How Do Patches Work On Skin?

                How do patches work on skin?


Patches work by convincing your skin to absorb active ingredients into your bloodstream. 


We use the term “topical” to describe our non-OTC patches rather than “transdermal”  to keep on the right side of the law.


How do we convince the skin to absorb active ingredients?


  • First, we use top quality materials, including an occlusive layer that encourages your pores to open and simultaneously keeps your active ingredients absorbing. Our medical-grade materials set us apart.
  • We also use excipients – proven ingredients that aid in absorption. Proprietary ingredients that help drive the active ingredients through the skin’s natural barrier are part of every patch we make.   We work in partnership with new excipient developers to find the best of the best.
  • We utilize the right ingredients – not everything will go through the dermis, due to molecular size and other factors. Working with experts pays off.  We want  your patch to work on skin!


If you have any additional questions about patches, or if you’re ready to investigate manufacturing your own line of patches, please give us a call or drop us a note – we’d love to be of assistance.
