PATCH, the world’s first natural, hypoallergenic and 100% compostable wound care solution!
Internationally award-winning PATCH Bamboo Plasters are changing the way consumers treat their wounds while caring for the environment. Across the globe PATCH is being embraced by the masses with its innovative design, health and environmental benefits – offering a wound care solution that ticks all the boxes.
In just over 19 months, Australian product, PATCH, has expanded to 35 countries throughout Europe, the US and parts of Asia. It is the world’s first natural, organic bamboo plaster that is 100% compostable whilst being the most sustainable commercial wound covering available. PATCH is the new solution to safely treat minor wounds naturally and is hypoallergenic for those with ultra-sensitive skin.
When father-of-two and PATCH founder, James Dutton discovered his son, Charlie, had an adverse reaction to a common plaster, he quickly realised that there was a gap in the market and his son was not alone. According to research, 1 in 4 people surveyed cannot wear normal plasters due to reactions and allergies.1
“What began as a need for my young son, has now expanded to a worldwide venture. PATCH is made from the most premium and sustainable ingredients to provide a hypoallergenic, compostable and biodegradable solution to wound care, with the extra natural goodness of activated charcoal, aloe vera and coconut oil embedded in the gauze,” said James Dutton, PATCH Chief Executive Officer.
All PATCH plasters are made from 100% bamboo fibre, are compostable and completely plastic-free, including the packaging. PATCH have been documented in a video to break down 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. Mr Dutton said, “The whole PATCH product, including all packaging, is compostable and biodegradable, having a minimal environmental impact”.
In April 2019, PATCH was awarded the Best New Eco Living Product at the Natural & Organic Awards Europe 2019 and this month PATCH was announced as the Plastic Free Award Winner at The Green Parent Natural Beauty Awards 2019. On the achievement, James Dutton says, Our mission is to be the leading sustainable wound care solution product on the market. To be recognised globally alongside other plastic-free products that support the same message is a big accomplishment for PATCH. We are excited for the journey to come.”
In the UK, PATCH can be purchased online at patchstrips.eu and from Holland & Barrett stores. PATCH will also be tentatively available at Superdrug from the 2nd week of July 2019.
