10 Things You Should Know About Patches
Fences are pretty great for keeping people out of your yard. And keeping dogs in your yard. One thing they’re not so great for? Sitting on. So if you’re still on the fence about OnMi, it’s time to get off — and get sticking.
Why? We’re so glad you asked. Here are 10 things you should know about patches — and why you should definitely, absolutely, and unequivocally get off that fence and give them a go.
What in the world is a transdermal patch?
A transdermal patch is a medicinal patch that attaches to your skin. Your skin absorbs the ingredients over time, giving you long-lasting and effective relief. Think of it as a constant hug of goodness.
Give it to me straight, does this actually work?
Yep. They are a safe and effective way to deliver the vitamins and nutrients your body needs. For more information on how vitamin patches work, give this a read.
I'm still not sure... How does it actually work?
It all starts with the largest organ in the body: your skin. This organ serves many different functions, but one aspect of the skin really sticks out to us: it’s porous, meaning it can absorb things through its surface.
Our patches are designed to perfectly pair with your porous skin. They feature four layers that work together to house vitamins and other nutrients that can be absorbed directly through your perfectly porous skin. The first layer is the clear liner. This is the sticky part that allows the vitamins to penetrate the skin while adhering to your body for up to 12 hours. The next layer is the ingredient reservoir, which contains vitamins and other ingredients. The third layer was designed to help control the release of ingredients from the reservoir with 12-hour extended-release technology. The final layer is a clear, protective backing that protects the patch and prevents evaporation.
What about my OOTD?
If you’re worried about our patches souring your fresh fits, have no fear. The four layers of the patches are clear, resulting in a subtle square you can stick anywhere. And if sleeves are your thing, the patches are very thin and can fit under any piece of clothing. In short, OnMi patches are a perfect pairing with any ensemble.
But what about the vitamins I'm already taking?
Vitamin pills have been known to contain all sorts of nasties — artificial colors, harmful additives, unnecessary fillers, and the like. If you want to skip all of that dirty business, patches are a clean, safe, and effective alternative to taking those pills.
You say these patches are all-natural. Is that legit?
The proof is in the pudding. Don't believe us? Just check out the ingredients we use. Our patches only contain safe, naturally derived ingredients with proven health benefits. You can find more information about each ingredient on our product pages.
Who can wear these patches?
Patches for mi, patches for you, our patches are made for the whole crew. Seriously, our patches are proven to be a safe alternative to pills for almost anyone. But we're not your doctor, so talk to yours if you have any questions before starting.
I have a cute pillbox from Etsy. Why should I give up my pills for patches?
We’ll see your gigantic-pill-induced gagging and raise you a pleasant patch application. Stick with our patches and you’ll see the difference.
Pills contain artificial colors, unnecessary fillers, and possibly some added sugars. Our patches don’t. Pills can irritate the stomach or be hard to swallow. Our patches won’t.
On top of that, our hypoallergenic, latex-free, and paraben-free formulation won’t irritate your skin, so we’ll take stick over swallow any day.
Are patches worth the price?
Let’s break it down. Your daily Starbucks run costs around $4 a day. For 30 days, that’s $120 a month (for likely your second cup of coffee, not that we’re counting.) OnMi provides all-day energy — no coffee needed. That’s $29.99 for 32 days of energy. We’ll let you figure out the rest.
The better question might be, “Why not OnMi?” But in all seriousness, we’re committed to being fully transparent at all times — not only will we always tell you what’s in our products, but we’ll tell you why we put it there. What’s more, our patches are always hypoallergenic, latex-free, paraben-free, and contain naturally derived ingredients. In a nutshell, it’s everything you need, and nothing you don’t.
Now that you know a little bit more about our patches, how does it feel to be off the fence? Feels pretty good, right? On the off chance that you still have questions, we’re here for you. Visit our FAQ page or contact us for more information.
