A 'fat burning' lip balm going on sale this week has been attacked as a marketing ploy which preys on women's fears about gaining weight.

The balm was launched in the U.S. earlier this year as a 'fat reduction breakthrough' that can help women control their appetite and boost energy.

The makers claim the £4.95 product contains appetite suppressants and improves metabolism with a simple lick of the lips.

But British critics say the lip salve will do little to cause 'substantive' weight loss, and there is no substitute for eating less and exercising more.

Dr Allan Kurtz, the American doctor behind the lip balm, which can be bought online in the UK, said he invented it because there was a demand from his patients for a weight loss aid.
He said: 'People who have used this have reported losing between 6lb and 10lb without changing anything else. It works by suppressing appetite.

'There are always cookies and cakes in my office and when I wear this I see my appetite going away.

'Because it goes into your system through your lips it works quickly and you still get the oral gratification of putting something on your mouth.'

The balm contains hoodia extract which Dr Kurtz claims is an appetite suppressant.

It was originally used in plant form by Kalahari bushmen.

It also contains green tea extract to 'aid metabolism' - previous U.S. research suggests drinking green tea may increase energy levels by 4 per cent - and chromium picolinate which 'helps burn fat and increase energy'.

The ingredients are contained within a grease mixture made from shea butter and safflower oil.

Tam Fry, of the National Obesity Forum, said both green tea and hoodia were thought to help with weight loss, although tests showing this have been carried out on different forms of consumption.
