moroccan rhassoul clay


Rhassoul or Ghassoul clay is a natural mineral clay mined in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco since the eighth century.

Our Rhassoul clay is superfine for a luxurious experience and making it ideal for facial treatments.

It is also used in Turkish baths and high-end Spas where it is revered for its cleansing, nourishing, exfoliating and rejuvenating properties. It can also be used as detoxifying cleanser, skin conditioner, shampoo and facial and body mask.

It can also help to soften the skin, reduce sebum secretion, regenerate the skin by removing dead cells and rebalance the skin by tightening the pores.

Ghassoul comes from the Arabic word ghassala, meaning to wash. When moistened with water, or floral water, the feel on the skin is smooth and almost lubricating whilst also exfoliating and drawing. Almost as cleansing as soap itself, it's the perfect way to cleanse the face, body, or even hair, without soap or chemical surfactants.

 One of the most mineral-rich clays, it is nutrient dense and comprises of minerals such as Silica, Magnesium, Calcium, etc. Rhassoul clay is highly esteemed around the world.

It has a high absorption ratio and is known to help tone the skin and improve resilience.

Highly efficient at absorbing excess oils from the skin and scalp.
