From deep within the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, clay Ghassoul (today known more as Rhassoul) originated as a name of Arabic (ghassala) and means "to wash." Arabic pronunciation of "ghassoul" begins with "ghain", which people speaking English is difficult to pronounce. For this reason, local English-speaking altered the pronunciation of the sound as "ra" and the word changed to "rhassoul". Berber women from more than 1400 years were used it as soap, shampoo and conditioner for skin and later it became known and used by women of the aristocracy of ancient Egypt and Rome. Today, because of its therapeutic qualities Rhassoul is used in prestigious spas and dermatology offices worldwide.
