Effective in every way

Herstat can be used at any point during your cold sore outbreak and helps relieve your symptoms and the shorten healing time by alleviating dry, cracked, sore lips.

Carefully balanced formula

Our ointment 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. This helps your body to accelerate the natural healing process and alleviate the pain.

We also use Lanolin (wool Fat), Liquid Paraffin and a patented, purified propolis extract – known as Propolis ACF® – which is derived from beehives located in a specific region of Canada.

Apply Herstat at any stage

What's great about Herstat Lip Care is you can apply the ointment at any stage of the cycle.

Unlike some 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 outbreak. 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.

The Propolis ACF® ingredient makes our ointment pleasant to use with a nice vanilla-like scent and a smooth texture which also helps to soothe and moisturise your lips, stopping your lips from drying out and becoming more uncomfortable.

Money Back Guarantee!
We will refund your money if you find that Herstat is not the best product that you have ever tried to ease the symptoms of your cold sore.

"I never write reviews and I purchase a lot on Amazon. But I had to write one for Herstat ointment. Like many, I have suffered from cold sores since I was a child. The older I get the less frequent they become but the anxiety and embarrassment get worse. I have tried everything on the market but nothing really works, how it says it should. I woke up the other day with a small cold sore, I don't get the tingle, they just appear as a red lump in the mornings. I immediately put herstat on it and repeated to do so several times that day. I can honestly say, it never amounted to anything other than a tiny lump. No itching, swelling, soreness; nothing. I have never, ever had that reaction to a product. When a sore arises it grows big and lasts for around 10 days. I also use the Herstat lip balm every day and night. I believe that using both together really works wonders."

"I don’t usually write reviews but in this case I had to! I have suffered on and off for years with cold sores and tried so many different treatments, including Zovirax but nothing has ever really worked effectively. Herstat was recommended to me by a friend who said it was ‘life changing’ for her. She was right! Not only has this cleared up my cold sore around four days quicker than acyclovir based treatments but it had a really soothing effect that made me feel like I was actually doing my skin some good instead of killing it with chemicals. There was almost no itchiness and hardly any blistering. Apparently they also make a stick I can use to keep the cold sores away, I haven’t tried that yet but I definitely will. I honestly can’t recommend this product highly enough! Thank you so much Herstat"

"Finally a cold sore treatment that really works well, at the 1st sign I apply this gel and the cold sore either doesn’t appear or it’s so unlike my usual cold sore out breaks it made me wonder if I’d actually had one at all!! Since using this product a cold sore out break is a lot less traumatic too, the symptoms don’t seem as bad, my cold sores have been a lot smaller, not blistered and turned crusty, healed and disappeared a lot quicker, there’s not been much pain either. For me this product works so much better than others on the market, it’s brilliant and would highly recommend to other sufferers. I received a free lip care stick too which I now use instead of my other lip balms. Thank you for the freebie and for this life changing product."
