Origin of Moroccan Clay

Originating from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, clay or “rhassoul” has been valued by the world for centuries because of its great capacity to extract impurities without dehydrating the skin or hair. It is a clay of Stevensita that was formed from volcanic lava and is extracted under the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.

After extraction, the pure clay is washed and poured into the ground to dry. Then it is exposed to the sun and the desert breeze, which enhances its healing power. Once dry, it is refined and micronized. It is considered the best clay that exists due to its high mineral content and its great capacity to extract impurities.

Rhassoul has been used by Moroccan women since ancient times to deeply cleanse and purify the skin, hair and scalp. And its use is a tradition that passes from generation to generation among Moroccan women. It is considered a beauty elixir for its protective, regenerative and healing properties.

Properties of Atlas rhassoul

It is a vivid substance, 100% ecological, very rich in minerals and hypoallergenic. These characteristics make it suitable for cleaning and softening even the most sensitive and allergic skin. At the same time, it provides an intense sensation of softness and freshness to the skin.

Rhassoul clay emulsifies and cleanses gently and deeply without any surfactant thanks to the saponin foam content, a peculiarity that makes it a natural organic cleanser based on a physical process. This makes it an ideal natural product for our facial care.

In addition, it has the peculiarity of being the only dermatological clay in which the content of calcium oxide is the lowest. This unique characteristic allows it to adapt to all types of skin and hair. In its composition, it is highly concentrated in silica, magnesium, potassium, sodium, zinc, oligoelements and provitamins.

It also has a higher absorption rate, which makes it ideal for detoxification and cleansing. Its active compounds are quickly absorbed into the skin, leaving it soft and smooth. This clay is a cosmetic so complete and level that could not be missing in NaturalisVitae.

Program of social support to the women of the Atlas

In our social support program, we extend the project to women involved in clay extraction. From NaturalisVitae, we are aware of the hard conditions in which they live and work. With each purchase made by our clients, we allocate one euro to the development project of these women workers.

With the money destined to the support program, we will improve the conditions they have in those volcanic areas. Let us remember that these are families who live and work by extracting the clay under the Atlas Mountains. We can achieve our goal with the help of all our clients. It is a team effort to make a social action rewarding for all parties.
