Due to the fragile nature of the material required for the gloves, small tears will occur in the material or seams of gloves due to friction or movement when putting on gloves or during normal use.

These tears will not reduce the moisture retention benefits of the gloves, particularly if worn with cotton gloves.

However, please note, if the tear is extensive (more than 4 cm), we recommend replacing your Dermrelief Moisture Gloves with a new pair.
