Sulfur and Salicylic ointment - History
Ointments with Sulfur and Salicylic Acid were a cornerstone of dermatological-topical therapy throughout the last century. Many skin conditions including psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, cradle cap, acne and fungal infections, were treated with this type of ointments. The formulation was prepared directly by a pharmacist mixing the sulfur and salicylic acid with Vaseline and lanolin. Following a master recipe, the dermatologist would change the concentrations of the two active ingredients as needed based on the condition to treat.
With the introduction of modern drugs such as cortisone and antifungals, the Sulfur Salicylic Ointment has gone into disuse.
From the Sulfur Salicylic ointment of the past to the Sulfur/Salicylic cream of today
But sometimes things need improvements! The ointment was greasy, and the Vaseline and/or Lanolin are occlusive substances that do not let the skin breath, so both patients and dermatologists were not satisfied. Sulfur and Salicylic acid are both natural ingredients and very effective for many skin conditions and dermatologists prefer these ingredients and avoid the side effects of steroidal drugs, hence the need for a better performing formulation.
The patients needed a cream that does not leave greasy residue and the dermatologists needed a cream with natural ingredients, no side effects for long term use and performing exceptionally while allowing skin breathability, a vital function for a healthy skin.
From these requests Most Crema 2S was formulated. Sulfur and Salicylic Acid are mixed with a vanishing base cream that is well absorbed by the skin without leaving behind greasy residues and being free of Vaseline or other occlusive ingredients allows the skin to breathe.
