Properties of Moroccan Red Clay
One of the most effective clays available for acne sufferers is Moroccan Red Clay. Its many hidden talents don’t go unnoticed as it’s the best clay to use for ridding the complexion of blackheads, toning the skin, and to re-balance dry, flaky skin with regular use.
Moroccan Red Clay (aka Rhassoul Clay) has been used for the last 1400 years as a soap, shampoo, and skin conditioner. Luxuriantly smooth to the touch, its highly absorbent and exfoliating qualities make this clay a must have in top notch professional spas.
Red clay comes from ancient deposits in the fertile Atlas Mountains of Morocco. Its use in history as a cosmetic clay can be traced back to ancient Rome and Egypt where it was used by nobility to tone and enrich the skin.

Red Clay Bath–

• Shake the mixture until the clay dissolves completely
• Draw a bath at the desired temperature and add the clay water mixture
• Rinse the jar under the running water
• Feel free to add your favorite natural bath salts and/or essential oils
• Submerge as much of your body as possible
