Are bandages only for white people?

When Toby Meisenheimer's son Kai cut his forehead, he realised that most bandages were only designed for white people. He told Vivienne Nunis about how he was inspired to set up a company to make bandages for a wider range of skin tones and the emotional reactions people have when they discover they can use a bandage which matches their skin.
