Skin and Wound Care

  • Science and innovation are cornerstones of 3M, but they only matter if we can use what we know to make patients' lives better. We understand adhesive technology and skin health and work to provide innovative products, from medical tapes and adhesive skin closures to barrier creams and dressings, that will make your job easier and help lead to better patient outcomes.  


  • Wound Care Dressings
