Care for your skin & for our environment

Our story

Dermeco Oy was founded in 2019 by two industrial designers with the goal of creating the world’s first ecological hydrocolloid dressing. 

With continuous research and innovative product development we have been able to create a patent-pending hydrocolloid dressing that decomposes into carbon dioxide, water and humus and does not break down into harmful microplastics.

The technology can be used for skin adhesive plasters, patches, masks and wound dressings to improve or prevent any skin related medical or esthetical concerns such as wounds, blisters, cold sores, acne, corns, cracked skin, burns, pressure ulcers, eczema, scarring and stretch marks.

Our team consists of doctors, investors and other industry professionals with extensive experience in the field. Our partner network is backed by Business Finland, Terkko HealthHub, Starup Lions and Whitecoach Oy. Our company was nominated as a ‘Best HealthTech Starup’ finalist in Nordic Startup Awards.
