PATCH Bamboo Strip Bandages – 100% Compostable Adhesive Plasters
Multiple award-winning PATCH Bamboo Strip Bandages is getting major attention from the European market for its amazing hypoallergenic, zero waste packaging and compostable solution that aims to fix a major market problem!
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.
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 plasters. He became motivated to find better alternatives when he found that Charlie wasn’t alone with his reactions. His research found that a staggering number of the of the world’s population can’t wear common wound care coverings, which was predicted to be on rise.
The other side of James’ motivations were spurred on by his other son, Xavier, who hates putting creams on his skin. As parents you can get pretty creative with ways to put an anti-septic/anti-bacterial cream on the plaster, but no matter what was tried, Xavier would always know and often tantrums would follow.
Ultimately the wish for a wound care product that wouldn’t cause nasty skin reactions and serve as a way to help heal the wounds was the real reason for PATCH.
PATCH is an incredible natural alternative that won’t confine his sons to the couch when there is still exploring to be done or footy to be played!
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.
PATCH is an advanced new range of natural adhesive plasters designed to support wound recovery with 100% organic bamboo fibre and mineral based Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA). The range features four products, PATCH NATURAL, PATCH COCONUT OIL KIDS, PATCH ALOE VERA and PATCH ACTIVATED CHARCOAL, enriched with aloe vera, coconut oil, activated charcoal and pure bamboo gauze. All ingredients are historically proven to soothe symptoms and help assist the natural wound recovery from minor cuts, grazes, abrasions and bites.
PATCH strips are also 100% compostable and have been independently tested and fully compost into the soil in a matter of weeks. The product is made sustainably from bamboo and manufactured close to the source where the bamboo is grown to minimize environmental impact.
“What began as a need for my son, has now turned into a worldwide venture. PATCH has shaken up the global wound care market and It is fantastic to see such expansion” James Dutton, Founder.
