The adhesive in the QwikGuard face mask is a medical grade acrylic adhesive. The foam and adhesive we use are traditionally used on transcutaneous electrodes which adhere directly to the skin. The material and adhesive have passed biocompatibility testing and have been cleared through the 510(k) process by the FDA. These electrodes, which have multiple applications and are used by all types of patients, have been on the market for more than 15 years with very few reports of skin irritation related to the adhesive.
And if you don't speak scientist...it sticks really well, and shouldn't cause any irritation! If you're concerned about any skin irritants or reactions, please contact your primary care physician to make sure QwikGuard is right for you.
