Hi Ain, who are you referring to when you mentioned about someone that have very sensitive skin to rubber glove? The consumer or production worker?  If your concerning to consumer, actually we do have nitrile gloves. This one is suitable for those that have sensitive skin instead of using natural rubber gloves. Nitrile is waterproof, greaseproof, oil proof and most importantly chemical resistant to a range of common chemicals and substances.
