Your Body with sulphur
Sulphur is a mineral present in every cell in the human body, with its greatest concentration in hair, skin and nails. It has also been called the "healing mineral" because of its ability to promote circulation and decrease inflammation.
Sulphur baths, and other forms of sulphur applied directly to the skin, seem to benefit psoriasis, eczema, acne, dandruff, folliculitis (infected hair follicles), warts, and pityriasis versicolor (a chronic skin disorder characterised by patches of skin that differ in colour from the usual skin tone).
Researchers and Dermatologists have worked hard to find different methods to treat skin problems. During the research, it has been found that Sulphur can be used to help. Sulphur is a Keratolytic agent that helps to shed dead cells. Dead skin cells are responsible for blocking the skin pores and creating the conditions necessary for acne causing bacteria to multiply. Compound sulphonamides of sulphur help in retarding the growth of bacteria. Sulphonamides limit the acids in bacteria that are responsible in the reproduction of the bacteria, therefore making sulphur a good agent to treat seborrhoea, acne, eczema and psoriasis conditions.
Topically, sulphur-rich creams are used to treat problems such as scalp conditions. It has been particularly successful in treating Seborrhoeic Dermatitis.
All of our products are suitable for family use, and all skin types, but especially suitable for those people who may be prone to Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne and other skin conditions*
