Clothes Allergy | Vytex Natural Rubber Latex

Clothes Allergy

Having a “clothes allergy” could mean you are experiencing side effects to certain clothing you wear. These side effects include dry and itchy skin, skin discolorations and even a burning sensation. The real culprit behind a “clothes allergy” may actually be the elastic threads that are woven within the clothing.

The threads found in clothing can be made from natural rubber latex. If you are someone who is allergic to latex, these threads can be triggering your skin reactions. If you are unsure about having a latex allergy, then pay attention to the clothing you wear and the products you come into contact with. Repeated exposure to products that contain natural latex can result in significant discomfort if you are a latex allergy sufferer.

Vystar® Corporation created Vytex® Natural Rubber Latex (NRL) because the world needs better latex products such as the threads found in clothes. Vystar’s research team devoted more than seven years to finding a way to significantly reduce the allergy-causing proteins typically found in traditional natural rubber latex. This development means that clothing can be manufactured with this new material and retain all of the desirable qualities of latex, with the added benefit of substantially reduced protein levels. These reduced levels significantly decrease the risk of developing allergic reactions to latex.

If you believe you suffer from a clothes allergy, contact your physician or healthcare provider about your concerns and consider being tested for latex allergy.
