Munny’s Krūra Cold Sore Cream
Cold sores are caused by the Herpes simplex virus which is transmitted by direct contact with infected secretions and can remain dormant in the system until triggered by things like a cold, emotional stress, illness, trauma and exposure to sunlight.
It causes sores on your external lip or near your mouth or nose that last anywhere from seven to 14 days. Although many people use the terms "cold sore" and "canker sore" interchangeably, they're different. Unlike cold sores, canker sores are bacterial infections inside the mouth that are characterised by small, round, white areas surrounded by a sharp halo of red. And while cold sores are highly contagious, canker sores are not.
Most commercial cold sore creams contain chemicals and preservatives such as petrolatum, cetearyl alcohol, ceteareth-20, sodium methlparaben, sodium propylparaben which are not ideal for application on your lips or the sensitive skin around your lips. Some commercial creams claim to contain natural ingredients but they also contain the above preservatives so always read the label.
Munny’s Krūra is a 100% natural and chemical free blend of the following: Shea Butter, Virgin Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Almond Oil, Grapeseed Oil and Essential oils of Clove, Peppermint, Lavender, Tea Tree, Melissa and Eucalyptus.
Coconut Oil is naturally moisturising and acts as a powerful anti-bacterial.
Almond Oil is rich in Vitamin E and Zinc and has been known to heal and nourish the skin and soothe it from irritation and inflammation.
Shea Butter is not only an anti-fungal and antibacterial but is useful in moisturising, softening, healing and protecting your skin.
Beeswax provides protection against irritants while still allowing the skin to breathe. It also has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral properties making it helpful in treating skin irritation.
Grapeseed Oil is an incredibly strong antioxidant, about 50 times stronger than antioxidants like, vitamin C and E. This can provide protection against cellular and tissue damage caused by free radicals. Grapeseed oil also contains high levels of Vitamin E which aids in preventing any cell membrane related injuries.
Cocoa butter creates a barrier on the skin and protects it from external environmental agents. Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, meaning it can penetrate deep-down into the skin and hydrate from within. It can also be helpful for many skin problems like eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and skin irritation.
Tea Tree Oil is known for its antiseptic, anti-fungal and infection-reducing properties.
Melissa Oil has been proven to exert a direct antiviral effect on herpes viruses.
Clove oil has antimicrobial, anti-fungal and antiseptic properties due to which it has been widely used for oral infections and as a broad-spectrum antimicrobial to keep countless diseases at bay.
Peppermint Oil has been found to be effective against 22 bacterial strains and eleven fungi.
Lavender Oil is known for its anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antidepressant, antiseptic, antibacterial, and antimicrobial properties.
Both herpes viruses HSV-1 and HSV -2 have proven to be significantly inhibited by pre-treatment with Melissa oil prior to infection of cells so regular application of Munny’s Krūra could act as a preventative measure of cold sores.
Apply a small amount of cream on the affected area 2-3 times a day. Do not dip the same finger used for application on affected area back into the pot.
