Face Polish is a creamy wash off cleanser containing gentle almond oil and olive esters along with cleansing castor seed oil. Powdered bamboo juice and Rhassoul Clay provide very fine exfoliating granules that won't tear at your skin like ground apricot kernel or ground walnut shell that some commercial scrubs contain.
Rhassoul Clay has been used for centuries as a soap, shampoo and skin conditioner. The finest spas across the globe currently utilize it for the therapeutic benefits.
It is mined beneath the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and it must be extracted under extremely special conditions. When first mined it appears as a polished brown, soap-like clay, chunky in appearance. After further natural refinement the end product is smooth.
Rhassoul Clay's most impressive properties in skin improvement are its capacity of absorption and adsorption due to its high level of ion exchange.
Clinical studies conducted in two different facilities in the US evaluated Rhassoul use for skin conditions.
The results of this study revealed:
- Reduces dryness (79%)
- Reduces flakiness (41%)
- Improves skin clarity (68%)
- Improves skin elasticity/firmness (24%)
- Improves skin texture (106%)
- Removes surface oil and oil from inside and around blocked pores
- Removes dead skin layers, resulting in general smoothing of the surface skin.
