Innovative New Antimicrobial Gloves Offer A Safe Pair Of Hands For Daily Life
British start-up, ReAnti, has announced the launch of its brand-new antimicrobial gloves which have been designed to keep hands sanitised during everyday activities.
Comfort and safety go hand in hand
While we’ve all been using hand sanitiser during 2020, there are many who have turned to ordinary or plastic gloves as an additional layer of protection. While these types of gloves offer a physical barrier for the wearer, they also pose a risk of contamination which may contribute to the spread of COVID-19. ReAnti gloves are crafted from a self-sanitising fabric which harnesses the power of HeiQ Viroblock technology; a textile treatment which has been proven to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 in an independent third-party institute of virology*.
ReAnti gloves are scientifically proven to be self-cleaning and offer consistent protection against harmful germs and bacteria as well as being super-comfortable and reusable. Created specifically for daily life, ReAnti gloves provide a sanitary barrier between our skin and high frequency touch points encountered during shopping, travelling on public transport and public facilities such as lifts, escalators and card payment machines.
The science bit
While we’re all being careful to maintain social distance and to wear our masks, studies have shown that the COVID-19 virus can survive on some common surfaces such as metal, plastics or wood for up to several days**. This means that a level of risk exists every time we touch a surface in a shop, station or restaurant or an ATM machine. As we all work together to try to reduce the spread of the coronavirus, ReAnti gloves could help reduce the risk of surface-to-surface transmission.
The science behind ReAnti gloves uses an advanced silver and a vesicle technology to inhibit the growth and persistence of microorganisms on the surface of a textile. This treatment is used commonly in medical fields and the active ingredient is silver chloride which has been certified as safe and sustainable as all its ingredients are cosmetic grade, bio-based and recycled.
Premium protection all-day, everyday
ReAnti gloves can be reused over extended periods and remain extremely effective for up to 30 cold washes. Made from a premium sportswear fabric and available in 2 sizes, the gloves are touch screen enabled and feature a silicon grip for comfort and useability. Easy to remove when necessary thanks to an adjustable wrist attachment, the gloves are centrally designed for extended use in non-medical settings and are a longer-term, cost-effective alternative to single-use plastics. ReAnti gloves are available now through our website below and on Amazon.
