The renowned ‘English Spa’ of Harrogate
Ever wondered why the small town of Harrogate was given the name the ‘English Spa’? The story dates back to the 16th century, when 88 mineral-rich natural springs were discovered in the area that were found to be abundant in sulphur, iron and salt. These are great for the skin, which is why since the discovery the natural spring waters have been a focus for local elusive spa and beauty treatments, and is how it received the name of the ‘English Spa’. As a result, ever since then, visitors have flocked from all over the world to experience the springs for themselves and is why the quaint little town in North Yorkshire has become so popular.
Skincare with sulphur
Do you know how important sulphur is to the health of our body, and in particular our skin? Sulphur is one of the essential minerals that our body needs, and one of it’s key roles is in the production of the protein collagen. This acts as a sort of building-block for the cells, so it is vital to keeping the skin healthy, strong and elastic. Sulphur, therefore, is a crucial mineral for maintaining healthy skin and as a result is often known as ‘nature’s beauty mineral’ and is widely featured in high-end natural skincare products.

Directions for use
As the products within this combo pack are designed to easily fit into your skincare routine, there is no specific or set order to use them, so it is up to you and your specific skincare needs. If you are unsure, you can follow our suggestion of beginning with the Sulphur Original Soap to thoroughly cleanse the skin. Follow with the Sulphur Body Wash if you are showering, or the Sulphur Hand and Face Wash if you are looking to just focus on the face. This wash can also be great to keep your hands fresh and clean throughout the day. Finally, when your skin is dry, complete with the Sulphur Cream to help hydrate, nourish and protect for the day ahead. This routine can be for the morning or evening or whenever you prefer to wash. Here is some more information on how to use each specific product:
Sulphur Original Soap: Apply to wet skin and massage to create a lather. To get the most out of this soap, we recommend leaving the lather on the skin for at least a few minutes before rinsing.
Sulphur Body Wash & Sulphur Hand and Face Wash: To use both of these washes, simply apply to wet skin and massage into a lather. Rinse with water and make sure to avoid contact with the mouth and eyes.
Sulphur Cream: Ensuring the skin is washed and dried, apply to the desired area and gently massage in until it is absorbed. Leave it for a couple of minutes to make sure it is fully absorbed.
