Can you believe that? Recent studies show that the process of making a leather glove implies chemicals that are still present in high percentage in the end product. Which is potentially harming to our skin.
The substances registered by the German conducted study are chemicals like Chromium, Lead (both can cause allergic reactions), Aniline and Short-chain Chloroparaffins (both considered carcinogenic). You’d be surprised to find out that from a total of seventeen, only two pairs of gloves passed the test. And one of them was from H&M (the other from a German manufacturer, Bernd Vojtisek). Does this mean I won’t be wearing leather gloves any more? I don’t know. How about you?
