For some, sulphur is too freaky for skincare. But its hellish rotten egg smell is not without benefits: sulphur has been used since way back in Hippocrates’ day to heal skin. As a keratolytic agent, sulphur opens clogged pores by helping the skin to shed. The antimicrobial qualities of sulphur then combat the bacteria inside the affected pore. And sulphur also aids in reducing inflammation, with a low potential for side effects. I guess Arcona could have named this product the Sulphur Mask, if they desperately wanted to kill the mask’s sex appeal.
High Standards in Manufacturing
The LA-based skincare experts at Arcona believe in the benefits of cold-processing their active ingredients. Any raw foodist will gladly extol the virtues of keeping the heat low. Yet many cosmetics manufacturers heat-process their products, which is quicker and less expensive, although it yields a less nutritious result. Glad to know the actives are cold-pressed here.
Where to Purchase
The Arcona Tea Tree Mask is $30 for a 2 oz. tube.
How to Use
Use 2-3 times per week or as needed. And be sure to use the product within 6 months of opening.
