1. Detoxifies Skin

    Clays are known for their detoxifying effects on the body because of their high levels of ion exchange. Moroccan clay powder, Ghassoul is no exception! It draws out not only dirt and sebum but also toxins and wastes clogging the body.

    2. Exfoliates Dead Skin Cells

    Organic Moroccan clay powder has a mild abrasive texture which helps to scrub off dead skin cells when mixed in with water or oil to form a gritty paste. This will leave you skin feeling silky smooth and soft, and those flaky dead skin cells will be no more.

    3. Deeply Cleanses Pores & Purifies The Skin

    The molecular structure of ghassoul clay makes it very efficient at deeply cleansing out clogged pores. It helps draw out the impurities and pollution from deep within the pores of your skin. By creating a clay mask using water, oils such as organic Argan oil or even Moroccan Rose Water, and cleansing your face or body with the mask by rubbing gently into your skin, you help to purifying and deeply cleanse your skin by exfoliating.

     4. Reduces Excess Oil from Skin

    Organic Moroccan clay soaks up surface oils and sebum within the pores. By creating a paste, using ghassoul clay and water, you can help prevent pimples and blackheads from forming, as you rub the paste into your skin and let it sit for a moment to soak up all the oils and impurities.

    5. Softens Skin

    Ghassoul clay helps to soften rough skin, such as in your knees and elbows. It also helps with cracked heels and bumpy skin. Mix Moroccan clay powder in with water or oil, such as organic olive oil, coconut oil or even Moroccan Argan oil and form a paste. Use this paste by rubbing into tough stubborn areas, and leave in for about 15 minutes to work its magic before washing off.

    6. Soothes Skin Irritations

    Moroccan clay has skin soothing effects as well. It helps with inflammatory skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Make a soothing mask with ghassoul clay and coconut milk to get quick relief. Mix 2 tsp of ghassoul clay with enough coconut milk to make a paste. Apply onto skin where the irritation is, and leave to dry before gently washing off with warm water.

    7. Tightens Large Pores

    Organic Moroccan clay powder has natural astringent properties and because of this, ghassoul clay tightens skin and shrinks large pores. You can create a skin tightening mask by mixing 1 tbsp of ghassoul clay with 2 drops tea tree oil and enough water to form a paste. Apply onto skin and leave to dry before rinsing off with water.

    8. Fights Dandruff

    Ghassoul clay helps exfoliate dead skin cells as well as balance sebum secretion on the skin which helps fight off dandruff.

    9. Acts as a Natural Shampoo

    The saponin content in ghassoul clay makes it a good shampoo alternative. Saponins are natural cleansing agents found in certain plant material that forms a sort of lather when mixed with water. You can make your own clay shampoo by mixing ghassoul clay with enough rose water to form a paste. You could also add some essential oils, making sure to stir it in well. Massage this paste into your wet hair and scalp, then rinse off as normal. Your hair will feel clean, soft and healthy.

    10. Conditions & Detangles Hair

    Moroccan Ghassoul clay powder is cleansing and aids in hair health. It makes your hair soft, silky, shiny and manageable! When you use it as a hair mask, it acts as a natural conditioner to provide the extra silkiness your hair deserves.
