INTRODUCING: Patch Bandages!
PATCH is crafted with 100% organic bamboo fiber. They are plastic-free, latex-free, hypoallergenic, and compostable/biodegradable!
PATCH was born when James Dutton, the founder of Nutricare, noticed that his son’s skin was reacting badly to the adhesive on conventional bandages while trying to protect his son Charlie’s adventure wounds. (In fact, it actually made his injury worse!) This puzzled James, and he set off on his mission to find out why. He was shocked to discover that there is an array of chemicals that lurk in the common bandage. He became motivated to find better alternatives when he found that his son wasn’t alone with his reactions. His research discovered a staggering number of the world’s population can’t wear common wound care coverings.
James’ other son, Xavier, disliked balms and creams being applied to his boo-boos. So, necessity being the mother of invention, James came up with the novel idea of including the ointment in the bandage in such a way that wouldn’t cause nasty skin reactions and serve to help heal the wounds.
Learning that an ever-growing number of the population react or are allergic to the current wound covering solutions only propelled the business to where it is today, taking it from just an idea into thousands of stores in Australia, and now growing globally since July 2016.
PATCH organic strips are the natural approach to wound care. They’re made with 100% certified organic bamboo fiber, one of the fastest-growing, renewable resources on the planet. Added extras include coconut oil, aloe vera, and activated charcoal. The ingredients are all made from natural elements with historically proven benefits that soothe symptoms and assist with wound recovery.
PATCH has been engineered to be the most sensitive and natural wound care alternative on the market, appealing to all skin types both young and old. These international award-winning hypoallergenic, breathable bandages are certified sustainably sourced, eco-friendly, biodegradable, cruelty-free, and made with organic ingredients. What’s not to love? (Also: Patch bandages can be removed easily, without tears.)
