So How did a Lip Balm for Musicians become recommended by Doctors and Nurses?

My goal in creating ChopSaver Lip Care was to alleviate some of the pain and suffering that can happen to brass and woodwind instrument players. I had no idea it would become recommended by doctors and nurses across the country. How did that happen?

As with so many things, it was a happy accident. Several years ago, a ChopSaver user showed the product to their dermatologist. That dermatologist then reached out to us and requested some more samples. There are many drugs and medical treatments that can cause dry lips as a side effect. One of them is a group of drugs called isotretinoin. The more common name is the brand name ACCUTANE*. These drugs are used by dermatologists to treat severe acne. We then realized we had a whole new market that needed our product. Because of the side effects, patients are often urged to use a lip balm when they are on this drug regimen and more and more dermatologists are recommending ChopSaver for their patients for just that reason.

ChopSaver does not cure any diseases. But it does relieve the dry lips that can happen with drug and medical treatments. The unique combination of natural moisturizers found in ChopSaver brings comfort to dry lip sufferers around the world, and we are so happy to know more and more non-musicians are discovering this musically inspired product.
