This month’s spotlight is mineral patches. You can put minerals into a topical patch, but they don’t go through the dermis. This is very confusing for our customers, because we know that some minerals can be absorbed after diluting them with water. Yes, you’re getting magnesium from your Epsom salts bath. No, an electrolyte patch wouldn’t be an effective product to manufacture. The minerals involved don’t absorb when they’re mixed with emollient (pad-patch style) or adhesive (monolithic patch style).
Since we here at American Custom Technologies will only work with ingredients we believe to be safe and effective, we won’t put minerals in your patch.
