Rhassoul (aka Moroccan Lava Clay) is a truly exquisite, spa quality clay which is unearthed from the ancient deposits of the fertile Atlas Mountains in Morocco. It is sun dried and untreated. When first mined, Rhassoul clay appears as a polished brown, soap-like clay, which is chunky in appearance and resembling rocks. After further refinement and micronization, this mineral rich clay becomes a smooth, almost silken earth which blends extremely well with water, making its application to the face and skin a smooth and delightful experience.
Benefits: Rhassoul is considered to contain higher percentages of silica and magnesium than other clays and due to its greater ability to swell with the addition of water, this clay achieves better results in skin treatment. Rhassoul Clay's most impressive properties in skin improvement are its capacity of absorption due to its high level of ion exchange. Studies have shown that it is reputed to reduce dryness and flakiness as well as improve skin clarity and elasticity. It is rich in magnesium, Silica, potassium and calcium.
Application: It can be used in soaps, shampoos, facial and body masks, as well as in skin conditioners. Due to its many therapeutic benefits such as rejuvenating, detoxing, and toning of the skin, this clay has been used for over 12 centuries by populations in North Africa, Southern Europe and the Middle East. Nowadays you will find it applied in many of the finest spas across the world.
Shelf life: Under proper storage conditions clays will store indefinitely.
