PATCH is a company founded in Australia, and is brand new to NZ. PATCH is a hugely popular natural, biodegradable brand of bamboo-based adhesive wound care strips! Plastic-free and wonderful!
PATCH was born when James Dutton, the founder of Nutricare (the parent brand), 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 is also cruelty-free and biodegradable! Learning that an ever-growing number of the population react or are allergic to the current wound covering solutions only propelled PATCH to its enormous popularity today.
