Latex gloves are made to protect healthcare providers from bacteria, blood-borne viruses and other infections when treating patients. These gloves are required in most medical settings and must be disposed of in the proper way once the provider is done using them. Latex gloves come in various forms, such as Dental Care Latex Gloves, Sterile Latex Surgical Gloves and Latex Chemotherapy Gloves.
Latex is the most commonly used material to make first aid gloves because it is lightweight and easy to create, along with being inexpensive and elastic enough to fit hands of all sizes. Latex has a tendency to stick to the skin, so they are usually coated with powder to keep this from happening, however, they are offered in a powder-free version. There are also Aloetouch Latex Exam Gloves which are designed to soothe and hydrate the provider’s hands as they wear them because hands can become dry from constantly wearing gloves.
