Against skin irritations and neurodermatitis

In the everyday life of consumers, as well as in the operational hygiene of many companies with direct physical customer contact, the strongly increasing use of plastic gloves has become visible. As a result, skin diseases are becoming more frequent, due to the prolonged use of plastic gloves and the excessive use of strong detergents, soaps and disinfectants.

ElephantSkin gloves for neurodermatitis patients

For people suffering from atopic dermatitis on the hands, plastic gloves are not an option. The constant wearing of plastic gloves, the allergic reactions and the accumulated moisture aggravate the eczema on the hands by irritating the wounded skin and causing severe itching. This prevents the healing process of the skin and new inflammations occur. Thus, sufferers feel trapped in an endless circle of itching and scratching.

Neurodermatitis patients are therefore recommended to use cotton gloves. Cotton gloves are gentle on the skin and also breathable, which prevents sweat from collecting under the glove.

ElephantSkin Classic gloves are made of organic cotton and are characterized by high wearing comfort. In addition, the gloves are breathable and allow moisture to escape under the glove.
Many neurodermatitis patients have already tested the Classic model and received good results: ElephantSkin gloves did not irritate their skin and thus relieved their discomfort. As a result, they were finally able to break the cycle of irritation-itching-scratching.
