WE ARE SKIN GRIP

HOW IT STARTED

In 2013, Joshua Parkinson was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 14. None of us knew much about type one diabetes or how it would change his life forever.

Β 

Our family, like many others, had to learn quickly. Adjusting to this new way of life wasn't easy for Josh. Hope came one day at a time.

Β 

When our insurance started covering pumps and monitors, it made Josh's life a lot easier. The problem was that those devices fell off so easily. There were a few tape options available, but the adhesives were weak and caused irritation. Why couldn't someone make a great product that also benefited the diabetes community in a positive way?

Β 

The idea for Skin Grip was born.

DIABETES DOESN'T DEFINE YOU

HOW IT'S GOING

2017 - Skin Grip was just an idea with a budget of $2,000 to become a reality

Mid 2017 - Our first Dexcom G5 tan patch was launched on Amazon.com

2018 - Invested all year one funds back into the business to improve branding, packaging, website, and community giving

Mid 2018 - Our product line expanded to included all diabetes devices and multiple patch colors

2019 - Stopped shipping from our garage and started hiring employees

2020 - Struggled with shutdowns and shortages but still managed to launch our first multi-color pack

2021 - Launched our first scholarship fund

Future - We hope that through our efforts we will be able to impact over 1 million lives. Millions of individuals using Skin Grip means millions of people living fearlessly and making the world a better place. Our goal is to do good not only by making great products but by also giving back hundreds of thousands of dollars to the diabetes community.

Β 

*Put us out of business - We dream to live in a world that has a cure for diabetes. When that day comes we will go out of business, but it's the future we will continue to advocate for.

WE EXIST TO MAKE YOUR LIFE A LITTLE EASIER

OUR VISION

Individuals living with diabetes struggle to keep their glucose monitors inserted in their skin while living active lifestyles. Skin Grip makes strong adhesive tapes to keep monitors secured to the skin so that people with diabetes can participate in their favorite activities with peace of mind.

Β 

We know how hard diabetes can be. Wasting expensive sensors makes life even harder. You deserve to live a life doing what you love without the stress. Diabetes doesn't hold you back, and we believe that your CGM (continuous glucose monitor) shouldn't either.

Β 

Skin Grip gives you the confidence to push the limits a little further because "diabetic" doesn't define you. It will secure your sensors in the pool, shower, ocean, rain, through exercise, sweat, and all your other favorite activities.

Β 

We believe that when individuals with diabetes feel fearless, they can accomplish the extraordinary.
