Glove Powders
Glove Powders: What You Need to Know
Today, virtually all manufacturers of powdered surgical gloves use a cornstarch derivative, USP Absorbable Dusting Powder, as a donning agent. However, clinical evidence regarding the hazards of glove powders for both healthcare professionals and their patients continues to mount.

Medical Glove Powder Report (article)
Medical Glove Powder Report
"For the purposes of this document, total particulate matter [glove powder] includes dusting or donning powders, mold-release compounds, and manufacturing debris. Dry lubricants such as cornstarch, silicone etc., are used to make donning gloves easier and to prevent gloves from sticking together during the manufacturing process. Cornstarch, which meets the specification for absorbable dusting powder in the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP), is the most common lubricant for patient examination gloves".
