The Sulphur in Volcanic Ash is a proven, safe, age-old remedy that has been used to treat every conceivable skin irritation and infection. Sulphur is also FDA-approved for the treatment of acne.
Health benefits of Volcanic Ash on skin have been known for centuries by the native Melanesians - especially those that live near any of the nine (9) active volcanoes of Vanuatu. The benefits of Volcanic Ash on the skin extend to the treatment of a wide variety of infections due to its anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-yeast and overall disinfectant qualities. Volcanic Ash is high in Sulphur, an active Mineral ingredient which not only helps the body to resist bacteria but actually destroy it.
Sulphur exists in your haemoglobin and connective body tissue: 
- to disinfect the blood
- stimulate bile secretion
- aid the oxidation reactions in the body
- protect the protoplasm of cells
- synthesis of Collagen (one of the main proteins needed for the structural integrity of your skin).

Sulphur 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 the amino acids glutathione, taurine, cysteine, and methionine.
Volcanic Ash is truly Mother Nature's natural skin purifier. Not only is it rich in minerals, its exfoliating properties mean that it is ideal for removing the dead outer layers of skin as it cleanses the skin in the process. Volcanic ash particles are finely crushed and may be as small as 1/1,000th of an inch (or 0.025mm). The ash does not dissolve in water and so makes for a fantastic, mild exfoliant. We also use volcanic ash in our foot scrubs and body scrubs because of its purification and cleaning qualities.
