What are ManiGlovz® UV Protective Manicure and Sunblock gloves made of?

ManiGlovz® UV Protective Manicure and Sunblock gloves are made using UV 50+ Protective Compression Tricot (some with hydrating Aloe Vera Microcapsules). Comprised of a combination of polyester super microfibers and Lycra, our max-dry performance fabric resists runs and provides phenomenal four-way stretch. Most ManiGlovz® are 82% Polyester and 18% Lycra.

What does UPF 50+ mean?

Frequently Asked Questions

What does UPF 50+ mean? The UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) is a numerical rating given to clothing to indicate how effectively the fabric blocks ultraviolet (UV) radiation. A UFP rating of 25 means that only 1/25th (or 4%) of the UV radiation can penetrate the fabric. Unlike SPF, which only expresses a sunscreen’s protective value in terms of limited wavelengths of light, UPF applies to a range of broad-spectrum UVA and UVB radiation. The highest  UPF rating a garment can be assigned is 50+. All the fabrics we source to make ManiGlovz® UV Protective Manicure and Sunblock gloves are rigorously tested and rated in accordance with AATCC183, ASTM26544, and ASTM6603, the highest standards for UV fabric testing.

How do I care for my ManiGlovz®?

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I care for my ManiGlovz®? Well, the good news is that you don’t have to wash them very often because most of our ManiGlovz® material undergoes antibacterial treatment, which prevents stains and odors. But if you feel like you must, either gently handwash or cold-cycle wash then air dry. Please do not dry clean your sunblock gloves.
