PATCH was first started when James Dutton (the founder of Nutricare) noticed that one of his children’s skin was in fact reacting badly to a common wound covering and making the wound worse!
After researching the ingredients in common plasters and dressings, he soon discovered the array of synthetic chemicals hidden inside which was meant to protect and heal the wounds but in fact could act as irritants. He became motivated to find better alternatives when he found that his children weren’t alone with these reactions. James 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.
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 and the fantastic products they have created.
PATCH is an incredible eco-friendly & natural alternative to synthetic chemical and plastic plasters! Their plasters are 100% biodegradable
