AlgalAid is a topical cream used for the treatment of cold sores and fever blisters. It contains pure algal extracts from a unique family of red marine algae harvested from remote North Pacific waters, and other natural ingredients.
AlgalAid is a not just another red marine algae product. The extraction techniques and formula developed by Blue Moon Marine Botanicals deliver whole plant extracts through the skin where they stop the virus from infecting cells. If used at the first sign of a cold sore, AlgalAid can prevent an outbreak. Later applications can speed healing, reduce pain, and shorten the duration of the outbreak and infectious period. For more than 20 years, the marine botanicals we harvest for AlgalAid have been used by pharmacists to effectively treat cold sores and fever blisters.
Aloe vera (Aloe barbadensis) is a well known succulent with emollient properties. It contains amino acids, minerals, vitamins, enzymes, proteins, and polysaccharides that are similar to algal polysaccharides. We use it because it acts synergistically with our preservatives.
Citric acid is found in many citrus fruits: pineapples, gooseberries, limes, plums, lemons, peaches, oranges, and grapefruit. We use it as a preservative and to adjust the pH of AlgalAid to match that of your lips.
Comfrey extract (not to exceed 1.5% allantoin) is an anti-microbial, oral care agent with healing, soothing and anti-irritating properties.
Deionized Water is purified water made by forcing water under pressure through a semi-permeable membrane which separates pure water molecules from salts and other impurities.
