Hello lovely humans, Thank you for all of your wonderful comments and messages about taping! Sorry I haven't been completely informational about the subject, I didn't have the answers until now. I also wanted to learn how to tape safer so I contacted the company directly. Here is the wonderful response that I received from Lexi. "-We have seen irritation issues with applications being applied with too much tension. Be aware that adding too much stretch to the middle of the strip can pull and irritate the skin when you move. These reactions often appear as blisters, and can even produce open sores. In our application videos and instructions we advise an anchor point of 2 inches on each end of the strip and to lay these points down with zero tension. If tension is applied on these points irritations, blisters, or abrasions can occur as mentioned. We advise low to medium amounts when stretching the middle portion for best results . Large amounts of tension are not recommended. -To create a buffer between the skin and adhesive you can apply Phillips Milk of Magnesia to the skin prior to taping. Allow to dry, and apply the strips over the top. This can help reduce redness, and itchy irritations. -We don’t recommend using Pro Extreme, or Pro Synthetic KT Tape on this area. KT Tape Original, and Gentle KT Tape aren’t as aggressive on the skin. -Using fresh tape daily causes more room for irritation experiences. When the tape is removed, different layers of skin cells do come off with the tape. Instead of using soap or water for removal we recommend using an oil based product. I’ll list some common products that can be used here:
Baby oil gel
It is best to cover the strips in the oily solution for 5-10 minutes as the oil properties will help break down the adhesive. Do not rip off, and remove slowly. I’ll provide an attachment in case it helps to have a visual."
I have 25 packs to Give away and a bunch of stickers from my wonderful friends. 💜💜🌈 HAPPY TAPING 🌈💜
