Humectants. That’s why they wrinkle.
Good quality foam latex is used for goalkeeper gloves because it mimics human skin in many ways. In fact, goalkeeper gloves are like a “2nd skin“ that is intended to protect your hands from high-velocity shots and grip the ball.
Like your skin, high-quality foam latex is also susceptible to environmental elements. If you soak your hands in warm water for a long period of time, it will cause your fingers and hands to wrinkle. Foam latex can do the same when KEEPER BALM is applied to it, because the ingredients in KEEPER BALM are made of of HUMECTANTS that naturally draw moisture into the latex.
Those humectants are oils and waxes specifically chosen for their qualities, ensuring that your gloves maintain their pliability and exceptional grip
The wrinkle effect may not be the most attractive part of KEEPER BALM, but the fact that your gloves will NEVER lose their grip, should be an acceptable compromise.
After all, what’s more important? Exceptional grip or gloves that look like you just took them out of the package?
