Purifying, clarifying and softening
Native to Morocco, where it is extracted in a unique quarry on the edge of the Middle Atlas, about 200 km from the city of Fez, Rhassoul has been used for several centuries by oriental women to care for and gently cleanse their hair and skin. It was already known in the Middle Ages, of trade throughout the Orient.
The word « Rhassoul » in Arabic means " to wash ", because this clay soil is saponiferous, that is to say that it contains a large amount of natural foaming saponins. Its washing action is totally different from that of a shampoo or soap. Indeed, instead of chemically modifying the surface tension of water (= surfactant), the washing action of Rhassoul is purely physical.
Among all dermatological clays, Rhassoul is the one with the lowest content of aluminum oxide and calcium oxide. This unique feature allows it to be used as a mask for the eye area.
Rhassoul is indicated for all types of skin: oily, dry, irritated, normal, sensitive, reactive, etc. It cleanses the skin deeply, without attacking it. It eliminates all impurities especially blackheads due to sebum. Rhassoul emulsifies naturally with water, it absorbs impurities and excess sebum without attacking the protective lipid film of the skin.
Rhassoul is also indicated for dry and devitalized hair, dandruff and scalp irritations. It does not attack the protective layer of the hair. Known for centuries for its cleansing and purifying properties, this clay will also delight oily scalps for which it absorbs sebum and cleanses the hair gently, without damaging it. The hair regains shine, suppleness and tone.
