PATCH Activated Charcoal is perfect for the sports enthusiasts and the thrill seekers.
Make a statement with our black PATCH and take on any adventure that comes your way!
We take pride in using natural, organic, biodegradable and sustainable resources that are historically proven to soothe symptoms, whilst promoting wound recovery for even the most sensitive skin types.
Our activated charcoal range is made from 100% natural bamboo fibre, enriched with activated charcoal in the gauze to aid and help draw out impurities and infections from minor wounds. Free from irritating chemicals, allowing for suitable protection and soft support for all sensitive skin types.
PATCH wound care strips are hypoallergenic and perfect for those with sensitive skin.
Made with soft, organic bamboo fabric and gauze with hypoallergenic Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) and activated bamboo charcoal to assist the natural healing process. Our PSA formulation is made from a combination of natural minerals and Nano technology (think tiny suction cups) to gently adhere to the skin without causing reactions. They are low-irritating and suitable for those with sensitive skin.
PATCH easily contours the skin for maximum comfort and protection. Activated Bamboo charcoal is highly absorbent and works like a magnet to the impurities in the wound. This then assists with the body's natural healing of the wound. Once the impurities are drawn out, inflammation and redness is reduced, minimising the risk of infection, which promotes safer healing of the wound.
Bamboo is a soft and breathable option for wound coverings that is naturally antimicrobial and the most sustainable option in skin care you can choose.
Because scratches are natural. Patches are natural
And so it is, we see scratches, bruises and cuts as little badges of honour. Signs of a life lived to the fullest. A tree climbed, a dance floor owned at 3am, a game lost, a day never forgotten.
Compostable. Hypoallergenic. Breathable. Natural
About the Company
PATCH was born when James Dutton 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 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.
GOOD FOR YOU. GOOD FOR THE PLANET.
We believe that reducing our environmental footprint is the pathway forwards and we strive to make ours as light as possible. This is why we've chosen to work with bamboo on this unique product line.
Here's why we're excited about bamboo: It's the latest 'it' girl on the el natural scene: 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!
We take pride in using organic certified components - so you know it's only the good stuff!
