Care of infected lips (cold sores) & reduction of herpes labialis outbreaks
Spirularin HS Lip Cream has been developed for the protection of lips prone to herpes and to reduce the visible symptoms after an outbreak.Spiralin®, an active microalgae extract, forms an anti-microbial film¹ over healthy cells and acts as prophylactic lip care against bacterial, viral and fungal pathogens, to also prevent secondary infections. In addition, this transparent, neutral tasting cream also improves the visual appearance by reducing dry lips or crusty scabs and minimises associated pain.
Spirularin HS provides a strong sun-protection factor (SPF-15), to reduce the risk of one of the most common triggers of herpes: UV-exposure8. This works in combination with natural oils and high-quality nurturing ingredients to stabilise the impaired skin barrier.
An application study4 showed that natural lip care with Spirularin® HS has superior results to the usual pharmaceutical products.
Therefore it’s a very effective pro-active strategy to apply HS creme before permanent make-up (PMU around lips) to avoid activating herpes simplex symptoms.
