Certain beauty products including shampoos and skin products (not forgetting certain foods) contain sulphur or its derivatives. Always check the list of ingredients and look for names similar to sulfur dioxide, sodium sulfite, sodium bisulfite, potassium bisulfite, sodium metabisulfite and potassium metabisulfite.
