Disposable Gloves Ruining Your Skin?

Gloves Infused with Moisturizers Offer Preventive Alternatives to Traditional Gloves

Many professions require workers to wear disposable gloves as they serve A irritated hand resting on top of a gloved handmultiple purposes; they protect the wearer from hazardous or infectious materials, or help maintain hand cleanliness when working with paints, grease and other staining substances. They also protect products from cross-contamination – think pharmaceuticals, food service and clean rooms.

The problem is that disposable gloves can do quite a number on your hands, especially if you are changing gloves several times a day, interspersed with frequent hand washing.

Healthcare professionals, clean room employees and those preparing food know how wearing gloves the majority of the day affect hands, from cracking and drying to rashes and infections. Anti-bacterial gels are filled with alcohol, only making that option worse.


Aside from the very real dangers of latex allergies, impermeable gloves impact wearers by drying out the hands. When you wear a single-use glove, your skin produces moisture in that enclosed environment. That moisture does not evaporate the way sweat does over the rest of your body. Instead, perspiration stays trapped in the glove creating an excess of moisture.

If gloves maintain moisture, that’s good, right? No. The moisture in the gloves signals your hands to stop producing the natural oils that keep skin healthy and soft. These areas of moisture can also quickly turn into rashes and infections, as warm and damp is the perfect environment for bacteria to thrive. Over-moisturizing afterwards can easily make things worse, aggravating sore spots and convincing your body enough moisture is present, when in effect it is only temporary. 

Say goodbye to these problems and protect your most important tools – your hands.  MDS is pleased to offer a series of coated gloves that moisturize hands without any residue during use, greatly increasing the hydration your skin receives.
