Therapeutic Patches

PURE SOURCE has established itself as a world leader in the development and supply therapeutic patches.

Regardless of the specific target purpose, PURE SOURCE’s variety of transdermal patches has been accepted by the United States Food & Drug Administration, and revered by distributors and consumers alike.

PURE SOURCE has the ability to put virtually any topical therapy into topical transdermal patch that can be packaged to your exact specifications.

The most common of these patches is for topical pain relief where patches have been proven to have a great effect on muscle and joint pain, backache and minor arthritis pain. These patches offer relief for hours without the need to take pills or constantly apply creams to hard-to-reach places or at inconvenience times.

The big selling point for patches is that they deliver medication through the skin directly to the spot that hurts. The other advantage is that the drugs in patches don’t have to first travel through the digestive system as pills must. As a result, there’s little danger of the side effects that oral analgesics present: stomach upset or - worse - ulcers and digestive tract bleeding, obstruction or perforations. These risks escalate if you regularly take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen, naproxen and aspirin.

OTC patches are designed to work for 8 to 12 hours, depending on the active ingredient(s) and the strength. The relief you get from pills generally lasts 4 to 6 hours.

Patches can be manufactured with a variety of active ingredients and varying strengths as allowed in the FDA monographs for topical pain relief pharmaceuticals. They can be packed to your exact specifications, and can be made it a variety of sizes and shapes. We have worked extensively with our suppliers of materials and adhesives to assure that our patches will stick to the desired area, be comfortable to wear, and continue to deliver long-lasting relief.

Patches can also be made for a variety of purposes. Aside from Topical Pain Relief, patches have been proven to be very effective for the removal of Plantar Warts, and can even be cushioned for extra comfort. Patches can be used for a variety of skin ailments ranging from severe dryness to psoriasis and other forms of dermatitis. Even anti-aging properties like wrinkles and skin tightening can put into a transdermal patch with phenomenal results.

Whatever the issue – whatever the cause: PURE SOURCE is your source for therapeutic patches, and your customer’s source for long-lasting relief.
