Skin can often become overly dry and brittle from over usage of soap. Your face can be brilliantly clean and pleasantly hydrated at the same time by using this age-old secret of this nomadic tribe. Traveling through dusty drought lands beside cattle with children in tow, the women of Somaliland and Ethiopia find purifying relief from the leaves of the wild gob tree. Pesticide free leaves are dried and crushed into a fine powder which they mix with water to form a mask. High in saponins, this natural powder beautifully cleanses the skin while it lightly exfoliates. Not only will Somali Secret Soap Leaf (Qasil) make your skin beautiful, you will feel good knowing that this sustainable product provides a source of income for women living below the poverty line.
Place 1/2 tsp. in bowl. Add hot water, enough to make a semi-liquid mask. Apply warm mask to face and set 5-15 minutes. Apply water to face and gently work the scrub into face, and then rinse off.
