Harrogate’s famous ‘English Spa’
First discovered back in the 16th century, the small town of Harrogate in North Yorkshire was given the name ‘The English Spa’ when 88 mineral springs were found which are said to be naturally rich in minerals such as sulphur, iron and salt. This makes them excellent for the skin and is why many natural spa and beauty treatments were created revolving around the magnificent natural springs. From this discovery and the advent of natural beauty treatments, it then lead to many wealthy visitors travelling to the town to discover the mineral waters benefits for themselves, and for this reason the town is still renowned all over the world for its waters and exclusive spa treatments.
Sulphur and the skin
Sulphur is an essential mineral in our bodies that helps with the production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that acts as a ‘building-block’ for the cells, and is found most densely in the hair, nails and skin. It is important for these as it helps to keep the cells healthy and strong, making sulphur a very useful mineral, particularly for the skin. Because of this, sulphur has been called ‘nature’s beauty mineral’ and has been used in a wide variety of skincare products. Sulphur is also a key mineral found in Harrogate's natural springs, which are very popular for their skincare benefits and beauty treatments.

How to use
As the products in this combo pack are designed to easily fit into any skincare routine, there is no set order to using them and it depends on your skin care needs and routine. However, here are our suggestions for use:
We recommend starting in the morning with the soap to begin cleansing the skin. The soap is also ideal for more targeted areas so can be used all over or just where needed. We then suggest following this up with the body wash if you are showering the full body or the hand and face wash if you are just looking to clean the face. The hand and face wash can also be ideal to use throughout the day to keep the hands clean and fresh. Then finally, after your skin is washed and is dry, we suggest to conclude with the cream to help keep your skin nourished, hydrated and protected for the day ahead. This routine can also be applied in the evening or whenever you need to wash and cleanse the skin. Each product in this combo pack is easy to use and here is some advice for use of each one:
Sulphur Soap - The Original: Simply apply to wet skin and massage to create a lather. To make the most of the soap, we suggest to leave the lather on the skin for a few minutes before rinsing with warm water.
Sulphur Body Wash & Sulphur Hand and Face Wash: To use the washes, apply to wet skin, massage into a lather then rinse with warm water. Avoid contact with the eyes and mouth.
Sulphur Cream: For the cream, once the skin has been washed and dried, apply to the desired area and massage into the skin. Leave it a few minutes to fully absorb before continuing with any other products.
