What is Sulphur?
Sulphur is a chemical element that is living in all tissues, It is actually the third most abundant element after calcium and phosphorus.
In skincare, When sulphur is applied topically, it targets 2 things, dead skin cells and sebum. But when compared to other topical treatments like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, It's 100 times gentler on the skin.
Its method of action is to dry out the surface of your skin to help absorb excess oil (sebum) that may contribute to acne breakouts. It also dries out dead skin cells to help unclog your pores.
It can work on milder forms of hormonal acne such as white heads and blackheads to more severe types like nodules and cysts.
By applying a topical based sulphur treatment on clogged pores once daily, it can reduce the pore size, dry out the excess oil and break down the dead skin cells.
