organic rhassoul clay.
* all Moroccan Natural ingredients are organic or wildcrafted
Rhassoul is renowned for its outstanding benefits that surpass those of other clays because it contains the highest content of silica, magnesium, potassium and calcium, and due of its extraordinary smectic qualities (absorption ability). It can be used as detoxifying cleanser, skin conditioner, shampoo, and facial & body mask. A non abrasive exfoliant, it acts like a magnet withdrawing all the toxins from the skin and replacing with highly beneficial minerals.
Clinical studies have been carried out in two different research laboratories in the United States that evaluated Rhassoul use for skin conditions. The results of this single use Rhassoul study produced these findings: Reduces dryness; Reduces flakiness; Improves skin clarity; Improves skin elasticity / firmness; Improves skin texture; Removes surface oil and oil from inside and around comedones (blackheads / whiteheads); Removes dead skin layers, resulting in a general smoothing of the skins surface.
For a face mask: Using a non-metallic bowl and spoon, mix 20g Rhassoul Clay with water until it is like a stiff paste in consistency. Add a few drops of Argan Oil. This can be used as a ‘quick’ mask leaving it on the skin for just five minutes or if you have time, 20 minutes.
As a chemical-free shampoo: For short/medium length hair, mix 40g with approx 70ml water, then apply to the hair, once in the shower, start gradually adding water as you massage the emulsion over the head and hair. Keep adding water until the hair is free of clay. Towel dry then comb through, no conditioner is needed as the hair is conditioned by the clay.
As a chemical-free conditioner: For medium/long length hair, mix 10g with approx 70ml water, then apply to the hair after shampooing with African Liquid Black Soap. Rinse thoroughly to ensure the hair is free of clay. As a chemical-free soap: spread a small amount over wet skin (face or body) then rinse off.
A beautiful effective face mask that always leaves my skin looking clean, clear, smooth and calm. Quite possibly one of the most under-rated, high-performing products that we have here. It's always a joy to use in a weekly face mask, and face and body scrub. I do love creating a mini at-home hammam experience in my bathroom by exfoliating my body from top to toe with this clay.
