The Difference Between “Latex,” “Natural Rubber,” “Natural Rubber Latex” and “Dry Natural Rubber”

Allergy to natural rubber latex was first documented in the late 1970s. The condition now commonly known as “Latex allergy” is caused by the proteins produced from the rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis) that are still present in the products manufactured from natural rubber latex. This allergy is not only caused by the proteins, but also by the chemicals and/or residues thereof.
