Sulfur Soap

With Lanolin


Lanolin has been used to great effect on the treatment of problem lips, rashes from diapers, skin trouble on the feet and small cuts. Lanolin is meant to help balance the skin's usual moisture levels. This is supposed to provide an extra smooth feel to dry, itchy or irritated skin. Sulphur soap together with lanolin is meant to thoroughly cleanse the whole body while leaving your skin soft and silky.


Uses


For Scabies


The use of sulphur to ease skin conditions is hardly recent. Sulphur has been used in the soothing and treatment of skin conditions for more than two centuries. Skin conditions that have shown healing potential with sulphur treatments include psoriasis, eczema, psoriasis, scabies and fungal infections. Sulphur soap helps to eliminate scabies rash by penetrating the rash caused by mites burrowing under the skin.


For Acne


The antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties of sulphur soap work to remove built-up oils and dirt. As proven, a good regular cleanse can help prevent acne breakouts, the soap's benefits go well beyond the usual cleaning benefits. The sulphur in the soap helps take off the dead layer of skin cells and clean out the pores to get rid of all that deep-seated oil and dirt that causes skin trouble.


What makes the difference in the fight against acne is that some sulphur soaps also contain salicylic acid, which is described as a beta hydroxyl acid that has beneficial anti-acne properties. Salicylic acid/sulfur soap is a topical salicylate that works by causing the skin to soften and then peel off in areas where it is applied


For Rosacea


Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition affecting about 14 million people in America in which blood vessels in the face enlarge to cause redness, flushing, spots and pustules. Largely affecting fair skinned people, the condition can also cause thickening of the facial skin, and sore eyes. Rosacea worsens with time if left untreated. It is often mistaken for acne, eczema or some other skin allergy. There is no scientific evidence that the condition can be treated by sulphur soap though some people with the condition have used it and claim it helps.
