Q: Is Ghassoul Clay different from Moroccan Red Clay?
A: Yes, Ghassoul or Rhassoul Clay has a brownish tint while Moroccan Red Clay has a more reddish color. These two clays are commonly considered to be the same but that is not the case, Moroccan red clay has a higher iron oxide content, hence its red tint and their benefits are also different.
Q: Can I use Ghassoul clay instead of my cleanser?
A: Yes, you can use the clay on a daily basis as a substitute for your facial soap as it gently cleanses your skin without being overly harsh or stripping it from the "good" oils. Ghassoul clay has a high negative charge which helps draw out all your skin's impurities, excess oil and blackheads. For this reason it can be used as a face wash.
Q: How can I make a facial mask using the Ghassoul Clay Powder
A: All clay masks need to be prepared using non-metal instruments as metal can affect the benefits of the clay. You can use any wood or glass instruments to make your clay mask.
The first step is to use your non metal spoon to place about 2 teaspoons of clay powder into a bowl and add lukewarm water to it. It is better to add the water slowly and not all at once in order to ensure that the mixture is not too liquid.
The clay should absorb the water and as you mix it should create a paste with a homogeneous consistency. You can then apply the clay mask on your face using a brush or your fingers and leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes.
Once the clay starts to dry out and your skin feels tight you can rinse it off with warm water and pat your skin dry.
Q: Can I add more ingredients to the clay mask?
A: Absolutely, we actually recommend that you add Rose Water to your clay mixture to add anti inflammatory benefits, or Argan Oil for a more hydrating finish.
Q: Can I use the Ghassoul Clay Mask if I have sensitive skin?
A: Yes, Ghassoul clay is all skin types d is especially recom for sensitive skin. Some clays tend to be harsh and overly drying for certain skin types but Ghassoul clay is very gentle which makes it ideal for sensitive skin.
Q: What makes Ghassoul clay different from other clays such as bentonite, Kaolin or Green clay?
A: Ghassoul clay is most recommended for skin detoxification and rejuvenation. It is uniquely able to draw out impurities, dirt and toxins that lie beneath the skin surface. It is a lot more gently than other clays and helps treat different skin concerns including blackheads and acne. The little particles help provide a gently exfoliation which leads to a more even skin complexion. It is also nourishing for the skin and helps draw out excess oil without stripping beneficial oils.
Ghassoul clay is 100% natural and contains no parabens, fragrances or additives.
Q: Can I store pre-mixed Rhassoul Clay?
A: Yes, you can always make extra clay paste for later use. Make sure to store it in an air-tight container and cover it with a little water and put a piece of plastic kitchen wrap to slow down surface drying.
Q: Can I use Rhassoul Clay for Hair?
A: Many people are unaware of this Rhassoul Clay benefit, but it can be used as a natural hair shampoo to treat scalp inflammation and promote healthier hair growth. You can prepare a Rhassoul clay shampoo using the same method but making the paste a little more liquid by adding more water to the mixture. Try adding some acidic ingredient such as Apple Cider Vinegar or Aloe Vera Gel which helps neutralise the alkaline clone and promote shinier hair.
Q: Can Rhassoul clay be used on the body?
A: Yes, you can use the clay as a full body mask for an exfoliating and detoxifying effect. However, if you have any skin problems such as Eczema or Psoriasis, we recommend you always do a patch test first before applying the clay body mask.
