Moroccan Rhassoul Clay, sometimes referred to as Moroccan Ghassoul Clay, is naturally found and organically mined from ancient deposits deep within the Atlas Mountains in the northeastern region of Morocco. This extraordinary mineral-rich clay is extracted in large clods, then it gets washed, sun-dried and micronized into a smooth powder.
The word “Rhassoul” derives from the Arabic word for washing, “Rhassala.” Reknowned for its unmatched ability to absorb impurities from the skin and hair and give the skin and hair highly beneficial minerals, Moroccan Rhassoul Clay a must-have product. Moroccan Rhassoul Clay is an essential part of the Moroccan Hammam treatment and has been for more than fourteen centuries. As the second step of the hammam treatment, Moroccan Rhassoul Clay is traditionally preceded by theMoroccan Savon Noir and followed by 100% Organic Argan Oil.
Moroccan Rhassoul Clay can be used as detoxifying cleanser, skin conditioner, shampoo, and facial and body mask. It has a number of outstanding benefits that surpass those of other clays because it contains the highest content of silica, magnesium, potassium and calcium, and because of its extraordinary smectic qualities (absorption ability).
