PATCH Activated Charcoal Strips: the natural wound care alternative. Patch Activated Charcoal strips have an activated bamboo charcoal gauze that helps draw out impurities, reduce redness and repair minor abrasions.Patch adhesive strips are latex free making them suitable for the most sensitive skin types. They are the perfect alternative to a plastic adhesive strip. The strips are made from hypoallergenic pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA), certified organic bamboo fibre and organic bamboo gauze. Activated Charcoal Strips are a jet black coloured adhesive strip, great for tough Tradies that don’t like a dark coloured, durable bandaid. They could also replace the standard blue adhesive cooks wear. Say goodbye to red marks left behind from your plasters and hello to an environmentally friendly, natural wound care product.

Are Patch Strips Plastic Free?

Yes, the adhesive strip that is placed on your skin is 100% plastic free.

PATCH Adhesive Strips are made from 100% certified bamboo fibre which is compostable. The gauze, which is the inside layer of the strip (that sits over your wound) is also compostable.

The Activated Charcoal gauze is made from activated charcoal powder, a biodegradable cellulose layer (to keeping the charcoal in place) and 100% organic bamboo fibre.

Aside from the environmental aspect, the magic of PATCH Strips comes from the ingredients used to create it’s adhesiveness. While most bandages are made from latex, which may cause allergies, PATCH Strips adhesive has been developed using natural ingredients that are suitable for even the most sensitive skin types. The strip is 100% biodegradable and compostable.

The colouring on the PATCH Strips is also natural, and safe for composts.

What materials are the Patch Strips Packaged in?

The PATCH Strips come packaged in a cardboard box made from recycled materials. This box is both recyclable and compostable.

The PATCH Strip is wrapped in a biodegradable plastic outer layer. This layer has been added to keep the bandage sterile. The plastic outer layer is not certified compostable.

[November 2018] PATCH Strips have been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to replace their current plastic outer wrapper with paper, which will result in PATCH being a fully compostable product.

Please note: An item is considered biodegradable it can be broken down by natural elements such as fungi or bacteria. The period of time in which it breaks down can be months or years depending on the item and the conditions it is exposed to. For example if we look at a standard size leaf that’s fallen from a tree it may take weeks or months for the leaf to biodegrade. However if when you compare an average leaf to that of an oak leaf, a hardy, durable natural item, it will take longer to biodegrade. It’s estimated it will take up to four years for an oak leaf to fully decompose. 

In order for plastic to be considered compostable, 90 per cent of it must biodegrade within 180 days of being in compost. The plastic needs to be made up of at least 50 per cent organic material and it cannot leave behind toxic residue after it has broken down.




Perfect for burns, blisters, grazes and scrapes.
