Natural Soap Ghassoul (Natural Mineral Clay) 100g
Rhassoul or ghassoul (Moroccan Arabic: الغاسول, translit. l-ġasul) is a cosmetic made of natural mineral clay mined from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. It is combined with water to clean the body and has been used by North African women for centuries to care for their skin and hair. Rhassoul contains silica, iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium, lithium, and trace elements.
The use of rhassoul dates back to the eighth century. Today, rhassoul is mainly used in Traditional Moroccan Hammams and in Turkish baths. Along with a glove, or "kessa", Rhassoul is used as a facial mask and poultice to the body. It is similar to a western style mud wrap. It is intended to soften the skin, reduce sebum secretion, regenerate the skin by removing dead cells, and rebalance the skin by tightening the pores.
