdered to prevent sticking together.
Powder binds the latex proteins and is released into the air
when the gloves are put on and taken off and can therefore be inhaled. In
immediate type allergy, the
first symptoms appear after 5 to 30 minutes
: irritation of the mucous membrane, runny nose or asthma hinder breathing.
Examples of allergic reactions: Respiratory distress, itchy skin, sweating and acute circulatory problems.
