What is Sage® Sulphur Soap?
Sage Sulphur soap is made with sulfur content. The rest of the soap is made from a neutral soap base and fragrance, to cover the sulfur odor. It is used to treat any common skin conditions, in addition to having antibacterial and antiseptic benefits. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.
Acne Treatment. One of the features of sulphur is that it causes the skin to dry out a bit and peel. When there is acne on your skin, your skin is more moist and oily than normal. Since sulphur dries the skin out, it will help decrease the inflammation of pimples and other blemishes on your skin. Sulfur can also help decrease the appearance of whiteheads on your skin by decreasing the oiliness and preventing pores from becoming blocked.
Scabies Treatment. Scabies occurs when microscopic mites bury themselves under the skin. This causes itching, soreness, and rashes. Sulfur is toxic for microorganisms and can kill these mites, which makes the use of sulphur soap an effective way to get rid of scabies.
Seborrheic Dermatitis. Seborrheic dermatitis is caused by a fungus growing on your skin, which can make your skin greasy, red, flaky, and scaly. This skin disease can occur in many places on your body, including your face, chest, armpits, and hairline. Sulphur soap helps kill the fungus and remove it, which can help treat seborrheic dermatitis.
Rosacea. Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes redness and blemishes or bumps on the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose. It can also occur on your scalp, chest, neck, and ears. The redness becomes more persistent if this disorder is not treated and can become extremely uncomfortable. If left untreated for long periods, blood vessels, referred to as spider veins, may become visible. Sulfur soap, with its drying abilities, can help reduce the redness and clear up rosacea bumps that flare up on your skin.
