Sulfur is one of the ‘secret’ ingredients of Rescue Blemish Away, the small successful and very effective product that we make for over 40 years for people that are plagued with pimples, break-outs and oily skin who expect an overnight success…. ! What is sulfur and why do we use it for so many years?
Sulfur is mainly found in areas of high volcanic activity. Sulfur compounds make Icelandic bath tubs smell like eggs as Iceland uses geothermal energy to heat its water. But it is not just around volcanos that sulfur can be found. Salt flats are a cozy home for many sulfur producing bacteria and sulfur is an essential element in pretty much all living things. It helps our cells to utilize oxygen efficiently and is also part of our DNA.
In addition, much of the strength in our hair can be attributed to sulfur that occur in our keratin; the hairs protein. It is through making changes to keratin that we can straighten or perm wave our hair. It occurs naturally in our bodies and in the environment. Sulfur is good even if it smells bad.
So what good does sulfur do in this great natural skin care product?
Sulfur is an ingredient to reduce blemishes and to control dandruff and even can prevent hair loss. To me sulfur is a most amazing ingredient with its anti-acne, anti-ageing and anti-bacterial credentials. It is calming and soothing when used in the right proportions. If one suffers from acne, psoriasis, scalp problems or other skin conditions, it is worth trying Rescue Blemish Away.
At my days as a cosmetologist in The Netherlands, I used this wonderful product even on the scalp as “scalp mask treatment” with often amazing results by dandruff and sometimes hair loss. Women who have experienced the almost magic touch of Rescue Blemish Away keep this great product always as “emergency” treatment at hand to quickly heal and clear blemishes.
Simply dot Rescue Blemish Away on the affected areas at bed-time and by morning, wake up to clear, radiant skin. It helps correct breakouts and minimizes the appearance of minor imperfections. Restores balance to blemished skin and includes LevensESSENTIE Gold® mixture of 22 certified organically grown herbs. This traditional formulation is our pride for over 40 years.
We thank Nature for sulfur; a truly wonderful super-ingredient!
