Powdered vs non-powdered latex gloves?

Powdered latex gloves will typically have cornstarch added to them to help the user put them on or don them. Although useful, the cornstarch will bind with latex proteins and possibly affect anyone with latex allergies that use or is close to the product. Non-powdered and lightly powdered gloves are good alternatives. The powder used in latex gloves is a special cornstarch-based powder that is certified by the (USP) United States Pharmacopeia.
