Patch Organic Strips

IMAGE COURTESY OF: Patch

PATCH was born when James Dutton (the founder of Nutricare) noticed that while trying to protect his son’s adventure wounds his skin was in fact reacting badly to a common wound covering and making the wound worse. Dutton’s wish for a wound care product that wouldn’t cause nasty skin reactions and also serve as a way to help heal the wounds was the real reason for PATCH.

PATCH organic strips are a natural approach to wound care and sustainable substitute to regular band-aid strips. Crafted with 100% organic bamboo fiber with the added natural goodness of activated charcoal, aloe vera and coconut oil, they are free from plastic, silicon, latex, parabens, and any additional chemicals. They are also biodegradable, compostable, and cruelty free.

They are suitable for those with the most sensitive skin. Made with a gentle pressure-sensitive adhesive, they are hypoallergenic and safe to use on children and adults alike.

They come in a kids version with a pattern of little pandas, and are enriched with coconut oil to help avoid red marks or nasty reactions on the skin; a black strip version that includes activated charcoal to help wound healing, especially for bites, splinters and grazes; a plain version; and a tan version, enriched with Aloe vera to help speed wound healing.

DID YOU KNOW
Most band-aids are made from plastic, either PVC, polyethylene, or polyurethane. These single-use plastic items don’t break down and biodegrade.
