Rhassoul clay is rich in magnesium, silica, potassium, and calcium, which all help to nourish your skin. The molecular structure of Rhassoul clay gives it a unique ability to absorb excess dirt and oil, as well as extract impurities from the skin. (That’s why Rhassoul clay used as a face wash or face mask is so effective!)
You might not think of a mud as a particularly skin-softening ingredient, but Rhassoul clay has even been shown to improve dry skin by regulating your skin’s natural oil balance! Additionally, those who use Rhassoul clay as a mask have reported improvement in the cleanliness and overall look in the texture of their skin.
Amazingly, many people also use Rhassoul clay in their hair as a deeply nourishing shampoo. It is especially effective for oily hair, as it de-greases the scalp yet does not disrupt the skin or hair shaft. Using Rhassoul clay paste instead of commercial shampoo could prove ideal for someone trying to limit their exposure to some of the the toxic chemicals found in most commercial shampoos.
