Ghassoul clay, 200g
Ghassoul (also known as rhassoul) is a spa-quality natural and organic clay mined deep beneath the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.
Due to its unique composition of micro-molecules, this clay has unparalleled cleansing properties. When applied to the skin it powerfully absorbs impurities, toxins and excess oils whilst preserving the fine lipids that form the sensitive and protective layer of the skin.
Ghassoul clay has been used by the Moroccan women for over 1400 years and continues to be used to this day for its many therapeutic benefits. The word ghassoul or rhassoul is derived from Arabic and means, ‘to become washed/cleansed’.
- Fill a shallow bowl with a scoop or two of clay and slowly add hot water. Leave the mixture for a few minutes, without stirring.
- Gently stir the mixture, adding more water if necessary, until a smooth consistency is obtained.
- Spread the mixture over your face and body, avoiding the eye and lip area and leave for 5-10 minutes before rinsing off. Do not allow the clay to dry on the skin as the clay only ‘works’ when damp. If you feel the clay drying, dab a few drops of water/rose water to the area.
- For a quick facial cleanse, simply put a little dry clay powder into the palm of your hand and mix with warm water. Spread over the face and rinse immediately with water. Finish with a few splashes of cold water to help close the pores.
