LipQ Liquorice & Melissa Lip Gel
LipQ Liquorice & Melissa Lip Gel contains a highly concentrated extract of liquorice extract and can help protect lips from cold sore outbreaks.
The two key cold sore fighting ingredients in the rescue lip gel are Glycyrrhizic acid from liquorice and Melissa oil.
Glycyrrhizic acid extracted from Liquoirce root. Glycyrrhizic acid specifically targets the genes that are required to maintain the virus in its latent state by interfering with the production of special proteins that feed the infected cells. Research published in the US Journal of Clinical Investigation has shown that liquorice has the ability to weaken the cold sore virus which lies dormant in the skin between outbreaks.
Melissa oil is renowned for its strong anti-viral action. A study in November 2004 and published in the prestigious journal Phytomedicine, found that a concentrated extract of 50 micro/ml had a significant anti-viral effect on the herpes simplex virus.
