Care of infected lips (cold sores)
and reduction of herpes labialis out-breaks
Spirularin HS Lip Creme has been developed for the protection of lips and to reduce the visible symptoms after an outbreak; for its special suitability to care for herpes prone lips it combines two benefits:
- Firstly Spiralin®, an active micro-algae extract, which 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 minimizes associated pain.
- Secondly it provides a strong sun-protection factor (SPF-15), to reduce the risk of triggering out-breaks by UV-exposure8. This works in combination with natural oils and high-quality nurturing ingredients to stabilize the impaired skin barrier.
An application study4 showed that natural lip care with Spirularin® HS has superior results to the usual pharmaceutical products. Also it can prevent out-breaks of labial herpes usually triggered by stress, UV-radiation, etc. 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.
Spirularin® HS Lip Serum … it works, naturally!
As part of the product range, Spirularin® HS lip serum received the ‘Product of the Year 2013‘ award from the European Journal of Aesthetic Dermatology3.
