Rhassoul Clay

Used by the finest spas around the world, Rhassoul Clay, also known as Moroccan Lava Clay and Ghassoul Clay, is an ancient clay that is mined from deep below the Atlas Mountains of Morocco and is then milled into a super-fine powder.

Although Rhassoul Clay is not as widely available because it is difficult to obtain from the deep clay beds, it has been used for centuries by the ancient people of Rome and Egypt.

The rich mineral composition of Rhassoul Clay includes Silica, Magnesium and Calcium. The clay helps draw out impurities while it gently exfoliates the skin.

Natural Sourcing Rhassoul Clay is carefully sourced and packaged to maintain the purity and and beneficial properties of this highly nutritive clay.


Uses:

Rhassoul Clay rejuvenates and helps balance skin tone while it exfoliates and helps absorb and remove oil, dirt and debris. It promotes glowing skin that looks smoother, softer and healthier.

When mixed with water, Rhassoul Clay achieves a smooth, desirable texture. It is a highly absorbent, cleansing clay that can be used in facials, scrubs, body wraps, masks, soaps and deodorizing foot and body powders. Rhassoul Clay can also be used in the formulation of hair pastes and other hair care products that help to naturally cleanse the hair and scalp.
