A BIT MORE ABOUT RHASSOUL CLAY
–Rhassoul Clay is a high-quality soothing clay for external use that stores indefinitely if kept dry. It is sourced from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and is often used in spas for skin and hair. It is also called Ghassoul Clay, Red Clay, and Red Moroccan Clay, and it can only be found under this specific mountain range in Morocco. It is formed by a natural combination of volcanic activity and geothermal changes.
This untreated and naturally dried clay has a silk-like feel and can help even out skin tone and reduce blemishes. It has the unique ability to both nourish skin and reduce breakouts and many people use it daily as a natural soap and shampoo. In fact, 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 clay is effective in hair growth in that it is able to clean hair without removing all of its protective sebum. Sebum is an oily matter produced by sebaceous glands. Sebum is important in that it lubricates the scalp preventing formation of dry flakes on the scalp. Dry flakes on the scalp cause inflammation and itching. When the scalp is inflamed, it cannot support growth of strong long hair. Therefore, Ghassoul clay, through its ability to clean hair without depleting sebum from the hair and scalp, makes hair growth possible.
