The Road to Rhassoul
Composition and Questions
Rich in minerals
Rich in minerals (iron, sodium, zinc and magnesium) and silica, yet low in aluminium oxide and calcium oxide, Rhassoul widely considered to be the ideal clay for cosmetic purposes:
Power of absorbtion Power of adsorption Montmorillonite clay * *** Illite clay *** * Kaolinite clay * *** Attapulgite clay *** * Rhassoul *** ***
Isn’t it a bit messy?
On the contrary, Rhassoul clay smoothes over the skin like cool, chocolate mousse and, unlike many masks, rinses off extremely easily with no flannel rubbing or unsightly patches remaining!
I’ve never made my own beauty products before!
Rhassoul is an excellent place to start! Simply mix with water and leave to stand for 10 mins or so before applying. Will keep for up to a week and can also be used to treat everyday bumps, bruises and burns.
Won’t it block up my pipes?
No, in the quantities used for masks and scrubs, the absorbent and detergent properties of Rhassoul mean that as it washes away down the plughole, it will actually sanitize your plumbing and neutralize odours. For a full on mud bath, however, we would not recommend using your regular tub, but rather a large, stand-alone container reserved for that purpose!
