Dr Sosnowski’s Herstat GST is formulated to provide effective relief from the symptoms of genital sores.
The carefully balanced formula of GST helps to soothe and calm the symptoms of genital sores and provides temporary relief of pain, itching and inflammation.
- • Effective for the treatment of genital sores
- • Provides temporary relief of pain
- • Provides temporary relief of discomfort caused by inflammation
- • Soothes and moisturizes the delicate areas of skin
- • Vitamin rich formula, highly conducive to restoring healthy skin
- • Contains a rich blend of vitamins and bioflavonoids including 3% Purified Propolis Extract, Thyme Leaf Oil, Eucalyptus Leaf Oil, 3% Almond Oil, Olive Extracts and Caster Seed Oil.
Alongside the Active Ingredients, Herstat GST contains a powerful blend of other nourishing ingredients, known for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties as well as providing moisturizing relief, especially to the delicate areas of skin.
This vitamin rich formula comprises key research-proven nutrients that deliver moisturizing antioxidants to the affected area which include Vitamins A, E and K.
Here’s an overview of what these vitamins are best known for in skin care:
Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) is a powerful moisturizing antioxidant which improves skin hydration and protects the delicate skin-cell membranes from oxidation by free radicals.
Vitamin A is widely considered to be among the best skin care ingredients to be found. This vitamin works by binding to receptors in skin cells and in doing so it strengthens the protective function of the epidermis and protects the vital collagen. It also stimulates skin cell regeneration and is included to help restore healthy skin around the affected area.
Vitamin K, which is present in the Thyme Oil, Propolis and Almond Oil in GST also helps to protect the skin’s collagen and is highly beneficial to cell repair and regeneration.
This balanced blend of vitamins are included to promote soft, well-hydrated skin in the affected area.
The pain relief in Herstat GST is primarily provided by the Active Ingredient Camphor, which is included at 3%. Natural Camphor is derived from the leaves and bark of Cinnamomum Camphora tree but it can also be biosynthetically synthesised. Camphor is a highly effective topical pain reliever and is perfect for providing temporary relief of pain and discomfort.
Herstat GST also contains the Active Ingredient Menthol. Menthol contains a range of phenolic compounds such as α-pinene, citronellol, and methyl eugenol. Menthol is included in a wide variety of pharmaceutical preparations and is included in GST for its moderate analgesic properties. It also acts as a natural preservative of the ointment and thus we do not need to use synthetic preservatives within our ointment.
3% Purified Propolis Extract
All Herstat products contain 3% Purified Propolis Extract. Our propolis is all sustainably sourced from the Manitoba region of Canada. We trace all our propolis to source and only obtain our crude propolis from a group of trusted Manitoban beekeepers, who collect excess propolis for us during the honey extraction period. Propolis comprises a range of phytonutrients and in particular an important group of polyphenols, including phenolic acids and flavonoids. These bioflavonoids help preserve the ointment and thus we do not need to include any synthetic preservatives in our preparations. The propolis in Herstat GST also lends the ointment its characteristic and very pleasing aroma.
Causes of genital sores
Genital sores can be caused by the herpes simplex virus. Herstat GST is not a cure for genital herpes and will not eradicate the HSV-1 or HSV-2 herpes virus. If you think you have genital herpes you should consult your doctor. Herstat GST will not prevent an STD. Herstat GST is designed to treat the uncomfortable symptoms of genital sores.
Sores in the genital area can also be caused through various sporting activities, such a cycling, rowing and endurance running. Herstat GST is also an ideal treatment for sports related genital sores.
