Entry Motivation: 

PATCH is the world’s first hypoallergenic and biodegradable wound care solution that loves your skin. Crafted from 100% organic bamboo fibre and infused with the natural goodness of activated charcoal, aloe vera and coconut oil, PATCH bandages offer an environmentally friendly alternative to the common adhesive plaster which is perfect for the most sensitive of skin types.

From the bandages to the tube packaging, PATCH is compostable, and breaks down in garden soil within weeks. Our ground-breaking product is addressing the global crisis of single-use plastic one PATCH at a time, and we’ve worked at reducing the world’s plastic and chemical wastage by ensuring that PATCH fuels no part of it.

We are proud of PATCH and what it stands for, and have taken great care ensuring all PATCH components are environmentally friendly:
- The tube is made from recycled cardboard.
- The outer cover of the bandages is supplied as biodegradable plastic.
- The rice paper backing will break down. The bandage is made from 100% certified bamboo fibre and the mineral based PSA adhesive will all break down and compost.
- The colouring on all items is natural.

We chose bamboo not only for its natural antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial characteristics, but also because of its renewable and sustainable resourcefulness. When harvested, the plant does not die out afterwards (as with trees), which means no deforestation. It also uses less water, produces more oxygen and doesn’t need pesticides or herbicides.

Although the size of a plaster is small, the volumes produced globally are enormous. Thus, a small piece of plastic fabric manufactured at a huge scale will have a detrimental impact on our oceans, environment and the life that lives within them.

There is no other wound care product on the market like PATCH; enriched with natural ingredients that promotes wound healing, whilst being responsibly compostable. The functionality and practicality set us apart from the rest, and for the consumer PATCH doesn’t cost the earth.

PATCH is the first natural bamboo wound covering that is CE certified and TGA, FDA and ISO approved. It is also hypoallergenic, which addresses the one in five people who have adverse reactions to the latex and chemicals found in common plasters. Our studies obtained from Harvard, numerous medical boards and global market researchers showed no alternative for the 20% of the population who suffer from allergies. That is, until now!

People now are looking for products that they can trust to relieve ailments and aid a healthier, more vital life. The world is becoming more environmentally conscious and is looking for zero-waste, plastic-free, and natural alternatives that help preserve the planet.

PATCH provides an innovative solution to the growing number of people who are allergic to the common plaster and is helping rid the world of unnecessary plastic waste for the future of our children and the generations to come.

Now scratches, bruises and cuts become little badges of honour. Because SCRATCHES ARE NATURAL, AND SO ARE PATCHES.
