Rhassoul means “the matter that washes” in Arabic, and has been used as a skin and hair cleanser for over 12 centuries.
Mined in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, this mineral-rich clay is unique for its multifunctional benefits: it improves skin elasticity and clarity and also hydrates.
This soap is also a gentle detoxifier and makes your skin soft and smooth and helps to reduce flaking.
It is rich in silica, magnesium and potassium.
Rhassoul clay, also known as Moroccan lava clay, is an ancient clay formed deep beneath the Atlas Mountains in eastern Morocco. With its ability to absorb oil and impurities from both skin and hair, rhassoul clay makes hair and skin incredibly clean, smooth, hydrated, clear, and feels fresh.
Rhassoul clay, very rich in trace elements, has extraordinary absorption properties which make it very effective for cleansing the skin. It helps reduce dryness, reduce flakiness, brighten skin, improve skin elasticity and improve skin texture. It removes dead skin cells, surface oil and oil from within and around clogged pores, resulting in an overall smoothing of the skin. Often used in masks, mud baths and clay baths, rhassoul is described as a balancing clay, perfect for all skin types as it attracts and lifts dirt, but does not strip the skin of precious natural oils.
In hair care, rhassoul was used in ancient Rome and Egypt to wash hair naturally. Rhassoul clay is the moisturizer and softener. It reduces dryness in the hair, while also removing impurities and product build-up. It stimulates the scalp, helps restore softness and shine to dull hair, and nourishes through the higher ratio of silica, magnesium, potassium, calcium, and other trace minerals.
