My job enables me to work with women-owned co-operatives and female producers in Africa. Recently I received a sample of 100% pure [chemical free] Rhassoul clay from Morocco.

To be completely honest with you I don’t remember the last time I did. She did not believe me, saying I had such great skin that it was impossible that I did not exfoliate. I replied, “I don’t. I use natural oils and they do wonders!”
