Also known as Rhassoul Clay, Ghassoul Clay, or Moroccan Clay, Rhassoul clay is part of the smectite family of clays (along with bentonite), which means it can expand when exposed to a liquid. Also called ghassoul clay, Moroccan brown clay (it boasts a reddish-brown hue) it’s formed from volcanic ash in the Atlas mountain range in Morocco.
Rhassoul has the widest variety of minerals in the clay family, including silica, potassium, calcium, iron, and magnesium. It has exfoliating, clarifying properties: It can help cleanse the skin by removing excess oil and dead skin cells and leaving skin softer and smoother. Similar to a charcoal mask that can lift impurities from the skin, Rhassoul clay follows a similar track. However, Rhassoul clay has an intricate honeycomb structure, allowing for more excellent oil absorption. It also infuses the skin with its healthy minerals. In that case, rhassoul clay can help condition and strengthen the skin with its potassium, calcium, and magnesium content.

Caution: A patch test is recommended using Clays to see if it suits your skin. Some Clays are rich in iron oxide and may be absorbed by the pores, resulting in skin staining.
Use coconut oil massage to remove the stain. It may stain cloth/fabric as well.
