Synthetic gloves usually refer to nitrile and vinyl gloves. Find a puncture-proof glove that does not cause a latex allergy. Nitrile gloves fit the skin like a second skin, and vinyl gloves are looser like some you may have seen for food service.
Have a latex allergy? This category is for you. Whether you need something skin tight and puncture proof or loose and puncture proof, synthetic gloves may work for you. Latex gloves were what was around first, but people quickly find that many people had a latex allergy. Thus, industries came up with nitrile and vinyl gloves (among others) so that everyone in professional and personal activities that would require gloves could use them without getting rashes or allergic reactions.
