1. Affect contact dermatitis. This situation is most common. Usually, it only manifests as redness, itching, dry or chapped skin on the hands.

Latex gloves

Then let me teach you how to distinguish the quality of latex gloves?

A good pair of latex gloves should have a clean and beautiful surface, yellow, curled, high tension and air tightness. It is difficult to rely on our hands for testing, which requires professional latex glove manufacturers to test. What we can do is look at the color. White, white latex gloves are full of additives. The whiter the color, the more additives, and the more additives, the less tension. However, there are many gloves coated with yellow paint that will change the color of the gloves, so this is not completely reliable. Finally, we must check the degree of folds of the glove. It's like a pair of latex gloves. When opened from the package, gloves with high glue content will not wrinkle, and the lower the glue content, the more wrinkles. If a pair of gloves is wrinkled and whitish, there is very little glue inside. The reason we all use latex is because latex is stretchable and flexible. There is nothing better than latex.
