Powdered red clay
Rich in the trace elements and mineral salts required for good skin health, red clay cleans and remineralises the skin, repairs and purifies it to leave your complexion radiant.
Its red colour stems from its high iron oxide content. Well-known for its absorbent power, red clay eliminates impurities and cleans the pores. It’s used mainly as a base for masks and body wraps, but is also widely used for making make-up (powder, foundation, blusher or eyeshadow).
Red clay is suitable for all skin types for care of the face, body and hair. It’s a complexion treatment bringing brightness to dull complexions and reducing blemishes.
Its remineralising and detoxifying action helps your skin recover its balance and vitality. Its natural red colour adds radiance to your complexion from the first time you use it.
Clay is mainly used mixed with water to make masks to apply to the required area, on the face or hair.

How is Aleppo Soap made?
Aleppo soap is made of olive oil and bay laurel oil which gives it its emerald green colour. Once the paste Is cut, the soap is dried for a minimum of 9 months. During this time, the soap oxidizes at the surfaces and develops a yellow/brown colour. You can visit our blog of full description on how Aleppo soaps are made.
Is Najel Vegan?
Yes! All of Najel products are vegan friendly and 100% cruelty free.
How do I pick the right Aleppo soap for my skin type?
For daily use of Aleppo soap for oily or normal to combination skin, we recommend using a soap with a low percentage of bay laurel oil (BLO). For example, Najel’s 100% Olive Soap, 5% BLO or 12% BLO which makes it suitable to use for the whole family.
An Aleppo soap with a high percentage of bay laurel oil (30% and above) is more suitable for dry, sensitive, and reactive skins.
