Topical Patch Technology

How They Work!

Technical data backed by research

Recent studies have shown that less than 33% of the active ingredients in many pills are actually delivered in the bloodstream to the affected area. Additionally, an astonishing up to 95% of the weight of each capsule or pill is its binders and fillers. Much of the medicinal benefit either never reaches its intended destination or leaves the body entirely. PATCH4ALL’s extensive research and discussions with several large global pharmaceutical companies confirm all of this and these companies are actively working on alternate delivery vehicles to get these ingredients absorbed into the bloodstream. 

PATCH4ALL’s topical patches achieve the goal of better nutrient absorption and are the preferred delivery vehicle for vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids and antioxidants.

The science of the patch and the underlying technology is complex, but the application and absorption are relatively simple. A supplement is applied in a relatively high dosage to the inside of a patch which is worn on the skin for an extended period of time. Through a diffusion process, the supplements enter the bloodstream directly through the skin thus avoiding the toxic acids in the stomach that neutralize many of the ingredients.  Since there is a high concentration on the patch and low concentration in the blood, the supplements will continue diffusing into the blood for a long period of time. Some even contain dermal or skin enhancers to help the supplements through the skin.

So how does a patch actually work?

The patch delivers the intended ingredients into the circulatory system by absorption through the skin. A patch uses a special membrane to control the rate at which the nutrients contained within it pass through the skin and into the bloodstream. For nutrients to be absorbed via the skin into the bloodstream, the drug molecules pass through the top 2 skin layers, the epidermis and dermis, into the capillaries or small blood vessels. By direct delivery to the bloodstream, without first going to the liver, a greater amount of nutrients become more bioavailable.
