What is Detachol?

Detachol is a non-irritating adhesive remover used to aid in the removal of dressings, tapes, and most sticky residue from the skin.

Detachol makes dressing removal safer:

  • Reduces risk of Medical Adhesive-Related Skin Injury (MARSI)³
  • Reduces patient pain and discomfort
  • Completely removes adhesive residue, which may harbor bacteria¹
  • Quickly and easily removes adhesive to save healthcare professional time
  • Non-irritating, alcohol/ acetone-free formulation does not irritate or dry the skin
  • Compatible with chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG)⁴

Instructions For Use

Safety, comfort and convenience come in three easy steps:

Crack: Place an individual vial blister pack on a hard surface with the label facing down. Gently apply pressure to the vial through the blister pack to crush the inner ampule to release Detachol.

Peel: Peel back the lid of the blister pack and remove the vial using aseptic technique.

Apply: By gently squeezing the vial, apply Detachol to the corner of the tape or dressing. Once the corner is saturated, carefully lift the tape or dressing. Continue squeezing the vial, while gently lifting the tape or dressing at the same time. Continue application until adhesive is completely removed. Clean the area with mild soap and water. Avoid contact with broken skin.
