Old camera grip rubber break down

I have 2 very old Canon EOS A2's and the rubber is sticky on the grip. I wonder what is in the rubber that makes it break down. It even looks new and shinny. I hope that modern cameras have better rubber. The oldest camera that I just sold was a Canon 1D 2 and the rubber was still ok.
