Aztec Secret Rhassoul Clay is the best solution to achieve ideal exfoliation and pore-tightening. Also called illite clay or sea clay, the Moroccan Rhassoul clay removes excess oil from the skin and keeps the skin tout and healthy. It is mostly used for cosmetic purposes such as face masks, packs and even soaps with equal ease. Formed as a result of natural geothermal processes, the clay is extracted, washed, sun-dried and then micronized into a smooth earthy powder. The clay contains silicon, magnesium, iron, sodium, potassium, lithium, and trace elements that have a tremendously detoxifying and remineralizing effect on the skin. It has been used for over 1500 years as a soap, shampoo, and skin conditioner, and is used by the finest spas around the world. This clay is highly composed of plant matter, therefore the skin happily absorbs minerals such as copper and magnesium. Green clays are mostly compatible with all skin types. It especially helps oily skin by absorbing oils and maintaining sebum (natural skin oil) production.
