About Adhesive Removal

An ideal adhesive is one that should allow to be removed without causing trauma to the wound and/or (surrounding) skin. Ideal adhesives are however impossible to make. First of all there is a wide biological variation in the levels of adhesion of the same product to normal skin of different people. In addition, there are factors that influence the level of adhesion to normal skin, like:

  • Sebum levels
  • Dryness
  • Sweating
  • Hair
  • The presence of residues of creams / ointments

Furthermore the strength of adhesion depends on many factors including the pressure used to attach. Dressings also have to take care of two different surfaces: the skin and the wound bed. Last but not least, different wounds require different wear time.

Commercial adhesives on the market today are great at staying attached to the skin, but often can do damage—such as skin tissue tearing—once it’s time to remove them. Removal of adhesives hurts and can result in stripping away the epidermal layer of the skin in both the wound and periwound areas!
