Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 3M Kind Removal Silicone Tape
investigational medical Silicone tape, 1" x 1.5" sample, applied on time, worn for 24 hours.
Device: Skin Trauma
Each participant completed received both treatment arms, the 3M Micropore and 3M Kind Removal Silicone Tape.
Other Names:
  • 3M Micropore
  • 3M Kind Removal Silicone Tape - Investigational tape
3M Micropore Medical Tape
Commercially available Medical Paper Tape, 1" x 1.5" sample, applied on time, worn for 24 hours. Study Control.
Device: Skin Trauma
Each participant completed received both treatment arms, the 3M Micropore and 3M Kind Removal Silicone Tape.
Other Names:
  • 3M Micropore
  • 3M Kind Removal Silicone Tape - Investigational tape

Detailed Description:

The objective of this study is to determine the relative gentleness of a new investigational tape compared to 3M Micropore tape, a gold standard tape recognized for its gentleness and used as a mainstay in cosmetic surgery and neonatal care. A three-prong multidimensional evaluation consisting of laboratory assessments, expert skin grader and subject discomfort assessment will be used.
