What is Rhassoul Clay?
Rhassoul clay is a natural clay mined in the Atlas Mountains of North Africa. It has been mined since the 8th century and is super rich in many minerals including silica, iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium, lithium and trace elements.
- it is negatively charged so it easily binds to positively charged toxins;
- it swells when added to water making it highly absorbent;
- and it is a fine silk-like powder.
However, rhassoul clay is unique from other clays in that it is the only clay composed of 100% minerals and trace elements. It boasts a higher mineral content including silica, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and other trace minerals so this makes it extremely beneficial for remineralizing and conditioning.
