When founder James Dutton noticed that his young son Charlie was having a reaction to conventional wound care products, he was motivated to find an alternative solution - only there wasn't one. What emerged was an enormous number of people who had the same problem. 25% of the world's population is affected overall. After months of research and discovering just how many chemicals are in conventional wound care, Nutricare and its award-winning flagship brand "PATCH" was born - a 100% natural bamboo fiber wound bandage with the added goodness of activated charcoal, aloe vera and coconut oil.
PATCH mission is to change the existing healthcare market that relies on chemicals and stagnant processes. PATCH sees technology and innovation as key to its mission.
James Dutton believes that every household needs to become cleaner.
