My issue with vasoline is it breaks down latex and nitrile gloves in under 1/4 hour, i'm not going to contaminate myself or my customers. Saying that i did ues it for 6 years with no problems.

It breaks it down, but how long do you really wear one set of gloves? Each time I've been tattoo'd, the artist went through tons of gloves. Each time they had to adjust anything, they had to change them. I've also never heard or, or seen vaseline break down a rubber glove that fast.

The sales rep recons 15 minuts on latex and 20 on nitrile, and the breakdown is not visable, just enough for pathogens to enter, i dont know about you but i usualy have broken skin around my finger quticles - nail edges, scary stuff.
I have been trying different stuff, some of the vegan lubes work ok, nothing i wood recomend yet. And yeah, i change gloves regularly, but find myself getting into the work, and might go for 40 or 50 minuts without stopping and changing gloves.

I change my gloves quite often..
I use the ninja gloves
(got a great deal on a case of cases)
I have never seen my gloves break down that fast
( not to say it does not happen)
Would agree a pair can last me 40 mins or so
But I have never had any issues that I know of
- just my opinion

hey folks, I know this is reviving a fairly old thread but the topic is an important one. Simple solution is olive oil. Veg friendly, no petrol, and a small dab goes a long way. Just my 2 cents.
