Abstract

A Bandage is a standard of biomaterial used on wound to protect from infections and also to cure the wound. An adhesive bandage, also called a sticking plaster (and also known by genericized trademarks Band-aid or Elastoplasts) is a small dressing used for injuries not serious enough to require a full-size bandage. The adhesive bandage protects the cut from friction, bacteria, damage and dirt. In this present study of 50%:50% Bamboo Cotton web was selected for the construction of bandage functional part. In functional part of web was finished with eco-friendly natural leaves of Galinsoga parviflora and Azadirachta indica. For the finished web the antibacterial assessment EN ISO 20645 and anti-allergy assessment of the finished fabric contact allergy test (in house method) was carried out. From the test, it was concluded as 50%:50% Bamboo cotton finished with Galinsoga parviflora and Azadirachta indica has excellent wound curing property when compared to 50%:50% Bamboo cotton finished with Galinsoga parviflora. This study used to prevent the skin allergy, protect from the Bacteria and also to cure the skin diseases
