Moroccan washing clay
FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING for all orders over €60.
1 kg 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. At less® we offer only the finest quality of Ghassoul.
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, but do not rub it, on wet skin. Avoid eyes and lips. Carefully rinse off after a brief exposure. Residue in the bathroom can be cleaned up easily.
If also used for colored or chemically treated hair, we recommend testing Ghassoul first on a small area, because clay minerals can rub off color pigments or amplify an existing roughening of the hair. When converting from surfactant-containing shampoos to Ghassoul, it may take some time until the natural sebaceous gland function of the scalp has been completely normalized.
If you have dry skin or scalp, you may want to add a couple of drops of Face oil for dry skin to the mud for extra care. The oils also help with fly-away hair, as does a cold rinse. Remember to pat the hair dry (instead of rubbing it), using a soft towel, and avoid blow-dryer whenever possible.
