Moroccan lava mud or rhassoul is mined from very deep deposits in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. It has been used for centuries for body and hair cleansing.
Rhassoul is very rich in trace minerals such as magnesium, calcium, iron, potassium, sodium and silica. It is a gentle exfoliant and a great cleansing clay.
It is also wonderful to use in hair treatments for remineralising and cleansing. We use it in our shampoo bar for this reason.
To use blend 1/2 to full teaspoon of clay to any fluid of your choice. Mix to a paste then apply to your face and neck. Leave it to dry for up to ten minutes then remove with a warm washer. Rinse with water, pat dry and apply your favorite moisteriser.
