Hammam Spa Process
At the start of the hammam process Savon Noir is rubbed in the body prior using the Gant de Gommage. The body and hair are then washed with Rhassoul. Finally oil, especially Argan oil is massaged into the skin. No wonder it is the right of every Moroccan woman to visit the hammam on a weekly basis.
A traditional lightly aromatic gel soap, originating from the Maghreb. Derived from the hulls of the black olive which are cold pressed, the soap - rich in vitamin E - is suitable for all skin types but should not be used on damaged skin. Savon Noir purifies the epidermis and removes dead cells.
Exfoliation: Massage the Savon Noir into the wet body, particularly on any rough areas. Avoid the face, eyes and hair. The soap foams very little. Leave for between 3 and 10 minutes. Rinse off the soap, then massage all off the skin with an exfoliating glove or loofah. Rinse the body thoroughly with clean water. Savon Noir can be used weekly or as part of an everyday care routine. Adjust the timing and degree of exfoliation accordingly.
Shaving: Rub Savon Noir on the skin. Leave for a few minutes. Work into a lather with a shaving brush and shave. Rinse thoroughly afterwards and apply alum in place of aftershave.
Do not use on broken or damaged skin. Use before rather than after waxing or shaving. Excellent for wet shaving! If Savon Noir gets in the eyes, rinse with running water for 15 minutes.
Deep cleans, removing toxins and dead skin cells, making skin softer and more translucent. The exfoliation activates the capillaries and lymph circulation. Savon Noir is rich in vitamin E and has an anti-microbial action.
