Bath Rugs with Latex
Bath rugs with latex backing have been the cause of many skin irritations for people who suffer from latex allergies. Although latex can be found in 40,000 products, people often overlook the fact that their bathroom rugs could be the source of their allergic reactions. The latex backing on these rugs can cause allergic reactions such as skin rash, watery or irritated eyes and difficulty breathing.
Products made with Vytex® Natural Rubber Latex (NRL), an ultra low protein latex material, offer numerous health, safety and environmental benefits to manufacturers and end users. Vytex NRL is an eco-friendly, scientifically advanced latex material with virtually undetectable levels of the antigenic proteins that can lead to latex allergies. Vytex NRL can be easily incorporated into existing manufacturing processes of natural rubber latex and could ultimately help people from developing reactions to latex.
If you have bath rugs with latex and have experienced various allergic reactions, please contact your physician about your concerns and consider being tested for latex allergy.
