How It Works

No Pain, Plenty to Gain.

Current products for fragile or compromised skin sacrifice adhesive strength for easier removal. Comfort Release® delivers the strength of an acrylic adhesive with the easy release of silicone – with no residual glue or mess. The difference is in our patented oligomeric switch (OGS) technology.

Easy on Skin. Easy to Use.

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.

STEP 1.

Apply alcohol by soaking a cotton ball with a 70% solution of common rubbing alcohol, or use the alcohol prep pads.

STEP 2.

Wipe the entire outside of the bandage or tape until it begins to lift easily from the skin (about 3-10 seconds).

STEP 3.

Lift the bandage, tape, or dressing from the skin.

STEP 4.

To reapply or reposition, simply allow the alcohol to evaporate and replace bandage or tape on skin.

Perfect for anyone…especially those with sensitive skin, fragile skin or thin skin.

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®.
