EnerGel® Hand Conditioning Technology Soothes Skin, Reduces Inflammation and Irritation

Wearing single-use type gloves all day every day can cause more skin-health problems than the dangers from which they are worn to protect against in the first place.

If you suffer from dry, cracked or irritated hands, then be sure to check out these nitrile exam gloves with EnerGel® moisturizing technology.

As an added bonus, these latex-free gloves  also fully decompose in landfill thanks to EcoTek® accelerated biodegradability technology!

There are countless applications and industries that require disposable hand protection, both for worker safety and to prevent product damage, infection or contamination. 

Single-use gloves are designed to form a thin and tactile non-permeable protective layer between the outside environment and your hands, but once a glove is donned, the environment underneath begins to change yielding a new set of risks for the wearer:

It doesn’t get any better when the gloves are removed either.  Frequent hand washing and sanitizing are critical against the spread of viruses and important for good hand hygiene. Unfortunately many skin cleansers strip the natural elements in the skin that help promote hydration and it can lead to damaged hands. This volatile combination leads to increases in skin irritation, such as dryness, chapping and cracking, which can create  more serious conditions such as chronic contact dermatitis. A case of contact dermatitis is not only a health issue for the worker, but the discomfort felt while inflicted can decrease productivity which can also be costly to the employer. 

Recognized by the Center for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC), contact dermatitis is one of the most common types of occupational illnesses. With an estimated annual cost exceeding $1 billion, dermatitis constitutes 90-95% of all cases of occupational skin disease with symptoms of itching, swelling, redness, flaking and scaling skin. OSHA’s Safety Pay calculator indicates employer’s cost at $20,000 for a case of dermatitis.

Single-use gloves are a necessary precaution but without taking steps to promote good hand hygiene, gloves quickly become a source of discomfort that if unchecked, can lead to unwanted skin issues. What is unknown to most people is that the old single-use gloves are almost a thing of the past.


Fast forward to today and there new innovative glove technologies that enable workers to perform better; be more comfortable longer; and prevent any of the hand-health issues associated with prolonged wearing of conventional gloves.

Single-use latex-free gloves that have coatings of Aloe Vera are a perfect solution for dry, irritated hands that perform high-risk jobs. As durable nitrile protects your hands from outside contact, the Aloe within soothes hands by holding in your skin’s moisture.


The negative effect of prolonged glove usage can now be managed by selecting a latex-free glove with an Aloe Vera inner coating. These innovative glove products have solved skin-health issues associated with frequent hand washing and wearing the older conventional types of single-use gloves.

Available in unique styles, SW® Sustainable Solutions  Nitrile Gloves with EnerGel® Moisturizing Technology actively hydrate and rejuvenate the hands for all-day comfort and better long-term health.

Dermatologically accredited by the Skin Health Alliance (SHA), this patented, next-generation EnerGel® technology assists the body’s healing process by immediately delivering 2-times more skin moisturizing benefits than standard Aloe technology for healthier, more hydrated skin. This proprietary coating actively manages the skin’s natural pH balance® to discourage microbial growth that can lead to infection. Manufactured directly into the glove, this specially formulated inner glove coating only releases as the glove is worn and will not leave any trace residue or stickiness. EnerGel® penetrates deep into the skin layer, deploying key Aloe polysaccharides, helping to retain moisture and ultimately reducing inflammation and irritation.

Benefits of EnerGel™ Coating:

  • Enhanced water retention and hydration within the outermost skin layers (epidermis). This is achieved using three specific molecular sizes of the natural Aloe Vera polysaccharides and improved low-molecular-weight NMFs in the present Aloe.
  • Long-lasting hydration that is uncompromised by frequent hand washing.
  • Usually, the Aloe polysaccharides stay on the skin’s surface due to larger molecular size. The patented EnerGel process reduces this to a size that can easily penetrate skin.
  • Enhanced skin soothing and reduced skin inflammation/irritations due to increased Aloe concentration.

Keeping your hands healthy is just as important as washing your hands. Damaged hands make you more susceptible to infection and disease. And today you don’t have to settle for less. SW's proprietary EnerGel™ technology improves overall hand health and counters the negative effects associated with wearing disposable hand protection while reducing environmental impact with GreenCircle® certified EcoTek® sustainable technology.
