The Golden Mud
For over a thousand years Rhassoul has been used as a natural cosmetic by the women of Morocco to cleanse, revitalise and rejuvenate their hair, skin and bodies. The use of Rhassoul originates from the indigenous Berber people of the Atlas mountains who used the natural clay of their land to maintain healthy clean skin, despite the harsh environmental conditions high in the mountains. Berber women are still to this day renowned throughout morocco for their stunning natural beauty, smooth youthful skin, and also their distinctive traditional fashion.
Rhassoul is mined from hard and brittle, mineral-rich clay deposits found only in the Middle Atlas mountain range. Its natural composition of silica, iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium and lithium provides many benefits to the entire body and is applied in clay form, directly to the hair, scalp, face or body.
When applied to the skin it instantly soothes the treated area and as the clay dries powerful anti-oxidants draw impurities out from deep within the skin’s pores, leaving the skin soft, smooth and silky in texture.
Treated areas see a dramatic reduction of inflammation and irritation, promoting the healing of ailments such as eczema and psoriasis. Direct application to the scalp offers an effective anti-dandruff treatment.
Rhassoul is naturally pH neutral and an excellent hair treatment, for dry, frizzy or damaged hair.
These high-quality rhassoul products come ready mixed and are applied directly from the jar without the somewhat messy need to rehydrate the clay first.
The following product is especially great for hair and contains many natural oils and vitamins formulated to promote stronger healthier hair growth.
