What is Salicylic Acid?
Salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid, is a chemical exfoliator. Salicylic acid helps remove dead skin cells to reveal a smoother, brighter skin underneath. This helps to prevent pores from being clogged and can help remove clogs that have already formed. Salicylic acid is gentle enough for use if you have sensitive skin.

How We Make Sulphur Soap
- We carefully weigh the all-vegetable blend of oils and the lye solution in separate containers.
- Next we then carefully add the cooled lye solution to the oils and mix using a stick blender. The soap will thicken as it converts to soap, the process is called saponificacion.
- We then add 99.9% pure sulfur powder and salicylic acid.
- When soap thickens even more, it is poured into the mold
- After 24 hours, the soap is removed from the mold and cut into individual soaps.
- Then, it is left to cure for 3-4 weeks before use.
We offer several soaps for helping with skin conditions. Neem Handmade Soap and Tea Tree & Aloe Handmade Soap have similar antiseptic properties. Also, the Black Handmade Soap and Dead Sea Mud Handmade Soap are great choices for treating oily complexions. An even better option, is to alternate soaps every couple of days or use a different soap in the morning and another in the evening.
