The Beautifying Properties of Mud

15th Dec 2016

Used for over 1,400 years for natural beauty treatments in Rome and Egypt, find out what Rhassoul mud can do for your skin.

Rhassoul Mud

Rhassoul mud comes in a clay form and is found in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. This mud has been used for over 1,400 years for natural beauty treatments in Rome and Egypt.  Rhassoul mud is now used all over the world.

Rhassoul comes from the Arabic word meaning “washing”. Rhassoul mud contains no petrochemical derivatives, no synthetic preservatives and no artificial colourings. Rhassoul Mud is 100% natural.


This mud is difficult to extract as it lies underneath the ground and has done for millions of years. When Rhassoul Mud is first mined it comes out brown and soap like. Up to 12 tonnes of clay is extracted per day. Once extracted the clay is then washed in mountain river water, aerated and sieved to remove any matter.

The Clay is then poured on the ground to be dried for 24 hours using natural sunlight and pure desert breeze within the Sahara desert.  This is then refined for a last time enabling it to become finer and softer and useable within the beauty industry.

What are the benefits of Rhassoul Mud?

  • Rich in trace minerals such as magnesium, potassium and calcium
  • Reduces dryness and flakiness of the skin
  • Helps improve skin clarity and elasticity
  • Reduces surface oil on the skin
  • Tightens and refines the pores
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Detoxifies and exfoliates leaving the skin feel soft and smooth

How it can be used?

Rhassoul mud can be used as a facial, body or scalp and hair mask.

Rhassoul mud can be used within a steam chamber. The steam chamber stimulates the blood supply around the body, relaxing the muscles and opening the pores, enabling the mud to deeply cleanse and soften the skin.

Rhassoul Mud is also combined within spa treatments around the world and used as an exfoliation, mud massage and to moisturise.
