There’s a new dressing in town to patch up your kid’s cuts and scratches and there’s not an iota of plastic in sight. PATCH make a range of plasters with 100% organic bamboo fibre, plus the added healing benefits of activated charcoal, aloe vera and coconut oil to soothe symptoms.
PATCH‘s hypoallergenic adhesive strips, perfect for kids and adults alike, are free of plastic, parabens, latex and silicon. Bamboo is a rapidly renewable resource that grows many times faster than trees, uses much less water, produces up to 35 more oxygen and doesn’t need pesticides or herbicides!
The Australian brand was set up by James Dutton, who 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. PATCH believe that reducing their environmental footprint is the pathway forwards and they strive to make theirs as small as possible.
PATCH James Dutton said: “We have worked so hard to provide the world a natural alternative, with minimal packaging footprint. Ultimately it was our goal to make our product safe for sensitive skin, and the environment. Our strips can break down into soil in a matter of weeks!”
