How Hydrocolloid Pimple Patches Work?

Pimple Patch is made of hydrocolloid but what is hydrocolloid exactly and how How Hydrocolloid Pimple Patches Work? First, here’s a little history: 

How Hydrocolloid Acne Patches Work:

long ago during the Egyptian times, people use grease-soaked gauze. However, that time medical technological advances brought healing products.

This moist environment was important because if you used dry gauze on a wound, the wound would dry out and the gauze would stick to the wound when removed sometimes causing more damage.

Hydrocolloid was created in the 1980’s to create a moist environment by allowing gelling agents (sometimes pectin or gelatin – Pimple Patch is not made with gelatin and therefore is vegan-friendly)

to draw out the the pus and fluid inside the wounds and suspend them on the bandage. 

This concept of moist wound healing started to hit a revolution in the late 1980s and early 1990s with a ton of products and scientific/clinical research.

Amongst the medical community, it’s widely accepted that moist wound healing is much better than dry dressings.

Globally, Japan started widely using hydrocolloid dressings to care for the spike in bedsores as their population started ageing.

Their Ministry of Health, Labor & Welfare instituted penalties to hospitals that did not address these issues related to bedsores

and coupled with insurance coverage of modern or moist environment wound dressings, the usage of hydrocolloid started to be more widespread.

Transition to Pimple Patch

About 10-15 years ago, someone realized that this concept of a moist healing environment would work well for pimple as well.

Pimples are a kind of “wound” on the skin and can often contain fluid, pus and other gunk from pimples. 

Pimple patches and hydrocolloid became popularized in Korea and Asia about 10 years ago, and it’s about time the US and other global markets were in on this little secret!

The team Sajdahan Skin Care is on a mission to educate and promote the use of hydrocolloid acne patches to the general public for more people can take,

is hydrocolloid really effective?

Hydrocolloid is made of gel forming agents like pectin or gelatin that create a moist environment with the body to promote healing.

It pull out the fluids and pus from pimple. If you used Pimple Patch before, you can see the white stuff that gets sucked out! Gross!

There was one study on the effectiveness of hydrocolloid pimple patches which showed that in the double-blind, randomized study,

the group that used hydrocolloid acne patches saw a statistically significant greater reduction in the overall severity of pimple.

Also using hydrocolloid pimple patches resulted significantly improvement in the redness, oiliness, dark pigmentation, and sebum level within 3/5/7 days.
