While there is a price difference between the standard use examination gloves and the safer Nitrite or non-latex gloves we will be using. There is a clear difference in safety. We hear of so many lovely clients suffering from this common allergy and having to remind health care workers, partners and dentists on a regular basis to take caution.
We decided since there is such a straight forward solution, an easy alternative: we are making the permanent switch.
It’s understood that numerous people have an allergy to latex and many more are sensitive to it, resulting in possible skin complaints and discomforts or worse.
We discussed at the end of the last year the option of going fully latex free throughout our store. Both to prevent ourselves from developing issues and furthermore to stop and incidents regarding yourself, our client.
However the journey has not been easy, with all new equipment there can be a trial and error stage of finding suitable suppliers in strength, quality and availability as well as the many things a piercer loves: stretchiness, comfort, grip etc
But it gives us great pleasure to announce that now and forevermore all services undertaken in Blue Lotus will be made with Nitrite examination gloves or similar. Never latex
There is no cure to a latex allergy, those with it can only avoid contact with latex
