The Benefits of Rhassoul Clay for Your Face, Hair and Body

Women have been searching for the fountain of youth since the beginning of mankind. Unfortunately, we cannot stop ageing, but there are ways to slow this process and stay young until late in life. Consider adding Rhassoul Clay to your skincare routine to help detox and purify the skin.

This natural clay originates in Morocco, and it has been used for thousands of years as a beauty elixir by Moroccan women. Also known as red Moroccan clay, red clay, or Ghassoul clay, it does wonders for the skin and hair.

Brief History of Rhassoul Clay

View of Atlas Mountains from Medina

Rhassoul clay has been around for over 1400 years. It was formed under the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. Its name means “the mountain of the washer” in Arabic. Women living in those areas have long prized its protective, regenerative, and healing properties.

 

After mining, the clay is poured on the ground for drying. This exposes it to the sun and desert breezes, which enhance its healing power. Once dried, it's refined and micronized. It can be used as a pure clay mask, body wrap, shampoo, skin conditioner, or soap.

 

Over the centuries, this natural clay made its way in Asia, Europe, and other parts of the world. The Ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians used it to cleanse their skin and slow down ageing.

 

Today, Rhassoul Clay has emerged in the modern world as a powerful, toxin-free skincare product and hair treatment as well as a natural remedy for various ailments, although the women of Morocco have used it forever!

 

For centuries, Moroccan women have used Rhassoul Clay to massage, exfoliate, and moisturise their bodies. They apply it to the skin and hair or use it as part of Hammam rituals. This natural beauty product is so prized by the Moroccan people that it's still part of the gifts made to the bride by the groom's family.

 

Rhassoul Clay - The Ancient Secret to Youthful Skin and Healthy Hair

Compared to other clays, Rhassoul contains larger amounts of calcium, potassium, magnesium, silica, and trace minerals. It also boasts a higher absorption rate, which makes it ideal for detox and cleansing. Its active compounds are quickly absorbed into the skin, leaving it soft and smooth.

 

Research shows that a single use of Rhassoul clay can improve skin firmness by a whopping 24 per cent and skin clarity by 68 per cent. This toxin-free skincare product reduces dryness by as much as 79 per cent and flakiness by 41 per cent. When applied to the skin, it removes dead cells and excess sebum, which are major contributors to acne.

This all-natural clay is a healthier alternative to soap, facial scrubs, and hair care products. Due to its fine texture, it's an excellent pure clay mask and matches all skin types. On top of that, it's free of additives, preservatives, phthalates, and other chemicals found in traditional skin and hair products.

Rhassoul is one of the key ingredients in Indagare Beauty's Award-winning Atonement Superfood Face Masque. This stunning clay mask won Finalist at the Global Beauty Shortlist Awards in 2019.

 

 

 

How to Use Rhassoul Clay as a Face Mask:

Ready to give it a try? To make your own pure clay mask, mix the following ingredients:

 

  • 2 tablespoons of warm water
  • 1 tablespoon of Rhassoul clay
  • 2 drops of argan oil (optional - for dry skin)

 

Pour the ingredients into a bowl and mix them together using a wooden spoon. Do not use a metal spoon as it can absorb the minerals in the clay. Apply the mixture on your face and body, and rinse after 10 minutes.

 

How to use Rhassoul Clay for Healthy, Glossy Hair:

As a Natural Shampoo

For a shampoo, mix up a runny paste - around three tablespoons of Rhassoul clay and enough water to ensure it is runny enough to apply the mixture to the roots of wet hair and massage well. Wait a few minutes and then rinse your hair with warm water. Don't leave it on more than a ten minutes as you don't want to dry hair out. 

 Detox Hair Mask

  • Three tablespoons Rhassoul clay
  • One tablespoon of Indagare's Organic Hair Renewal Oil, packed with beautiful hair-loving botanical oils and essential oils for scalp and hair health
  • Five to six tablespoons of water
  • Place all the ingredients minus the water in a bowl. Next, slowly add water and stir, add water and stir and keep doing until you get a smooth paste - more runny than sticky, so it is easy to apply.


You can apply it on dry hair, but I prefer to use in damp hair. Apply section by section all over your scalp and hair, and let it sit for 10-15 minutes, so it has a chance to weave its magic. Rinse it out with water and then shampoo as usual. Your hair will look and feel super healthy and glossy.
