Carefully balanced formula

So what makes Herstat different?

We use a patented, purified propolis extract – known as Propolis ACF – which is carefully derived from beehives located in a specific region of Canada. In the natural world, bees manufacture propolis which they use to sterilise their hives and to prevent any viruses and bacteria from infecting the colony. Propolis is known for its anti-microbial, anti-viral and anti-inflamatory properties. It acts as a natural preservative and prevents the need to add any parabens to the Herstat product.

The raw propolis is taken through a systematic cleaning process before being quality checked and certified to meet strict criteria. You can read more about propolis here.

Our ointment also contains a high content of white soft paraffin (petrolatum) along with a variety of other complementary ingredients. These work together to form a protective barrier around the affected area, allowing the cold sore to retain moisture, thus creating a conducive environment for healing. These ingredients also help to soften the skin and relieve dryness, prevent cracking and fissuring of the cold sore, alleviate pain, and accelerate the natural healing process.

Apply treatment at any stage

What's unique about Herstat cold sore care is you can apply the ointment at any stage of the cycle.

That's right – unlike other topical treatments, which need to be applied as soon as you feel the tingle in order to get the full benefit, our product can be used at any point during the infection. This means, regardless of the stage at which you apply the ointment, our special blend of ingredients will continue to work to assist the healing process right through until your cold sore has completely disappeared.

Propolis ACF ingredient makes our ointment pleasant to use with a nice vanilla-like scent and a smooth texture which keeps your cold sore well under control and stops it from drying out and becoming more uncomfortable.
