What’s The Deal With Topical Wellness Patches?

Topical patches seem to be popping up everywhere lately - from supermarket shelves to celebrity wrists -  And there’s a good reason for it. Discreet, hassle-free and easy to use, topical patches are a great alternative to ingesting supplement powders or pills. Chances are, you’ve seen these super-charged stickers on someone you know. You may already count yourself among the patch-savvy or perhaps you’re merely patch-curious? Either way, there’s always more to learn. 

And with the recent spike in interest for our Topical Patches, now seemed like the perfect time to answer some common questions and provide you with information about this powerful wellness tool. So let’s get started… 

What exactly is a topical wellness patch and how does it work? 

Topical patches are small, stick-on pieces of material that deliver nutrients and vitamins through your skin. They are designed to allow a slow-release of ingredients directly into your system, gently and over a number of hours. 

Topical and transdermal patches have been used by the pharmaceutical industry for quite a while. First introduced in 1979, patches were quickly recognized as a safe and reliable delivery method for medicines. More recently, this technology has become available to the makers of natural remedies and supplements. 

At Laki, each of our patches are targeted to specific concerns or desired results. Whether you need to sleep, de-stress, re-energize, renew your immune system or reignite your passion, we've got a patch to suit your situation. 

Using a tried-and-tested transdermal delivery system backed by science, the slow release of ingredients ensures that you’ll be receiving the benefits all day (or night), for up to eight hours with the option to remove it at any time. 

What are the benefits of using a topical patch? 

  • Patches can offer benefits over oral supplements, as there is no nausea that often comes from swallowing pills or capsules. This can be especially important if you’re experiencing tummy upset from illness or a big night out.  
  • Nutrients absorbed topically through the skin avoid the first pass effect of digestion - bypassing the stomach and liver provides maximum bioavailability to your system. 
  • Our patches remain effective for up to 8-12 hours providing a constant rate of release of nutrients and helping to avoid the peaks and troughs of oral supplementation. 
  • You can take them anywhere! Light, easy to pack and so easy to use - our patches will be your best travel companion ever. Plus there’s zero risk of leakages or spills which can make them a handy accompaniment when flying.
