Rhassoul clay is found only deep beneath the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and has been used for over 1,400 years as a natural beauty treatment for skin and hair. It has a history of use with references going back to ancient Egypt and Rome although barely verifiable.
Rhassoul clay contains higher percentages of silica, magnesium, potassium, calcium and other trace minerals than most other clays. These minerals make the clay highly detoxifying as they can actually exchange themselves for toxic compounds like metals in the skin. So the clay not only works to remove impurities from your skin-it also replaces them with nourishing trace minerals. The clay’s high level of ions exchange makes it ideal for toning and enriching the skin.
Rhassoul clay can be used in soap, skin conditioners, shampoos or mask for the face and body. It acts like a soap but leaves a sweet scent behind.
