PATCH was born when James Dutton, the founder of Nutricare, noticed that while patching up his son's badges of adventure that his boy's skin reacted badly to common adhesive plasters. Not every dad and mum knows that there's a huge number of chemicals in the adhesives of our bathroom cupboard go-to's. With an ever-growing number of the population allergic to the current solutions. James found himself weighing up whether to let the wound be free or use a makeshift patch; most famously a tissue and elastic band wrapped around a big toe. He wished for a wound care solution that would both enable healing and not confine his son to the couch when there was still exploring to be done or footy to be played!
