The history of hydrocolloid

The use of hydrocolloid in acne care is relatively new,1,4 but this medical-grade adhesive has been trusted for over 50 years in caring for minor burns, skin ulcers, bed sores and other wounds.1,2,3

Hydrocolloid works by absorbing pus and fluid from open wounds, mixing with the material to form a soft gel.1,2 This gel helps shield the skin and helps create a healing environment.1,2

Now, award-winning Mighty Patch™ hydrocolloid patches give your patients these same benefits.3
