Moroccan Lava Clay, Moroccan Rhassoul Clay (Ilite)
Rhassoul is a Moroccan soil from the Atlas Mountains. It has a high content of silica but also contains magnesium, aluminium, iron and calcium. When mixed with water it forms an intensive cleansing gel. It is often used as a replacement for tensides in hair and body wash and outperforms other earth products in its cleaning ability. It is ideal for the care of oily, blemished skin.
