|September 2002 - News from SulfurSoap.com|
It's Lora again, with SulfurSoap.com, and welcome to our September newsletter!
Last month we did a piece on the use of SAL3 for keratosis pilaris. This month we thought we'd spend some time on more non-traditional uses for our SAL3 soap, and try and spread the good news as best we can.
Well, the subject for this month is WARTS ! Yes, those creepy skin growths - actually viruses - that pop up on your hands, and other places on your body. Warts are skin lesions that are caused from one of over 60 different types of human papilloma virus that develop slowly, and typically regress just as slowly as they developed.
R. Sutton Jr. describes, " Warts may appear anywhere, in a wide range of shapes, sizes and numbers. Flat warts that grow on the sole of the foot look like corns and hurt like tacks. Warts on a man's face may form little beard-like projections. In moist parts of the body, warts may grow into masses like tiny cauliflowers. Warts may even appear on the lips or tongue. Warts are infections caused by viruses. If a wart is scatched open, the virus may spread by contact to another part of the body or to another person.
The viruses that cause warts live in cells of the surface layer of the skin, and do not infect the deep layer. The thickened surface layer forms folds into which little blood vessels grow. Sometimes warts go away without treatment, perhaps because immunity to the infection develops. Treatment for any wart should be administered by a doctor."
Ever looked at the ingredients of over the counter treatments for warts, like Compound-W™ that you can find in most any supermarket? You'll see that the active ingredient is salicylic acid ! So, a typical topical treatment for warts is the use of salicylic acid, usually in highly concentrated doses
Our SAL3 soap's active ingredients are 3% salicylic acid and 10% sulfur! Here's a suggestion - try using SAL3 soap as a measure of prevention against warts - wash your hands regularly and notice over time if you see a difference! We hear that SAL3 smooths and cleans skin like no other!
Anyway, once again, that pretty much wraps up this month's newsletter. Hope you like the soap, and doesn't the SAL3 make your skin so much fresher and smoother! Yes yes, we know, some of you wish that sulfur aroma was not there, but hey guys, that's what makes it what it is! Anyway, we get lots of emails affirming that this is the best sulfur based soap - and we thank you for those emails and letters - we really care about our soap, and we hope it shows!
Until next time!,
