REEF Oil's Rhassual Clay is a truly exquisite spa quality clay from ancient deposits unearthed from the fertile Atlas Mountains in Morocco. This mineral rich clay blends extremely well with water making its application to the face and skin a smooth and delightful experience. This clay has been used for over 1400 years as a soap, shampoo, and skin conditioner, and the finest spas across the world currently utilize it for its therapeutic benefits.
This clay is quarry mined from deep beneath the Atlas Mountains in Eastern Morocco. It is sun dried and untreated. When first mined, Rhassoul clay appears as a polished brown, soap-like clay, which is chunky in appearance and resembling rocks. After further refinement and micronization, the end product is a smooth almost silken earth.
Because Rhassoul can be used for a variety of professional applications, it is an invaluable enhancement for spa treatments and for personal use. As Rhassoul is considered to contain higher percentages of silica and magnesium than other clays, it is thought to be far more effective. Also, due to its greater ability to swell with the addition of water, Rhassoul achieves better results in skin treatment.
Clinical studies have shown that a single use of Moroccan Rhassoul:
- Improves skin texture (106%)
- Reduces dryness (79%)
- Reduces flakiness (41%)
- Improves skin elasticity / firmness (24%)
- Improves skin clarity (68%)
