Problem skin
Rhassoul: therapeutic, effective and natural skin care for problematic and acne prone skin. The ultimate certified organic and natural acne skin care range.

As you would expect for a range of products designed for problematic skin, the Rhassoul range of skin care products by alva is non-comedogenic and will therefore not block skin pores.

  • Rhassoul is suitable for skin of all ages; especially ideal for teenagers’ skin.
  • Rhassoul is suitable for normal, oily and combination skin.
  • Rhassoul is suitable for occasional blemishes and skin prone to pimples, blackheads and acne.
  • Rhassoul clay is suitable for rosacea**, eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis*.
Although the alva Rhassoul range was primarily developed as an acne skin care range for people with problem prone skin, it's also eminently suitable for people who live in built-up polluted environments as well as for people who wear make up frequently as it helps to stimulate the skin's self-cleaning and healing powers.

Results of Dermatological Studies:

After two weeks of using Rhassoul organic skin care products, a 24.5% reduction in the occurrence of acne, spots and blackheads was observed, with an 82.5% reduction after four weeks. After four weeks the skin's moisture level increased by 86.6%, the sebum (oil) level was reduced by 23.7%, and elasticity improved by 85%. After using the Mineral Wash Cream for four weeks on oily scalps, the oil content was reduced by 19%, whilst inflammation and dandruff was reduced by 71%.

The silica-rich Rhassoul volcanic mineral clay is highly absorbent, ideal for the cleansing and detoxification of the skin and perfect for the therapeutic care of oily skin, acne, rosacea, pimples, blemishes and blackheads.

Rhassoul clay hydrates and deposits silica and other valuable trace minerals whilst mopping up dirt particles, heavy metals, toxins and spot-causing bacteria.

Dermatological testing using alva Rhassoul organic acne skin care products has shown that skin is clearer, less oily, more hydrated and with greater elasticity.

Changes in the skin’s sebum and moisture levels and skin elasticity were measured after two and four weeks respectively.

Moisture levels increased by 32.4% after two weeks and by 86.6% after 4 weeks; sebum levels decreased by 8.5% and 23.7% after two and four weeks respectively and skin elasticity was improved by 25.4% and 85%.
