Rhassoul clay & its unrivaled cosmetic properties
Rhassoul clay contains many minerals like magnesium, iron, sodium, zinc, phosphorus, potassium and provitamins…
And these are the very same components that are known to have extremely beneficial properties for the skin.
Rich in mineral components, the Rhassoul clay has exceptional hydrophilic properties that capture and remove impurities.
These minerals are also the ones that provide the skin with an amazing sensation of silky-softness after each washing.
The particles of dust, dirt, dead cells and the fatty substances are easily washed away simply by rinsing.
This natural absorption ability of the Rhassoul clay, allows deep and gentle cleaning of skin and hair.
Furthermore, Rhassoul clay is the one with the lowest content of aluminum oxide and calcium oxide among all dermatological clays out there.
This unique feature allows its use even as an eye mask.
Additionally, the Rhassoul clay contains also silica, carbonates and clays of the illite group.
Mixed with warm water to obtain a smooth paste, the Rhassoul clay has detergent and degreasing properties thanks to its large ion exchange ability.
And unlike a lot of soaps and common shampoos nowadays, it contains no surfactant or any aggressive substances.
It acts only by absorption, and hence, does not damage the hair, skin, or mucous membranes.
Its ability to absorb water was proven to be vastly superior to other clays.
The Rhassoul clay can indeed absorb 1.66 times its weight of water.
This means that 15 g Rhassoul clay can absorb 25 ml of water, and this feature tremendously enhances its cleaning power while allowing proper hydration of the upper layers of the epidermis.
Naturally soapy, the Rhassoul clay washes the skin as well as hair and smoothly absorbs sebum excess.
Composed of very fine particles, it easily and quickly absorbs impurities and fat like a sponge.
That’s why Rhassoul clay is also effective against blackheads. In addition, thanks to its exfoliating effect, it tightens pores and brightens the complexion.
And thanks to its hypoallergenic, it is suitable for all skin types. Furthermore, because of its neutral pH, the Rhassoul clay is a natural source of sweetness that soothes the skin.
It is therefore particularly recommended for dry, sensitive or hypersensitive skin and even that of babies and children.
No wonder, the Rhassoul clay is renowned worldwide for its soothing, astringent, cleansing, absorbent, degreasing and decongestant properties.
