Sulfur is the active Mineral ingredient in volcanic ash. It not only helps the body to resist bacteria but it actively works to destroy it. Sulfur exists in our haemoglobin and connective body tissue to purify the blood, stimulate bile secretion, protect the protoplasm of cells and for the synthesis of Collagen (one of the main proteins for the structural integrity of the skin. Sulfur slows down the aging process because of its ability to protect against the toxic effects of pollution and radiation. It is part of the chemical structure of amino acids glutathoine, taurine, cysteine and methionine.
Known as "nature's beauty mineral", Sulfur fights skin disorders such as acne, dandruff and flaky, reddish skin. It is needed to stabilise keratin protein in our nails and hair. It is a key ingredient in shampoos, cleansing bars, spot treatments, acne and body scrubs. Volcanic pumice makes for a milder, gentler exfoliant, especially for the face and neck areas. Our volcanic ash and pumice products in the form of body scrubs and exfoliants works to cleanse and purify the skin by killing bacteria and removing dead skin cells.
Volcanic ash mixed into the earth will bond to water, under pressure. Pure ash, mixed with spring or mineral water, is used to create mud baths (like in a spa) and facial mud masks.
