Sulphur soap is a well-known cosmetic for people with acne or oily skin. It has matte, drying and antibacterial properties. What is more, it limits sebum secretion, is anti-dandruff and regulates work of sebaceous glands. It is recommended for oily skin, though its use should be limited to minimum. Sulphur soap can damage or even utterly destroy natural protective barrier. And as you know, oily skin deprived this barrier will produce excess sebum and as a result on skin can appear increased acne or blackheads.
Besides, sulphur soap soothes inflammations, cleanses and tightens pores. It can be used for other parts of the body (back, cleavage, shoulders) and for the scalp and hair wash. In the last case, you need to be careful how you take care of your hairstyle. If you have oily scalp and dry ends then sulphur soap will help only with excess sebum. Ends have to be washed with moisturising shampoo and then treated with conditioner or hair mask.

Sulphur soaps available on the market, besides about 5% of sulphur, also consist of another ingredients, which can sensitise.
