Sulfur is a naturally occurring mineral found in hot springs, clay and volcanic ash — as well as a trace mineral in the human body. It is known to have bactericidal properties according to 2017 research published in Evidence-based complementary and alternative medicine, making it ideal for acne-prone skin.
