Dr Zenon Sosnowski is the man behind our unique formulas. He spent several decades of his life researching the potential human benefits of bee propolis and developed the complex techniques used to refine the various propolis extracts included in all Herstat® products.

The Herstat® brand represents a range of products designed to treat and/or mitigate the symptoms and effects of the herpes simplex virus, HSV-1 (cold sores) and HSV-2 (genital herpes) in patients. We also manufacture a lip care product which can be used in-between cold sore outbreaks.

Herpes is a major global health problem. The World Health Organisation estimates that 3.7 billion people under the age of 50 (67%) are infected with HSV-1 globally. An estimated 491 million people aged 15–49 (13%) worldwide is infected with herpes simplex HSV-2.

Approximately 60% of those infected with HSV will remain asymptomatic throughout their lifetime and in these subjects the virus lies virtually dormant. However, for those who do manifest symptoms, it can cause painful blisters, swelling and ulcers at the site of infection. Stigmatisation and embarrassment are further discernible side-effects of both cold sores and genital herpes.

Symptoms generally recur over many years in sufferers and medication does not cure or eradicate the underlying virus completely. During the period between episodes the virus retreats into the central nervous system, within the cluster of nerves called the ganglia, situated at the top and bottom of the spine.

Outbreaks occur when the body’s immune system is compromised and can be triggered by anything from sunburn to long-haul travel and menstruation in women. In immunocompromised patients, herpes usually presents more severe symptoms and more frequent recurrences.

Herstat® products fall under various regulatory frameworks in the territories within which they are sold, with the products aimed at cold sore (HSV-1) and genital herpes (HSV-2) sufferers. All Herstat® products contain one of our unique purified propolis extracts. The Herstat® brand is sold in six country territories worldwide and we currently plan to increase this to 12 territories in the near term. Our strategic objective is to establish Herstat® as the leading global brand in the herpes space.

We sell three cold sore related products in the USA and one item designed to treat genital sores. Herstat® is part of the Dr Sosnowski’s™ range of therapeutics and is available from all Walgreens, Rite Aid stores and most other major US pharmacies.
