This exquisite spa quality clay is unearthed from the fertile Atlas Mountains in Eastern Morocco, then it's sundried and refined to a silken texture your skin will love. It is formed by a natural combination of volcanic activity and geothermal changes. This clay has been used for 1,400 years as a soap, shampoo and skin conditioner. Today it's still used by some of the finest spas across the globe for its wonderful benefits. Clinical studies and testing on Rhassoul found that it can increase skin elasticity, even skin tone, reduce blemishes and blackheads, and reduce skin dryness or flakiness. Rhassoul is considered to contain higher percentages of silica and magnesium than other clays and is thought to be far more effective. Due to its greater ability to swell with the addition of water, Rhassoul achieves better results in skin treatment. In fact, this clay can be used daily instead of soap for a gentle way to cleanse that won't strip skin of beneficial oils. Because of its absorption qualities, it's effective for clearing occasional blemishes. This clay can be used for normal to oily skin.
