Carmex has launched a new product called Carmex Cold Sore Treatment, the only over-the-counter cold sore treatment that works on contact to block pain and itch with 10% Benzocaine, while also minimizing the appearance of a sore.
This breakthrough product features TriPLEX Formula advanced technology, which combines three different optical brightener and filler technologies that each provide unique appearance minimizing benefits. According to the National Institutes of Health, herpes simplex virus 1, the virus that causes cold sores, infects more than half of the U.S. population by the time they reach their 20s. The majority of these sufferers acknowledge that a cold sore can be painful especially as it blisters and forms a crusty scab.
The combination of the three technologies found in TriPLEX Formula advanced technology allows this new formulation to provide cold sore appearance softening benefits. The first technology bends light as it approaches the cold sore, the second technology helps fill in unevenness of the cold sore, and the third technology helps correct the skin tone of the cold sore. The formula also contains a blend of silicone elastomers, commonly used in high-end skincare products, to give the product a smooth, silky feel.
While no product can cure a cold sore (as in remove the virus from one’s system), this breakthrough treatment can help sufferers feel more comfortable, confident and empowered to face the world.
