About Kind Removal Silicone Tape

  • Skin-friendly
  • 1" x 5.5 yards / 2.5cm x 5 meters

Description (by Rebecca)

Many thanks to Neil who found this tape and brought it to my attention. This was the first silicone tape I ever used on my lids. It is distinctly more skin friendly than paper or plastic tapes - the adhesive is not nearly as harsh on the skin. Two pieces makes my lid feel quite secure. I've had good feedback from many users over the years on this one.

Description (from the manufacturer's literature)

Its comfortable application and removal along with secure adhesion makes it ideal for patients with sensitive, compromised or at-risk skin, and better for all patients whose treatment requires medical tape.

Research confirms that upon removal, 3M™ Kind Removal Silicone Tape causes minimal epidermal cell stripping and less pulling of hair.

The silicone adhesive on 3M silicone tape is softer and more conformable than traditional adhesives, and works differently with skin and hair. Unlike traditional tape that increases adhesion over time, 3M silicone tape delivers constant adhesive strength for as long as it's left in place.

Using 3+ Years

My eye protrudes forward and cannot shut on its own. Since using this tape I have little to no inflammation, irritation or redness in the morning since the eye is able to remain closed. Another benefit has been that I am more rested since light is no longer filtering in while I'm asleep. The tape removes gently and has rarely pulled an eyelash. It tears easily to whatever size is needed. I found the best way to tape my eye is one piece horizontal on the inside corner and one piece vertical on the outside corner use. After a little practice it's easy to tape on and off without a mirror. Small and compact the roll is easy to carry while traveling when I need a nap. I hope it works for you too! NOTE FROM REBECCA: So glad this is working for you. Really appreciate all the detail on your taping method - two pieces / two directions is a new one to me and great to know!

Gentle removal, repositional

I'd been using paper tape for sleeping for 4 weeks after my Ramsay Hunt diagnosis. My skin had become irritated and the adhesive was beginning to leave a residue. I was so happy to find the Dry Eye shop and ordered the 3M Kind Silicone tape. I found that I was able to reposition it as needed but more importantly, it was so gentle and easy to remove in the morning with no adhesive residue. I stuck some on the inside of my wrist to make sure I didn't have a silicone allergy before using it. Many thanks for your informative website and prompt shipping.

Gentle, yet effective

I've gone through extended periods of time where I tape my eyes at night. This is by far the best tape out there. The removal is easy and painless, but it does stay on.

tape will hold eyes closed

I have been using this kindness tape now for about 18 months maybe longer. I've tried a bevvy of things for the past six years now, ever since ointment alone no longer works.
