During winter months, many turn to an all natural remedy, Colloidal Silver, to ward off winter colds, but have you heard of Colloidal Sulfur? The use of Colloidal Sulfur can be traced back to the times of Ancient Egypt, Greece, and Chinese and Indian Civilizations to treat known skin conditions.

When applied to the scalp, Colloidal Sulfur is known to combat the leading causes of dandruff, so it’s no surprise that Colloidal Sulfur plays a role in protecting the scalp and is used as an ingredient in LOCKrx products, specifically LOCKrx Growth Factor 3X
