What is Appeel?
Appeel is an advanced, no sting silicone based medical adhesive remover.
How does Appeel work?
When the silicone comes into contact with the device it temporarily changes the surface energy of the skin, disrupting the adhesive properties between skin and device. This facilitates gentle removal of the device or adhesive residue.
Why use Appeel?
Appeel makes adhesive removal quick and gentle. It dries quickly, leaving skin feeling clean and fresh, and ready for the next adhesive application.
Will Appeel sting my skin?
No it will not.
What sizes is Appeel available in?
Appeel is available in a 50ml aerosol can or a box of 30 easy to use wipes.
Is Appeel available on NHS prescription?
Yes it is.
Is Appeel nurse prescribable?
Yes it is.
Will I have to clean Appeel off after I have used it?
No, Appeel dries in seconds as the silicone it contains evaporates completely from the skin.
Will Appeel affect the adhesion of my next pouch, sheath or dressing?
No, it evaporates completely, leaving no residue.
