Nitrile Gloves goes Natural with COATS®

Nitrile goes Natural with COATS®

For those of us who suffered the plight of chicken pox during childhood, we were probably treated with a soothing oatmeal bath. Back in the day, an oatmeal bath could provide serious relief from irritated and itchy skin. Today the soothing power of oatmeal is making a comeback in a brand new revolutionary Nitrile glove.

What is COATS®?

COATS® is a new, revolutionary glove coating technology. It is an acronym that stands for "Colloidal Oatmeal System". The technology that COATS® created is patented and recognized by the FDA as a skin protectant. Not only do these unique gloves provide all the puncture and chemical protection of standard Nitrile gloves, but they also provide relief for dry and itchy skin.

The creators of COATS® have been able to harness the centuries old therapeutic benefits of colloidal oat, which we all know from our chicken pox days, and combine those benefits with 21st century technology to create a glove that actually has positive affects on the condition of your skin.

This type of colloidal oat is not just the sort of oat you would eat for breakfast, but rather a complete "starch-protein complex" which is derived from finely ground oats that have had their hulls removed. The unique patent that COATS® has, is found in the process that makes this revolutionary material essentially water soluble so that it can be used in Nitrile powder free gloves.

Why is COATS® better?

Anyone who has worn standard Latex or Nitrile gloves knows how hands get hot, sweaty, and are unable to "breath". On top of this discomfort, these standard gloves typically leave your hands feeling dry, itchy, and irritated.

COATS® contains a special element called "Oat Beta-Glucan" which, combined with the properties of colloidal oat truly provides relief from many skin irritations as well as aids in skin retaining natural moisture.

With this wonderful new glove coating technology, you now have access to a glove that provides a natural skin-calming protection against unwanted moisture as well as skin irritation and discomfort.

How does COATS work:

  • Creates a physical barrier between your skin and the outer  nitrile glove
  •  COATS® is a proprietary process in which a colloidal  oatmeal coating is applied to the don or interior side of the glove
  • The coating helps absorb moisture and salt secretions while effectively pH buffering the skin
  • All natural colloidal oatmeal is recognized by the FDA as a skin protectant drug and naturally moisturizes the skin
