From under the Atlas mountains in Eastern Morocco, Rhassoul clay has a lot of trace minerals which are, higher amounts of Silica, Magnesium, Iron, Calcium, Potassium and Sodium, way more than any other known clay. These minerals detoxify the skin by exchanging themselves for a variety of compounds including toxic metals and oils that create problem skin. In addition, the Rhassoul clay swells with the addition of water which helps it to absorb impurities thereby effectively cleansing and detoxifying.
For The Hair
Silica is particularly known as the beauty mineral, which makes it a main ingredient in many skin, hair, and nail formulas. The supply of Silica in our bodies becomes depleted as we age and this results in wrinkled and dry skin, lackluster hair and brittle nails and bones. This healing clay replenishes these minerals into the skin and hair to combat ageing and hair loss. Silica has been known to help reduce hair loss and aid in growth, by regenerating cell growth and strengthening the connective tissue of the hair, skin and nails. Rhassoul clay is made up of more than 50% of silica. As if that is not enough, rhassoul clay has 25% magnesium which is also known to decrease hair loss.
For The Skin
Two different research laboratories in the United States have conducted clinical studies to evaluate Rhassoul for skin conditions. The results are staggering.
Just a single application created an improvement in skin quality:
* Reduces dryness (79%)
* Reduces flakiness (41%)
* Improves skin clarity (68%)
* Improves skin elasticity / firmness (24%)
* Improves skin texture (106%)
* Removes surface oil and oil from the inside
* Removes dead skin layers, resulting in a general smoothing of the surface skin
