Allergic Skin Reaction | Vytex Natural Rubber Latex

Allergic Skin Reaction

Experiencing an allergic skin reaction can be caused by many factors.One of the most overlooked causes is from natural rubber latex. Standard natural rubber latex (NRL) contains 13 known allergens, and consumer groups have called for warning labels on packages that contain NRL.Vytex® NRL has developed a patented process that has lowered the levels of antigenic proteins associated with latex as a raw material.

Vytex NRL is an eco-friendly latex material that significantly reduces the antigenic proteins found in natural rubber latex.Produced through novel, patented processes, Vytex NRL retains all the positive qualities of latex – including barrier protection, tensile strength, elasticity, comfort and fit – with virtually undetectable levels of the antigenic proteins that can cause latex allergies.

An allergic skin reaction caused by latex is a common problem, and more individuals are educating themselves on ways they can lower the risk of irritations.

The advantages of Vytex NRL include:

  • Can replace traditional NRL in virtually any manufacturing environment.
  • Retains the desired characteristics of NRL and is considered safe for use by individuals who are not latex-sensitive.
  • Can be adopted as a standard NRL source material due to its low antigenic proteins and the reduced probability of developing latex allergies in non-sensitized individuals.
