Sulphur in Skincare

  1. Dries out blemishes: Sulfur reduces sebum (oil) on the skin. When applied to the blemish, sulfur works to dry out the skin so it can then be sloughed away.
  2. Promotes exfoliation:Sulfur works to exfoliate dead skin and remove impurities because it has a keratolytic effect (meaning it works to soften and thin the epidermis).
  3. Fights bacteria: Sulfur has antibacterial properties which makes it a dermatologist-favorite because it kills bacteria, fungi, and various parasites.
  4. Treats skin conditions: Because sulfur is anti-inflammatory and helps to soften and exfoliate thick dead skin, it’s great for treating acne, psoriasis, and dandruff. It’s also known to treat eczema and rosacea.
