So some people are worried about whether the pigments added in nitrile gloves are toxic and whether they will have adverse effects on the human body.

For this concern, here is Longhui's answer: As long as the gloves meet the standard, the gloves are non-toxic, and the pigments in them are of course very safe.

First of all, no matter what pigments are used in gloves, the corresponding national standards require them to be safe. Therefore, the selection of raw materials for compliant disposable gloves must meet relevant requirements to ensure that the gloves can be qualified so that they can be smoothly circulated in the market.

In the production process of nitrile gloves, pigments are added during the raw material period. If there are obvious differences in the finished gloves, the relevant national standards will require the finished products to be tested to see if they meet the relevant requirements. Therefore, in order to ensure product compliance, the nitrile gloves suppliers will control the pigment process to ensure that the product meets the requirements.

Therefore, as long as we use qualified gloves, the safety of the paint is guaranteed and will not cause harm to the human body. So please don't worry about it.
