Good quality foam latex mimics human skin in many ways. It’s why it is used for goalkeeper gloves. Goalkeeper gloves are like a “2nd skin“, intended to protect your hands from high-velocity shots and hold onto the ball.
Like your skin, high-quality foam latex is susceptible to environmental elements. Like soaking your hands in warm water for a long period of time will cause your fingers and hands to wrinkle, foam latex can wrinkle when KEEPER BALM is applied to them. That’s because KEEPER BALM helps your gloves retain moisture, necessary to maintaining their pliability and their 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 exchange.
If you want your gloves to always “look new“, then don’t wear them. 😉
