DermaSilk® Therapeutic Gloves are knitted from undyed medical grade pure silk bonded with an antimicrobial "shield" that has been used in hospitals for over 20 years on medical gowns and textiles for infection control. This Microbe Shield™ inhibits the growth of fungus and bacteria without releasing chemicals onto the skin and remains bonded to the silk even when washed.
The result is a gentle stretchy glove with a comfortable fit that promotes the healing of hand eczema or dermatitis.
