Most protective gloves have a single color, white or transparent, but there are exceptions. Those are nitrile gloves. Are colorful nitrile gloves poisonous?

Nitrile gloves are non-toxic, and nitrile gloves are rich in color due to the addition of pigments in the production. Therefore, it is worrying whether the pigments added to nitrile gloves are toxic and have adverse effects on the human body. There are many kinds of pigments added to nitrile gloves. This worry is simple: as long as the gloves meet the regulations, the gloves are non-toxic and the paint is safe.

First of all, no matter what pigments are used in gloves, the corresponding national standards require them to be safe. For example, in the national standards for disposable gloves, GB7543-2006 "Disposable Sterile Rubber Surgical Gloves", GB10213-2006 "Disposable Medical Rubber Observation Gloves" and so on. There is a clear stipulation that any paint used should be non-toxic. Therefore, the selection of materials for disposable gloves that meet the requirements will certainly meet the relevant requirements to ensure that the gloves are qualified and can be circulated smoothly in the market.
