There's is apparently sulphur as listed in the list of ingredients but I'm happy to say you can't smell the sulphur. Instead, it smells like a male perfume, I don't know how to explain this smell but there is a strong fragrance, pretty okay-ish/manly. The gel is white, non-greasy and dries clear when applied on skin. It feel fresh on the skin and does not sting your skin. As for the effectiveness of this cream, I cannot say anything yet. I'll update later. I feel that maybe it is working but I don't know for I use this together with Forever Living Aloe Vera Soothing Gel.
