Cleansing Paste Hamam
Mask, Peeling and Cleansing.
These two cleansing pastes are made according to a traditional Moroccan formula based on pure olive oil. The paste is applied to damp skin with the hands and left for five minutes like a facial mask to prepare the skin for peeling. A hamam mitt and plenty of clean water are then used to scrub off the paste. This removes dead skin cells effectively but gently, thoroughly cleanses the skin and gives it a healthy glow. We offer the cleansing paste in its pure form, without additional ingredients, or in a variety enriched with eucalyptus oil for a distinct fresh fragrance.
Invigorating and Relaxing. Cleansing Ritual in a Hamam.
The Turkish steam bath, or hamam, has a long history in the Arab-Mediterranean region, and continues to enjoy great popularity today. During a visit to the hamam, visitors follow a sequence of traditional rituals: wrapped in a fouta or peshtemal, they pass through different rooms where the temperature gradually increases from 30 °C to up to 55 °C. This enables the body to adjust to the heat, although at the same time, each room also has its own function: there is a room for resting, for peeling and cleansing, a massage room, stimulating showers or soothing oil baths, and a final relaxation room to conclude the purification ritual.
An important part of the hamam bath is the peeling and cleansing treatment. The skin is rubbed down with water and a wash mitt, the kese, to remove dead skin cells and stimulate circulation. After a brief rest phase, soap is used to cleanse the skin more thoroughly. This treatment can also be performed as a foam massage: the masseur applies copious amounts of soap, traditionally olive oil soap, to the skin so that the visitor almost disappears in a sea of lather. The skin is then massaged with precious, soothing oils.
With the appropriate utensils, you can perform this relaxing hamam ritual in your own bathroom.
