Why You'll Love Riyafa Ghassoul

Ghassoul  also stimulates collagen production to reduce wrinkles and keep cellulite at bay. It’s great for your hair as well, removing old hair products without stripping away the natural oils.

  • Riyafa Ghassouls is a fine powder that you use by adding water to create a paste. (beware of alternatives that come as chips or rough lumps as these are harder to use and can damage your skin if not completely dissolved.  You can also find it premixed in paste form but this is much heavier and so has a bigger carbon footprint to deliver).


Riyafa Ghassoul has powerful cleansing and anti aging properties and is extremely rich in the minerals your skin needs. The main ingredients are silica (about 57%) and magnesium (about 25%).

As you get older and collagen production declines your skin suffers from fine lines, looseness, and dryness. The silica in Riyafa Ghassoul reverses this process by stimulating collagen production giving you more elastic, glowing, vibrant skin and keeping cellulite at bay.

Magnesium protects against the free radical damage that causes wrinkles, acne and allergic inflammation.

Riyafa Ghassoul cleans your skin and unclogs your pores using ionic exchange. Negatively charged clay particles draw out positively charged impurities in your skin, while tiny clay particles gently exfoliate, removing dead skin cells and tightening your pores.

Regular use of Riyafa Ghassoul is the best way to cleanse, rejuvenate, renew and nourish your hair and skin.

For your face: Mix three teaspoons of Riyafa Ghassoul with equal parts of warm water to make a creamy paste. If the paste seems too thick you can add a little more water.

After lightly cleansing the skin, ideally with Riyafa Savon Noir, apply the Riyafa Ghassoul paste with your fingertips and massage it into your skin gently by making circular motions on your face and neck.

If you have sensitive skin let the mask work for about 5 minutes, on normal and combination skin for 10 to 15 minutes and for oily skin allow between 15 to 20 minutes.

When the time comes to remove the mask, use a hot, moist cloth and then rinse your skin with warm water, dry it off and moisturize with Riyafa Argan Oil or Riyafa Prickly Pear Oil.

For your hair: Mix equal amounts of Riyafa Ghassoul Powder and warm water to make a creamy paste. The amount you need depends on the length and thickness of your hair.

Massage the Riyafa Ghassoul paste into your wet hair. For best results pour it directly onto your hair and use your fingertips to work the paste in from your roots down. Ensure your hair is covered entirely and leave for 15 to 20 minutes.

Don’t let the mask dry in your hair because the strands might break. If it starts to dry out spray on some water with a mister.

After 15 to 20 minutes use warm water to wash the paste out.

Repeat both processes once or twice a week for best results.
