About Rhassoul…aka Ghassoul

So what is Moroccan rhassoul clay ? What is Rhassoul : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhassoul

Moroccan rhassoul clay as we now know it was originally called “ghassoul”. The word Ghassoul comes from the Arabic language. It apparentIy derives from the Arabic verb “Rassala”, which means “washing”, and means literally “to be washed”. Ghassoul is now commonly known as rhassoul

Rhassool has been used for over 12 centuries by North African and Middle Eastern populations. It is an ancient clay extracted from the underground rock layers of the Moulouya Valley in the mid-Atlas mountains of Morocco. It is mainly made up of stevensite, a magnesium silicate-based clay.

See http://www.minsocam.org/ammin/am44/am44_342.pdf for more detailed information about the nature and origin of rhassoul /ghassoul clay.

Ghassoul is rich in Magnesium, Calcium, Silicon, Iron, Potassium, and Sodium. It is able to absorb more than one a half times its own weight in water and it releases all of its minerals into the mud that forms. It is renowned for its skin healing properties and considered a natural and valuable source of anti aging minerals. These minerals detoxify and effectively extract pollutants from scalp, hair, and skin.

Clinical studies have shown that rhassoul reduces dryness and flakiness, improves skin clarity and elasticity, removes surface oil and helps to unblock clogged pores, and removes dead skin, resulting in smoother skin.

Add floral water or any pure water to the clay slabs, let it sit ten minutes, then stir into a smooth mud. use the mud to cleanse face, skin and hair. it lathers up very gently and leaves skin and hair feeling soft, nourished and gently moisturised.
