My name is Dan Gosling and I am a professional trumpet player. I’m also known as The ChopSaver Guy. (See Dan’s full bio below)

So, what’s ChopSaver?

ChopSaver is an all-natural, herbal lip care product that I created in my kitchen! ChopSaver was inspired by a random conversation I had several years ago with one of my students. He told me how he treated a lip injury he suffered in a marching band accident with an herb called Arnica. (See more company info below)

Holding product

What’s Arnica?

Arnica is a natural healing agent derived from a sunflower. It reduces bruising and swelling. I was so amazed to learn about this “secret ingredient” that I decided right then that I was going to make the best…lip balm…ever! I was obsessed! For the next 2 months, I was like a mad scientist in my kitchen – combining all sorts of natural healing elements and plant-based moisturizers until I had the perfect combination of ingredients. (Of course, my wife thought it was a mid-life crisis!)


What’s in it?

ChopSaver is full of amazing things like shea butter, mango butter, avocado oil, aloe, citrus oils, grapeseed oil and arnica – all known for their healing, soothing qualities. (Click here to see more.) There’s really nothing quite like it! You might even call it a “Symphony of Ingredients” because musicians all over the world love it. And now medical professionals from dermatologists to oncologists recommend ChopSaver for their patients with chronic lip problems. So, shouldn’t you use a lip balm that actually works? Use ChopSaver!
