The best quality of finely ground Moroccan washing clay (Ghassoul).
"Ghassoul" (pronounced Rasul) is a millennia-old clay that exists only in the Moroccan Atlas Mountains and has special cleansing properties. Mixed with water and applied to the skin, it binds dirt, excess lipids and other impurities and dissolves them without destroying the protective acid mantle of the skin. Because Ghassoul contains no surface-active agents, it is the gentlest way of cleansing besides using pure water. Rhassoul contains Silica, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium, Lithium, and trace elements and can also be used as a mask or a replacement for shampoo.
Two to three times a week, fill the shallow bowl with two scoops of Ghassoul and add four scoops of warm water. Without stirring, let the mixture soak and cool down for 3 minutes. Spread the mud on wet skin and spare eyes and lips. Carefully rinse off after a brief exposure. Residue in the bathroom can be cleaned up easily.
