descriptionNOTE: Large quantities/sizes of any product may have to be special ordered. If that's the case, customers must allow a minimum of 10 business days for a new supply to arrive at our warehouse. Some products could arrive sooner, some later. Cancellations are not allowed because an item becomes 'out of stock' soon after the customer places the order, the 'out of stock' product will ship as soon as it arrives at our warehouse. What do we consider large quantities/sizes of our products? Some examples are products classified as bulk or that include the word 'bulk' in the product's name, products offered in 5+ lbs., expensive EO's offered in 1+ lb. and certain quantities of packaging materials. If it's important for you to know before placing an order if a certain quantity's in stock, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and inquire before placing the order. The nature of our business is such that what is in stock in the morning may not be in stock in the afternoon. All products are subject to prior sale.
NOTE: If we unexpectedly encounter a problem with the packaging material used to pack the product you ordered (defective/missing part or delivery to us delayed for any reason including road/weather conditions or the manufacturer has a manufacturing delay, etc.) we cannot ship until the correct packaging part/material is delivered to us. Please understand this and do not place an order if this paragraph presents a problem for you. In 20 years in business we've only had one instance where delivery to us of empty 35 lb. pails/lids was delayed a couple of days. (Rev. 6/19/18)
Rhassoul or Ghassoul is a mineral rich, yellowish/beige clay powder that blends extremely well with water and is considered a swelling clay because of its great capacity to absorb liquids quickly. This volcanic clay contains a high percentage of magnesium plus silica, potassium, calcium, iron, copper, zinc and lithium.
For greasy hair or hair which lacks volume and thickness, you can make a simple hair mask by adding warm water to Rhassoul and applying it throughout your hair, rinse after 15 or 20 minutes until the water runs clear. This mask will also give the hair shine.
For soapmaking, use a maximum of 2%. Increase the amount of liquids when used in cold process soaps. For other uses, recommendations are usually half a teaspoon clay to 1.5 teaspoon liquid.
INCI: Moroccan lava clay.

Great quality Rhassoul clay.
I am an African American woman with natural hair. When it comes to my hair I opt to cleanse with clays or Ayurvedic cleansing powders. One of my favorite clays to use is Rhassoul. This rhassoul from Camden Grey blends easier than others I've tried, with makes for easier rinsing, as well as a smoother blend where I don't have to worry about clay clumping at the bottom. Instead, I get a nice, smooth, easy to apply "shampoo" replacement.

Rhassoul for Acne Skin
I've struggled with adult acne for several years now and through all my research in finding natural options for my treatment I've found rhassoul clay to be one of my favorite weapons in combatting acne prone skin. This clay is excellent for masks, scrubs, and even with tea tree oil as spot treatment. The quality of camden-grey's rhassoul clay is superb. It is very well sifted and does not have any surprise hard pieces or grains that I have found in some other brands. My favorite use is combining rhassoul, diatomaceous earth, bentonite clay, tea tree oil, and water together as a paste and then using as a face mask. I highly recommend trying this stuff if you have oily/acne prone/problem skin.

Secret to soft hair!
After creating a hair mask with this clay by just adding water my hair felt soft, fluffy, and just was unrecognizable to me. I looked into this clay because I heard of its benefits for hair and recently started to hear great reviews from those who use it on their skin. I only purchased a small amount but will be ordering more along with some bentonite clay in hopes that I can create a mix that can replace shampoo.

The wonder clay
I have heard, and read various good things about the multitude of clays that are out there for health and beauty use. But, as far as I'm concerned, for cosmetic use on one's face and hair rhassoul is the clay to have!!! I originally bought the rhassoul because it was so highly recommended at sites for women who are embracing their natural curls and swearing off the chemical and other YUCK that is in the hair products we buy. I just tried a hair masque last night and believe it or not mud (clay) really does clean your scalp and hair---as hard to believe as that may be. While it was on my hair I became rather worried because it felt dry and tangled but upon rinsing out I had soft clean hair that curled without me having to do all the normal curl procedures I regularly go through. Strangely enough, I have heard it is great for oily hair too although my hair is quite dry----can't beat that! I only bought a pound with this first purchase because I wanted to see how it worked on MY hair before I invested in a larger amount but, with my next order I'll be buying in bulk--I have 24 inch long hair and it took a bit more than most people use to coat my whole head. Since I was doing my hair I thought I may as well go for the gusto and do a masque on my face too and another WOW!!! Soft, clean, smooth skin. This is my new cosmetic love!
