Bentonite Clay vs Ghassoul Clay Bentonite Clay vs Ghassoul Clay

Posted on by Carol Wu

Bentonite clay and ghassoul clay are both very popular and nutrient-rich clay for the hair, face, and body. They both have the abilities to detoxify, to absorb impurities, to exfoliate & cleanse the skin, and to remove product build up & dirty from the hair and scalp.

Bentonite Clay

Bentonite clay is a white grayish colored clay that is obtained mainly from volcanic ash in the USA.  It has negative charged ions, and a high concentration of minerals like aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and silica.

The negative charged ions within the bentonite clay's structure gives the clay a very powerful detoxifying effect, drawing out positively charged toxins and impurities out of the skin.  

For hair care, bentonite clay removes dirt and product build up from conventional shampoo and conditioner.

For face mask, the powerful drawing effect from bentonite clay maybe a little harsh to sensitive skin.  I recommend using bentonite clay once a week or less, and only leave on for a short time.

Ghassoul Clay

Ghassoul clay (Rhassoul clay), is pinkish gray clay that is naturally mined in the Atlas mountain of Morocco. It is widely used by Moroccan women for hair care and face mask. Ghassoul clay also has negative charged ions and high concentration of aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium, and silica.

The negative charged ions also gives ghassoul the powder to detoxify. It is often used to unclogging pores, clearing blackheads, drawing out toxins & impurities, and sucking oil around hair follicles.

For hair care, ghassoul clay removes dirt & product build up on the hair and scalp.  It also reduces dryness in the hair and improves hair elasticity, leaving the hair soft and moisturized.

For face mask, ghassoul clay draws out toxins & impurities from the skin, and it tend to be more skin friendly than bentonite clay and suitable for daily uses.

Conclusion

If you need something strong, bentonite clay is the one to go with. If you need something gentle while adding moisture and balancing between dry and oily skin, ghassoul clay is right for you.  You may use Ghassoul Clay daily, and bentonite clay for weekly or monthly deep cleansing.
