Natural Soap Infused with Sulphur

Natural Soap Infused with Sulphur Sulphur and its compounds are noted for their antibacterial and antioxidant properties. That’s why sulphur has long been used to treat some skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, scabies and ringworm (dermatophytosis). It can be added to various pharmaceutical and personal care products, including soap. Sulphur soap will take good care of your skin and make you forget what acne is.

Sulphur widely occurs in nature. Elemental sulphur can be found near hot springs and volcanic regions in many parts of the world. Naturally occurring sulphur compounds include the sulphate and sulphide minerals such as gypsum, alunite, barite, stibnite, sphalerite, galena, cinnabar, and pyrite. Besides, sulphur can be produced from natural gas, petroleum, and related fossil resources.

Soaps and other cosmetic products are made with highly purified sulphur obtained using chemical, distillation and crystallisation methods. Such sulphur is very similar to the sulphur contained in the human body, which allows it to participate in certain biological processes.

So what are the main benefits of sulphur soap for your skin? As we’ve already mentioned above, sulphur is valued for its strong disinfecting properties. It effectively eliminates harmful bacteria, fungi and even insects such as lice. Besides, sulphur helps to regulate sebum secretion and thus is great for taking care of oily skin and hair and preventing dandruff.

Thanks to the useful properties of sulphur, sulphur soap helps to treat hyperpigmentation and produces a whitening effect, eliminates acne and prevents acne scars, relieves irritated skin, unclogs and tightens pores, makes the skin smoother, and treats skin conditions such as seborrhoea, psoriasis and scabies. Daily use sulphur soap designed to prevent skin problems usually contains about 3% sulphur, while medicinal soap may contain up to 10% sulphur.

Sulphur soap is an effective and affordable product, which accounts for its popularity. You can use it just like your regular soap, but you should keep in mind that soap infused with sulphur may irritate sensitive skin, causing dryness and itching. So we recommend that you conduct a patch test to make sure your skin isn’t too sensitive to sulphur. Besides, you shouldn’t use it several times a day, one is enough.

How to check whether you’re allergic to sulphur? All you have to do is apply a little soap to your inner wrist and wait for several munites. Symptoms such as itching, stinging, red skin or flaking indicate that you shouldn’t use sulphur soap. Such soap is also unsuitable for damaged or extremely dry skin.

If you’re planning to use sulphur soap to prevent skin conditions, you should use it once a day for a month and then take a break for another month. But if you’re going to use soap infused with sulphur as a skin treatment, you must consult a cosmetologist or dermatologist first. In any case, using sulphur soap more often than twice a day is not encouraged.

Sulphur soap is very easy to use. You need to moisten the bar and lather it in your hands, then apply the lather to your face. Don’t stretch or rub the skin! Leave the lather on for 20–30 seconds, then rinse it off thoroughly with warm water, pat the skin dry with a towel and apply your moisturiser of choice.

As its already been said, sulphur soap is an effective skin treatment, but it might dry the skin out. That’s why it is important to choose high-quality soap with natural moisturising and nourishing ingredients that help to prevent dehydration and minimise the side effects of sulphur.
