It would seem the original adhesive bandage remains the best, as Johnson & Johnson’s Band-Aids have achieved our Everyday Essentials Award in this category for 2014.
The award, developed by recording the customer satisfaction levels of certain Australian shoppers, should help consumers find the best first aid product to treat minor injuries.
Band-Aid has a wide range of products, including bandages with anti-biotics manufactured into the stitching, heavy duty Band Aids that adhere to skin for long periods, and a multitude of children’s products to ease the pain of little cuts and scrapes.
Elastoplast, ALDI, Woolworths, and Coles Brands were also compared in these results.
Canstar Blue commissions Colmar Brunton to regularly survey 2,500 Australian consumers across a range of categories to measure and track customer satisfaction. The outcomes reported in these Everyday Essentials Awards are the results from customers within the survey group who have purchased and used an adhesive bandage (commonly known as a band aid) in the last six months – in this case, 1,530 people.
Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included.
