Tape adhesive irritates and annoys the majority of individuals. Those with sensitive skin, on the other hand, may develop allergies and unpleasant rashes when their skin comes into touch with medical glue. If you're one of these folks, the finest medical tape for sensitive skin will help you prevent uncomfortable rashes. 

Aside from allergies, persons with sensitive skin are more likely to get skin injuries as a result of medical adhesives (MARSIs). The removal of the glue from the skin produces tearing, ripping, or separating of the epidermal layers of the skin, resulting in these injuries.

Several injuries can arise depending on the adhesive's strength and the skin's sensitivity. When you remove the sticky glue without breaking the skin, you get rosacea (redness). When the tape's cling is greater than the skin layers' bonds, stripping occurs, and the top layer of the dermis is removed along with the glue. Tears can develop in the worst-case scenario if the glue is removed too soon, causing the skin layers to split.

While the majority of our products are skin-friendly, certain types of sensitive skin require different treatments. If you're worried about a product upsetting your skin, we recommend doing a patch test. Apply a little quantity of adhesive/tape to a sensitive skin region (inner arm, behind the ear, or the scalp if possible) Cover the glue with a band-aid and send your consumer home for the evening. Instruct them to check for a response the next day after removing the band-aid. Do not use that product on that specific customer if there is any irritation or discomfort. Check to see whether the bond hasn't come loose from the skin. Although rare, certain items will not bind to some persons due to differences in body chemistry.

We want you to enjoy yourself while wearing your hair system. To assist you, we've compiled a list of our top sensitive skin products so you can discover which ones could be right for you!

Solvents 

99% Alcohol

This lotion is excellent for minor cleansing and skin preparation prior to bonding.
