mineral clay for generations. Today it is a favourite in luxury spas and health resorts throughout the globe because of its therapeutic properties that engender that natural glow.

The unusual name “Rhassoul” has its own little story: “Rhassoul” comes from the Arabic word “Ghassoul” which is a type of Moroccan clay or cleansing mud. “Ghassoul”, on the other hand, stems from the Arabic word “ghassale”, which basically means “to wash”.

Healing Clay from the Depths of the Earth

This remarkable reddish brown clay comes from under the Atlas Mountains in Eastern Morocco. The clay deposits come from deep within the earth, which make them difficult to obtain.

This depth of the clay is also what makes the clay rich in trace minerals. It contains higher amounts of Silica, Magnesium, Iron, Calcium, Potassium and Sodium than any other known clay. These minerals detoxify the skin by exchanging themselves for a variety of compounds including toxic metals and oils that create problem skin.

Silica is particularly known as the beauty mineral, and is a main ingredient in many skin, hair, and nail formulas. As we age, the supply of Silica in our bodies becomes depleted, resulting in wrinkled, dry skin, lackluster hair and brittle nails and bones. Alva’s Rhassoul range replenishes these minerals into the skin to combat ageing.

In addition, the Rhassoul clay is a smectic, meaning that it swells with the addition of water. This creates a powerfully absorbing effect so cleansing, detoxification and skin treatment is particularly thorough.
