Rhassoul is a clay only collected in Morocco, from the underground galleries of the Atlas mountain range of North Africa. Meaning “washing" clay, Rhassoul is particularly rich in silica and magnesium.
The clay is traditionally used to prepare a soft and purifying cleansing masks for body, face and hair.
With its exceptional ability to absorb impurities without irritating the skin, Rhassoul is an essential part of hammam rituals.
Unlike shampoos and soaps, Rhassoul contains no surfactants and cleans solely by naturally pulling or attracting impurities and fats. Very soft, it does not remove the protective film on the skin and hair and does not irritate sebaceous glands.

SHOULD you choose to work directly with the flakes, start by pouring a small quantity of hot water over a few Rhassoul flakes ,let absorb for 2-3 minutes until the flakes soften, and mix with a spoon.

• Add small quantities of liquid at a time, until the paste has reached the consistency you wish for the type of application you have chosen.
• Add your other natural extracts and/or other active ingredients to your Rhassoul paste.
