We set out with the mission to protect hands at all costs, especially in light of how popular gel manicures are and how dangerous they may be - Kim Motola, Founder and CEO of ManiGlovz

The Beauty Innovation Awards Program, the industry’s most robust recognition platform for the innovators and leaders of the Beauty industry, today announced that for the third straight year ManiGlovz, the perfect hand accessory paired with added skin anti-aging protection, has been awarded “Accessories Product of the Year” in the 2022 Beauty Innovation Awards Program. This awards program aims to evaluate and recognize the most outstanding and innovative companies, services, and products revolutionizing and advancing the Beauty industry through goods, services, and technology.

ManiGlovz are a line of ultra-chic, dermatologist recommended , Allure Magazine approved UPF 50+ UV protective gloves to be used when receiving gel manicures. The gloves work to protect against the harmful and aging UV and LED rays that are omitted from the gel curing lamp. ManiGlovz’s powerful UPF material blocks over 99% of these rays.

ManiGlovz can also be used for sun protection, driving, and even post laser or cosmetic treatment protection. Additionally, the accessories are water-resistant and, therefore, can be used for outdoor activities or just for comfort and style.

All fabrics sourced to construct ManiGlovz are rigorously tested and rated in accordance with AATCC183, ASTM26544, and ASTM6603 - the highest standards for UV fabric testing.

ManiGlovz also offers an extra layer of protection from germs as well as protecting your skin from the irritation of excessive use of sanitizer. ManiGlovz can be hand-washed and re-used.

“We are thrilled to receive this award for the third year in a row. We are even more committed to looking out for the health and wellbeing of our valued customer base. We set out with the mission to protect hands at all costs, especially in light of how popular gel manicures are and how dangerous they may be,” said Kim Motola, Founder and CEO of ManiGlovz. ”We ultimately found that there were many situations where our hands are vulnerable to harmful rays and sunblock just isn't enough. I met with the top dermatologists in the United States as well as the Skin Cancer Foundation and I made it my mission to source powerful UPF 50+ material and then went about picking a plethora of fab and fun prints to create our collection of UV Protective Manicure and Sunblock Gloves. You can pick your pair and match your mood, your outfit, even your polish!”

“Both UV and LED lamps have UVA rays which result in age spots, wrinkles and potential skin cancer. To truly protect the delicate skin of the hands, it's recommended to use UV protective gloves. Not just in the nail salon, but any situation where hands are exposed to sunlight like driving. Gloves with UV protection are ideal for preventing blemishes, skin aging and cancer,” said Travis Grant, Managing Director, Independent Innovation. “Congratulations to Maniglovz on being our winner, for the third year in a row, of the ‘Accessories Product of the Year’ award. Their well-sourced and well-constructed products protect against sun damage, while also going the extra step by shielding hands from as many UV radiation sources as possible. Congratulations again!”
