Moroccan Rhassoul Clay
The word ‘rhassoul’ is derived from the Arabic word ‘rhassala’ which means washing. Moroccan women have used it for natural body care for over 1,400 years. Research confirms the remarkable properties of this mineral-rich clay, it reduces dryness, removes impurities, unblocks pores, improves skin clarity and elasticity resulting in a general smoothing of the skin.
Moroccan rhassoul clay can be used as a daily cleanser instead of soap and as a restorative hair treatment. It is a superb natural shampoo.
One of the clay’s most impressive properties is the absorption of harmful substances and detoxification. This is due to a high rate of ion exchange. Rhassoul also has natural antimicrobial properties, making it an effective ingredient for external detoxification. Clinical testing has shown rhassoul to be effective in improving skin elasticity, unclogging pores, and removing dead skin cells and excess surface oils. It can also be used as a scalp treatment to absorb oil, dirt, sebum and cleanse and clarify hair.

Ancient cultures have used Moroccan rhassoul clay for centuries to cleanse their hair, face and body. The root word for rhassoul literally means “washing”! Today, rhassoul is used as a base in many spa-quality masks and washes.
When mixed with a liquid such as water that is massaged into the hair or skin, rhassoul gently exfoliates with a fine grit. It binds to dirt, oils and other impurities and washes them away when you rinse.
You’ll benefit from washing your hair because, unlike shampoo, rhassoul does not contain detergents, surfactants, parabens, sulfates, preservatives or thickeners. Also, shampoo can sometimes clean too well by stripping away sebum, natural protective oils made by the skin.
Conditioning With Rhassoul Clay
To create a 2-in-1 wash and conditioning mix for hair, combine rhassoul clay with liquid and a natural oil and/or butter, such as:
For very dry, chemically treated or damaged hair:
• Natural, unrefined shea butter
• Raw cocoa butter
• Virgin coconut oil
• Castor oil
• Sunflower oil
• Argan oil
For light conditioning
• Jojoba oil
• Coconut oil
• Extra virgin olive oil
• Avocado oil
Mix the desired quantity of rhassoul in a bowl (not metal) add warm spring/filtered water until it forms a paste, apply to face, hair or body. Leave between 5 and 10 minutes before rinsing.
Afterward, it is recommended to use a good quality oil of your choice to moisturize the skin.
