1. What is Lime Sulfur?

Lime Sulfur, also known as Calcium Polysulfide or Sulfurated Lime Solution, is a molecule made up of multiple Sulfur atoms and a Calcium atom. Lime sulfur generally exists in a dissolved/liquid state. Sulfur powder by itself is not very soluble or bioavailable. Many of our formulations use soluble form of Sulfur (Lime Sulfur) to make it easy for skin to absorb and address the underlying causes of skin issues.
In Ayurveda (science of holistic and alternative medicine), Sulfur (Gandhak) has been mentioned and used for hundreds of years. Sulfur has demonstrated benefits to not only address skin problems ranging from itchiness, dermatitis and broad range infections but also as preventive care.
