How would you like to be able to walk outside, pluck a leaf off a tree and wash your skin with it every morning? What if this leaf also produced healthy skin that shunned blemishes, black heads and clogged pores? What if this leaf reduced your carbon imprint on the earth, did no harm to local waterways, and helped to preserve your habitat? What if you could walk outside and collect leaves that cleansed and beautified faces and make an income by selling this eco-friendly cleanser, too? The Gob tree provides just such an opportunity to women living in impoverished desert conditions. The tree grows in the wild in Somaliland where the women have been picking its leaves to beautify and cleanse their skin for generations. Not only do the leaves of the Gob Tree deeply cleanse the skin, but they also improve the overall health of the skin by making pores tighter and fighting off bacteria. The women of Somaliland collect and then dry the leaves from the wild growing trees. They grind the leaves into a fine powder or sell the leaves whole to mills who produce powder. The trade of the Gob Tree powder is often their only form of income. By adding a little bit of water, a scarcity in the desert, the women are able to keep their skin smooth and clear. It is not unusual to see the women walking about wearing their Gob Tree masks all day long. They say it offers them protection from the sun.
