Believe it or not, there are many uses for this crazy gorilla tape. It can be used on your skin, as well as other materials.
It’s perfect for putting together outfit lists when you don’t have much time to put together something nice. Or if you were looking forward to going out to eat, but now you’re stuck eating at home, this might help!
It also works great for all of those emergency situations where you need to get four things done before lunch is over. (don’t forget about people who still think that breakfast is the most important meal of the day!)
Put some gorillas in their daily routines and see what happens! I bet they feel more motivated and accomplished coming up with another way to do each task.
Gorillas love food. Food loves gorillas. A small shift makes them happy, so maybe try getting rid of snacks altogether and enjoying the experience of cooking from scratch.
Maybe choose fresh ingredients every week and make meals outside of the box. Brunch is wonderful-try making pancakes instead of croissants. And dinner? Try packing backpacking foods like sandwiches and drinks.
Have fun and feel reconnected with your inner kid by trying new hobbies and activities. Everything you ever wanted to know about being a child again, ask someone else.
The makers of gorilla tape claim that your mouth is the world’s largest gland, and they may be right! In fact, one study found that our mouths are twice as sensitive than our noses. This means that you can actually smell things better after doing some exercises with your tongue.
Practicing tong-tong breathing will help to increase the sensitivity of your nose. When you breathe in through your nostrils, make an effort to fill up not only your nasal cavity but also your abdominal area. Then once you have filled your lungs, switch to your throat by pushing out air from your lips gently.
This way you’re getting a full body breath which lowers the risk of lung congestion. Tong-tong breathing isn’t about sucking in or blowing out air; it’s about pulling air into and holding it inside before expelling it.
Some people worry that practicing tong-tong breathing might hurt their ears. However, studies show that listening closely increases blood flow to the inner ear. So even if there is no improvement in hearing ability, increased blood flow to the inner ear could still improve it.
Only for serious problems
This brand of self-adhesive bandage has dozens of uses, but probably the most common is as a burn dressing. When you’re injured or your skin breaks out, use auto-closure to apply compression to the wound.
Keeping wounds clean and dry is also important when treating burns. As such, this technique may be used during surgery to minimize blood loss and infection. Also, depending on the size of the burn, there will be fluid that pools inside the wound site.
By using this treatment early in the course of burn injury, much easier it is to manage this fluid and control any infections which might arise. A topically applied antibiotic can reduce the burden of infectious agents originating from endogenous sources.
There are many different names for brands of self adhesives that you can use to stick things together. Once connected, they’re usually difficult to remove without damaging something.
This includes gorilla tape, duct tape, sealant plastic wrap, vinyl sheathing, wood pellet wrapping, etc.. The common theme is that they’re all designed to make fast fixes or good connections between surfaces that won’t break down or require constant maintenance.
They’ve found their way into industry applications like fixing cables in conduit, repairing walls and floors when drywall needs to come down, and manufacturing processes where parts need to be joined quickly with little attention paid to drilling and tapping holes or installing fittings.
But these surfakcers don’t belong on your skin. Even though we talk about putting them on our hands so we can bond with other humans, it just doesn’t work. Surfaces will either stay stuck or fall off, which becomes uncomfortable if you have an arm or hand covered in sticky stuff trying to get out.
The best use I’ve found for this kind of thing is as a quick fix for when glass drops hard places fail to stop it. Buy a bag of hot glue sticks, open one, set the broken part, and close the lid. In doing my research, I also came across someone who put those things in her lip clefts back at school. Just remember to
Try another brand
There are many different brands of gorilla tape, both online and in stores. Before you pick up some tape to use it on skin, try buying a few samples or investing in a pack that you can sample yourself.
There is little evidence that any two packs of tape are exactly identical, even if they claim to be. Samples are always helpful but investing in an actual package helps guarantee that you will have all the right qualities (adhesives for example).
Most stores sell tape in bulk which is cheaper than purchasing small amounts. Find a store that sells lots of different kinds of tapes. It may take you time to find what works best for you, but this is also a worthwhile investment.
Why are you asking?
As we mentioned, gorilla tape is great for holding together bundles of bank statements or receipts, but it can also be used to help hold other objects.
Many people keep their skin in good shape by bringing with them all sorts of bottles they have acquired over time.
A lot of these bottles were tried and true favorites, so when a new one comes along, it often leads to questions about whether that bottle will work well on your body.
You’ve probably noticed this phenomenon first hand — friends who buy baby clothes sometimes find themselves struggling to wear their shirts more frequently.
More likely than not, their collection of wine glasses has grown quite large over time.
Many companies sell similar products that claim to be made for human skin. But these are not always identical, even though they are both called “tape”.
There is no consensus among brands or scientists about which brand or type of tape is best for the skin. Different people at different labs test things out to see if they work. I can’t find any scientific tests that have been done on gorilla skin tapes.
That said, there are some factors that make us think twice before going too far in choosing one over the other. First, it seems that most commercial skin care products contain ingredients that are quite toxic to humans (and expensive, topical vitamins and supplements can also contribute to dry skin). Second, animal studies show that collagen peptides may improve several symptoms associated with aging skin, including reducing fine wrinkles and scars.
However, recent research has shown limited effectiveness of collagen peptide supplementation on photodamaged human skin. Therefore, while these may help mitigate some age-related changes in your skin, you might still need to tackle other issues such as loose skin and deep wrinkles.
Do not use it if you don’t feel comfortable
This product was made for skin to skin contact, but only performs its intended purpose when administered by professionals.
This adhesive layer seals the wound after surgery, sticks medical tape to your skin, and holds together bandages or wraps used around limbs to reduce swelling and pain.
It also helps with drainage of fluids from an incision that is left over night. No other products out there can do this as effectively as gorilla tape.
However, we don’t advise using it on the exterior of any wounds nor should you try at home. It may take training sessions with a professional to learn how to apply it properly.

Gorilla tape is an eco-friendly bandage that can be used to stop flow of blood in the wound, maintain proper moisture in the skin, and promote healing. It can also be used as a splint to hold two bones together during recovery.
This bandage was developed by Craig Vannek Jr., founder and director of The Trench Co.:
He created this product after seeing how animals protect themselves with sugary secretions from their mouths. As a result of his experience taming hundreds of gorillas at World Wildlife Fund’s wildlife rescue center, Vannek knew there would be great benefit for people suffering from injuries or recovering from surgery.
Doctors have also found gorilla grip strength helpful when trying to move bodies that need extra assistance (e.g. obesity). People with overweight issues can try this to help get back into a healthy range of motion.
