Eco-responsible accelerator-free nitrile gloves that biodegrade within 3 - 5 years, without leaving behind harmful particles. They are Virus/Bacteria/Fungi protected and classified as a class 1 medical device.
Accelerator-free nitrile gloves are nitrile gloves that have no chemical accelerants used in the production process. They are made using the same raw material as regular nitrile gloves but with a slightly different formula without the accelerators. Because of this, they are better for the artist and the environment.

Our gloves are made of a mixture of nitrile and organic material that our manufacturer blends together which is why they perform the same way regular nitrile gloves do while still holding the capacity to degrade quickly.
The organic compound additive attracts micro-organisms (bacteria, fungi etc) that literally consume the glove material. Once this process is complete the only thing left behind is H20, CO2 and methane. Our manufacturing partners also conducted studies on how this process affects soil and plants that are exposed to this and found that it has no detrimental affects on their germination or growth patterns.
