    These are neoprene gloves.

    As for acetone as a carrier: do the onion test.

    Cut an onion in half. Place one of the leaking halves on the back of your hand. What do you taste? Nothing.

    Toss some acetone between the onion and your hand. You immediately taste onion IN YOUR MOUTH. That is how the carrier works.

    Be glad you tested with an onion, not resin.
