Eco-responsible nitrile gloves that biodegrade within 1 - 5 years, without leaving behind harmful particles. They are virus protected and suitable for health care workers and beauty care services. To put this into context, regular nitrile gloves take 100+ years to degrade while leaving behind harmful particles.

Biodegradability: Our gloves are made of a mixture of nitrile and organic material that our manufacturer blends together which is why they perform the same way regular nitrile gloves do while still holding the capacity to degrade quickly.
The organic compound additive attracts micro-organisms (bacteria, fungi etc) that literally consume the glove material. Once this process is complete the only thing left behind is H20, CO2 and methane. Our manufacturing partners also conducted studies on how this process affects soil and plants that are exposed to this and found that it has no detrimental effects on their germination or growth patterns.
Eco: ASTM D5526, ASTM D5511 & ASTM E1963
Tested under high-solids anaerobic digestion conditions by ASTMD5511 (aka this is a true landfill test with the product surrounded by buried garbage).
Virus/Bacteria/Fungi: EN ISO 374-5:2016
Eco-responsible barrier film used during Elim Callus Removal. It can also be used to protect work surfaces from bacteria, viruses and liquids.
It is thicker than regular plastic wrap and good for all surfaces.
100% compostable means that PLA products are fully renewable. It can be converted back to monomer and polymer, or, it can be bio-degraded into water, carbon dioxide and organic materials.
PLA is much more sustainable than regular petroleum-made plastic. PLA is the common name for Polylactic Acid or Polyactide. PLA is made from starch rich plants such as corn, wheat, and sugar beets. These plants are first milled to separate the starch, from which unrefined dextrose is processed. The unrefined dextrose goes through a fermentation process and the result is lactic acid.
The tested PBAT polymer is a fossil-based, biodegradable polymer, which is used amongst others to produce biodegradable, certified compostable bio-waste bags (according to EN 13432) or biodegradable in soil certified mulch films (according to EN 17033).
Our wrap is a combination of PLA and PBAT bioplastic which is why it is able to break down outside of an industrial facility.
• Material: PLA + PBAT
• 30cm (11.8 inches) wide x 100m (328 inches)
• 15 microns thick
• Stick on zipper to cut wrap (found inside roll)
• 100% compostable
• Performs better than standard plastic wrap as it is thicker
Biodegradability: Industrially composted within 90 days.
If home composted or sent to a landfill, this wrap decomposes within 9 months only leaving CO2 and water behind. Our wrap is a combination of PLA and PBAT bio-plastic. Combined with its considered thickness these materials are able to break down outside of industrial composting facilities. We've tested both in a home compost scenario and buried in dirt with no aeration and this material completely decomposes. Weather variables can interrupt the 9 month timeline in colder climates but full decomposition always occurs.
