Wound Dressing Safety

After dressing  a wound, a cut, stitches after a surgery or a burnt area, we normally cover it with a bandage and secure it with a tape (just in case you don’t have a Band Aid available). But how many times have you experienced adjusting it several times or feeling the need to change the gauze once again just because the tape got loose after getting it wet while taking a shower or sometimes even after moving a bit? We’re guessing, a lot. The cohesive bandage tape is your perfect solution for that!

Without needing tapes, it will secure the dressing and gauze you have put on the wound site so you never have to dress and cover it once again. Most of all, it will also provide additional protection for your wound so it won’t get infected as you wait for it to heal. But don’t forget to use gauze sponges and antibacterial ointments before you wrap your wound with our Self-Adherent Wrap!

Athletic Protection

When working out and while doing sports activities, it’s almost always expected to get injured or experience some muscle and joint pain at the very least. Hence, most athletes and gym-rats nowadays use these amazing self-adhering wraps so that even if they feel pain in their bodies, they could still do what they love!

Our cohesive bandages protect and tightly secure your muscles and joints without sticking to your hair-- so moving ever so briskly won’t ever be a problem even if you have a body part covered in bandage.

Injury Immobilization

Speaking of injuries, everyone who has experienced getting sprains, strained muscles, dislocated bones, splints, and the like knows that it’s just too challenging to move and do your normal day-to-day activities. In addition, if you need to immobilize your injury and you only use the regular cloth bandage with a clip, it’ll be harder to move-- or worse, your recovery will take a lot longer.

So if you want to tightly secure and immobilize your injuries without having the additional hassle of re-adjusting or replacing your bandage, then go with the kind of bandage wrap that sticks to itself and won’t move even if you do.

Inflammation Prevention

The R-I-C-E first aid treatment for injuries is the basic and primary solution for common injuries like bruises and sprains. And if you must know, R is for rest, I is for ice, C is for compression, and E is for elevation. The C or Compression part of the method is important because it will prevent postoperative swelling, edema, and inflammation.

Now elastic cohesive bandages are the perfect first-aid accessory for compression. It does just a great job in swelling down the injury or affected area. The only thing you should remember is that compression shouldn’t be too loose nor too tight. You also have to know the limit on how long you should compress the area. When done poorly or wrongly, the affected body part won’t be able to get the amount of blood flow it needs to quickly recover.

Pet care

Every pet lover knows how frustrating or devastating it is when our dogs or cats get injured, wounded, or worse have gone through an operation. Because apart from it being emotionally draining for both us and our furry pals, it is tad bit more challenging to take care of them whenever a part of their body is hurt. Simply, if we do not dress their wound or wrap their injury properly, tendency is, they’ll lick or bite it-- causing it to recover more slowly or get complications.

It’s just impossible to use the common Band Aid, gauze with tape, or cloth bandage with clips on them, right? After just a few minutes you’ll see it removed. Thus, using our Self-Adherent Elastic Tape on them is your best bet! They’ll stay put no matter what!


After knowing all the applications of the California Home Goods Self-Adherent Bandage Wraps, there’s only one advice we could give you. The best thing you could do for now is-- don’t wait for an emergency or injury before you go and buy medical supplies or even have a first aid kit in your home.
