Sulfur is a commonly occurring element on Earth (and our universe!). In cosmetics, it helps kill bacteria, reduces sebum, and provides exfoliation. This makes it an effective ingredient to reduce breakouts and fight acne.

As a ketayolytic agent, it breaks down the top layer of skin. This is a form of exfoliation and may help decrease acne and hyperpigmentation.

Studies show sulfur has antibacterial and antifungal properties. Sulfur can be drying if used excessively. We recommend speaking with a professional if you have any concerns.

Ancient Greece, India, China, and Egypt have used sulfur in both traditional medicines and for household use.

Sticky and stinky.
I didn’t notice any difference in my skin after trying this mask several times. Well, that’s not entirely true… my skin definitely smelled like sulfur after using this, but in regards to improvement of my acne— NOPE. When I first tried this, I was surprised that it actually doesn’t smell bad upon initial application, however once water is added to the mix when rinsing this product off then that smell just hits you. I even tried washing this off in the shower so as to get a good long rinse but even after that the smell still lingered. I will acknowledge that sulfur does have acne fighting properties, but I just find benzoyl peroxide to be so much more effective. The only people I would recommend this product to are the extremely sensitive; meaning your skin can’t handle benzoyl peroxide in any way, including wash off formulas such as cleansers or doing short contact therapy (leaving BPO on the skin for about 15 minutes, then washing it off). That’s the only instance I would recommend this product, otherwise I believe there to be better alternatives available.
