Ghassoul clay heritage, benefits and uses

Ghassoul clay heritage, benefits and uses

Qualifiying Ghassoul as a super clay, would be an understatement. Ghassoul is a special sort of clay that comes only from the Atlas mountains in Morocco.


The clay deposits, lay under the Atlas mountains for so many years until they were unearthed and found their way to cosmetical use. And good they did stay there for a while because they just collected all the good minerals needed for our skin!


Ghassoul usually comes as hard flakes that the women traditionally infuse with different sorts of herbs and let to dry. They can infuse the clay with even more good ingredients that benefit the skin but also gives it a revigorating scent. The scent would depend on the infusion either of roses, rosemary or lavender.


Women up until now use Ghassoul after each bath and especially when they go to the Moroccan bath every week. This rare clay has such a unique combination of components such as silica and magnesium among others that naturally makes the skin glowing and soft.


Apart from the soft touch and baby like skin that Ghassoul leaves on the body, this natural clay has a lot more to offer. Ghassoul has a natural soap like ingredient which cleans softly and deeply the skin tissues. It gets rid of all impurities because of the natural absorbing power of the clay.


Ghassoul can also be used as shampoo or mask for hair. The saponin content in rhassoul 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.

Rhassoul clay is cleansing and makes 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.


At IZIL, the Ghassoul is even more refined and sold in nicely shaped pots. It is reduced to a fine gray powder to make you enjoy the softest experience.
