Why To Prefer 100% Silicone & Latex Free Wristbands?
Beware of Cheap Wristbands Made of Latex
Shopping for wristbands online? Beware of vendors whose prices look too good to be true. In many cases, the lowest price you'll find is for wristbands that are made with a combination of silicone and latex. Some vendors supplement their silicone products with up to 80% latex, making the bracelet cheaper to produce but also less durable and potentially dangerous.
How Do I Know If I'm Buying Latex Free Wristbands?
Work with a vendor who states that all their wristbands are "100% Silicone". With little regard for public safety, some vendors will sell "custom silicone wristbands" even though their product is actually made with a combination of silicone and latex.
Even worse, vendors will advertise that they offer "100% Silicone" and then pull a bait-and-switch, increasing the cost of the wristbands up to $0.15 per band later in the checkout process for customers who choose an option for 100% silicone or latex FREE wristbands.
Latex Allergies Are Life-Threatening
The American Latex Allergy Association estimates that up to 3 million people in the United States are allergic to latex. Latex allergies should be a big concern for anyone producing wristbands that will be distributed to the general public. For people who suffer from latex allergies, coming into contact with latex can have serious repercussions, and can even be fatal. Symptoms can range from mild to severe, and can include one or more of the following:
Allergies Due To Latex
If exposure to latex continues, allergy symptoms may include a severe and life threatening allergic reaction called anaphylaxis.
