Care and protection for lips prone to herpes simplex infections

Oral herpes simplex (Herpes labialis) is a common and often very stressful condition for those affected. After the first infection, the virus remains in the body for a lifetime. Uncomfortable outbreaks may reoccur from time to time with the coincidence of certain risk factors, such as e.g. exposure to sunlight, disgust, stress, and a weakened immune system. This usually happens at the most inconvenient of times.

In addition to small blisters, crusty scabs develop, which are primarily caused by additional bacterial infections. It is easy for the microorganisms infecting the wound (particularly staph. aureus) to establish themselves on lips infected with and weakened by herpes. The scabs are particularly stressful because of the optical appearance as well as the pain associated with them.

The permanent make-up treatment of the lips of subjects with a history of herpes is one of the safest methods to activate oral herpes.

The invisible and neutral tasting specialty lip care using Spirularin® HS cream contains high-quality natural oils such as among others thistle oil, jojoba oil and Shea butter harvested from controlled biological cultivation.

In addition to the sun protection factor (SPF 15), the patented active extract from microalgae, Spiralin® with its various nurturing, protective and regenerative properties1,2,3 ensures the special suitability for the care of lips prone to herpes infections. Special glucose molecules (polysaccharides) contained in Spiralin® are covering healthy skin cells with a kind of ‘protective film‘1, which prevents viruses from entering into healthy cells. New viruses can only form if viruses can enter into healthy cells.

In addition, Spiralin® exhibits strong antimicrobial properties2,3, which offer protection against bacterial infections.

An application study4 shows that lip care with Spirularin® HS can prevent labial herpes after a very potent herpes trigger (permanent make-up treatment). By using the lip care with  Spirularin® HS especially in the presence of particularly critical risk constellations (e.g. stress associated with an exam, sun exposure during vacation, disgust associated with poor hygiene in a foreign environment), an outbreak can usually be prevented before any symptoms develop.
