A Better Band-aid


Throw out your icky flesh-colored band-aids! The Leaf-band-aid is a functionally and aesthetically superior alternative that looks and works better than any band-aid before it!

It’s made of a special color-changing material which gradually changes as it senses and begins to react to the temperature of human skin. When it changes from bright green to yellow, it indicates to the wearer that it’s time to switch out.

The aesthetic of the leaf itself isn’t only representational of the color-changing material. The design was thoughtfully chosen for the leaf’s history as a remedial tool for healing cuts, scrapes and wounds.

Leaf-band-aid is a 2015 Red Dot Award Winner.
