Rhassoul is renowned for its outstanding benefits that surpass those of other clays because it contains the highest content of silica, magnesium, potassium and calcium, and due to its extraordinary smectic qualities (absorption ability). It can be used as a detoxifying cleanser, skin conditioner, shampoo, and facial or body mask. A non abrasive exfoliant, it acts like a magnet withdrawing all the toxins from the skin and replacing with highly beneficial minerals.
No Parabens, No artificial chemicals

Ingredients: Organic Rhassoul Clay (Moroccan lava clay)
For a face mask: Using a non-metallic bowl and spoon, mix a teaspoon of Rhassoul Clay with water to make a smooth paste. Apply onto the face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Leave on until the skin starts to tingle (5-10 minutes depending upon skin type) and wash off with warm water. Add a few drops of Argan Oil or Rose Oil, both if you want a special treat. This can be used as a 'quick' mask leaving it on for just five minutes on the skin, or if you have time, put it on your face and leave the mask on for 20 minutes.
As a chemical-free shampoo: For short/medium length hair, mix 40gr with approximately 70ml water, then apply to the hair. Once in the shower, start gradually adding water as you massage the emulsion over the head and hair. Keep adding water till the hair is free of clay. Towel dry then comb through. There is no need to apply conditioner as the hair is conditioned by the clay.
As a chemical-free soap: keep a tub of mixed clay in the bathroom and spread a small amount spread over the skin (face or body) then rinse off with warm water. Refreshes, invigorates and conditions.
For those with very sensitive skin, try the mask for just a minute until the skin gets accustomed to the clay.
NOTE: Exercise caution if hair is chemically treated; patch test before applying to the whole head; chemicals will open the hair follicles and such treated hair may, but rarely, respond to this product in unanticipated ways.
