Medline Industries: SensiCare Latex-Free Line

Medline’s SensiCare with Aloe Vera revolutionized the industry as the first synthetic polyisoprene surgical glove in the world. Unlike other companies that rely on third-party suppliers for their polyisoprene needs, Medline manufactures its own raw material. The gloves are made from Isolex™, a proprietary synthetic polyisoprene. This material has a molecular structure virtually identical to natural rubber latex without the harmful latex proteins. As a result, SensiCare surgical gloves are softer, more elastic and more comfortable to satisfy clinical needs and support safety initiatives. SensiCare with Aloe Vera is a powder-free, latex-free glove that contains pure, freeze-dried aloe vera that helps add moisturizing properties. In response to market demand for SensiCare with Aloe Vera, Medline expanded its polyisoprene portfolio to eight different SensiCare options, including a number of specialty surgical glove ranges to meet the needs of facilities across the country.
