There is a clay that is found in Morocco that has been used as a soap for many years (Xll - Xlll) by people in the North, as well as some in the Middle East. This clay is called "Ghassoul" or "Rhassoul" that is derived from the verb "Rassala", which means "to wash" in Arabic.
Ghassoul is obtained in Morocco and extracted from famous reservoirs on the brink of the Atlas Mountains, in the Moulouya valley, approximately 150 to 200 km away from Fes. The extraction method is very old and is carried out in tunnels and underground pits. As soon as the "Ghassoul" has been extracted from the underground tunnels, it is processed and cleansed in water. To rid the clay of impurities, it is laid down on an even surface or mats and dried in the sun. The result is a pure product that is marketed in the form of thin tiles or powder.
When you use "Ghassoul", you will soon notice that ecological cleansing agents are often better than their conventional counterparts. TEA Natura places importance on this wonderful gift of nature that is imported straight from Marocco. Hair and skin will thank you for the health and radiance that this product provides. The environment is not influenced in its production.
For many years, Ghassoul has been an indispensable element in the Arab world for all the preparations of the Hammam (Turkish bath). Mineral, natural and organic - this clay is devoted to the beauty of body and hair, used as a cream for cleansing the hair, as a mask for the face and to gently cleanse the body; it softens the skin, reduces the secretion of sebum, regenerates the skin, removes dead skin cells, and keeps the pores in balance. Ghassoul is recommended for sensitive and allergy-prone skin types; it cleanses the skin, removes impurities, particularly blackheads.
Ghassoul is ideally suited to strengthen the hair; recommended for all hair types because it does not dry the hair, it reduces the production of sebum, while the hair is left shiny and soft.
Ghassoul has the same cleansing effect as a natural shampoo; it cleanses and reduces oiliness on the scalp and hair, without causing damage. Hair that is treated with Ghassoul is left looking wonderfully shiny and soft.
