moroccan red clay
binomial name: red kaolinite
a rich shade of vermilion with a fine, powdered texture, moroccan red clay or “rhassoul clay” is a rare find and one of the purest clays on earth. mined beneath the atlas mountains of morocco, it’s played a crucial part in bathing and beauty rituals for the past 1400 years. a fixture in the bathhouses of turkey and morocco, it cleanses on all levels: in soap, shampoo and skin treatments.
benefit: clay is able to discriminate between what is healthy and what is toxic. it absorbs only what needs to be removed from the skin, creating a healthy balance and replenishing minerals like silica and magnesium. as a gentle astringent, it polishes away dead-skin cells and soaks up surface oil to clarify skin texture, making it a great addition to facial masks and body wraps.
