The third most abundant mineral in the human body. Sulfur is an essential mineral critical to many of the body’s biological processes. It can be found in collagen and elastin, two structural proteins responsible for skin elasticity. Sulfur is also found in keratin, a main structural component of hair, skin, nails, and tooth enamel. Because of its anti-fungal, antimicrobial, and antibacterial properties, sulfur is used in skincare to help eradicate the effects of acne, psoriasis, warts, dandruff, eczema, and folliculitis. Creams, lotions, and bar soaps containing sulfur are often used to unclog pores, absorb excess oil and relieve swelling and redness related to acne.
