# Can I use X3 despite a latex allergy?

We do have people with latex allergies that use the X3 but they usually take some precautions such as, wearing a longer sleeved shirt, wearing gloves, and making sure to wash after your workout to prevent the latex proteins from irritating the skin.

The bands are made using natural latex, so if you have an extreme allergy to latex, these bands may not be right for you. We have been looking into non latex bands and have been unable to find any that can provide the resistance and durability to be usable with X3 bar workouts.
