How It Works
See it in action!
Made with a unique polymer that allows for secure adhesion to the skin when it is needed-
while a simple swipe with rubbing alcohol triggers the adhesive to release for pain-free removal.
Easy on Skin. Easy to Use.
EASY TO APPLY
Strong Acrylic Adhesion
Apply dressing, bandage, or tape to clean, dry skin free of oils or lotions. If necessary, clean the skin with rubbing alcohol and allow to dry, then apply the adhesive to the skin.
USE ALCOHOL PAD TO RELEASE
Painless Trauma-Free Removal
Use an alcohol prep pad (or rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball) to wipe and soak the boarder of the dressing or bandage (or entire surface of the tape) – about 3-10 seconds.
Adhesive switches “off” and you can remove the dressing, bandage or tape painlessly and trauma-free
LIFT, LOOK & RE-APPLY
No Messy Residue Left On Skin
To reapply or reposition, allow the rubbing alcohol to evaporate and reposition the dressing, bandage or tape on skin.
Perfect for anyone…especially those with sensitive skin, fragile skin or thin skin.
All of Comfort Release® adhesive products adhere with a strong acrylic bond but remove from the skin like a soft silicone adhesive product.
Our patented adhesive combines a natural plant-based polymer that acts as an adhesive “SWITCH”.
Wet the adhesive tape or dressing border with common rubbing alcohol (before removal) to TURN OFF the adhesive bond, and the product removes easily, painlessly and trauma-free.
Allow the rubbing alcohol to evaporate and the adhesive bond TURNS back ON.
No Pain, Plenty to Gain.

PLEASE NOTE: We don’t recommend wear of any type of bandage or tape for more than three days. Apply Comfort Release® bandages and tapes over clean, dry skin. If the bandage is wet with water, allow it to dry before applying alcohol. Rubbing alcohol should only be applied topically, and never used on an open wound or skin burn. Rubbing alcohol is an eye irritant, and is toxic if ingested.
WARNING: Seek professional help for medical emergencies. Consult a physician for deep or penetrating wounds. If irritation or redness develops or persists, discontinue use of Comfort Release® and consult a physician. People with prior skin reactions to acrylic adhesives, skin burns, or allergic reactions to rubbing alcohol should not use Comfort Release®.
