Personally, I have never tried out Rhassoul clay, I have thought of acquiring some and trying it out but I never quite got around to doing it. Instead I did a lot of reading and now I’m bringing you this info on the renowned clay. Here goes nothing from the stables of Amal Oils:
Moroccan Rhassoul Clay, sometimes referred to as Moroccan Ghassoul Clay, is naturally found and organically mined from ancient deposits deep within the Atlas Mountains in the northeastern region of Morocco. This extraordinary mineral-rich clay is extracted in large clods, then it gets washed, sun-dried and micronized into a smooth powder. The word “Rhassoul” derives from the Arabic word for washing, “Rhassala.” Renowned for its unmatched ability to absorb impurities from the skin and hair and give the skin and hair highly beneficial minerals, Moroccan Rhassoul Clay a must-have product.
Moroccan Rhassoul Clay can be used as detoxifying cleanser, skin conditioner, shampoo, and facial and body mask. It has a number of outstanding benefits that surpass those of other clays because it contains the highest content of silica, magnesium, potassium and calcium, and because of its extraordinary smectic qualities (absorption ability).
- Silica- 58%
- Aluminum- 2.47%
- Iron- 0.64%
- Sodium- 2.3%
- Magnesium- 25.2%
- Calcium- 2.34%
- Moisture- <8%
Studies have shown that Moroccan Rhassoul Clay reduces dryness, improves skin clarity and elasticity and has extractive abilities that remove impurities and unblock pores, even stubborn blackheads.
As a hair treatment, Moroccan Rhassoul Clay cleanses the hair, removing impurities, and leaves hair bouncy and voluminous. It is an invaluable enhancement for spa treatments and for personal use of Moroccan Rhassoul:
- Reduces dryness (79%)
- Reduces flakiness (41%)
- Improves skin clarity (68%)
- Improves skin elasticity/firmness (24%)
- Improves skin texture (106%)
- Removes surface oil and oil from inside and around comedones
- Removes dead skin layers, resulting in a general smoothing of the surface skin
Moroccan Rhassoul Clay is an extremely versatile product and can be mixed in various ways, so don’t be afraid to get creative. AH! Rhassoul will definitely be a staple in my stash, I have been eyeing it for a long time. It’s about time I got it. 😀
