Accelerator-free surgical gloves to avoid chemical-related sensitivities

Hypoallergenic surgical gloves manufactured without the chemicals commonly known as accelerators (thiurams mercaptobenzothiazole, diphenylthiourea, diphenyl guanidine, dithiocarbamates) could literally be career saving for healthcare professionals who suffer from allergic reactions.

Biogel® NeoDerm® surgical gloves are manufactured in the material polychloroprene (neoprene) and allow allergy sufferers to use Biogel surgical gloves.

Powder-free and latex-free

Study shows no reactions

Biogel NeoDerm surgical gloves are safe for healthcare professionals susceptible to allergic contact dermatitis (Type IV allergic reactions) and to chemical additives, and minimize the possibility of glove-related latex protein sensitization. A clinical study on 25 prediagnosed Type IV allergy participants found no reactions when using Biogel NeoDerm1.

Reduce unnecessary costs

Allergies do not just affect the sufferer physically. A hypoallergenic glove free from accelerators, latex and powder may reduce unnecessary costs and suffering, including post-operative powder related complications.
