How is Qasil Powder Traditionally Harvested and Processed? - SENSEOFREASONS

In the heart of East Africa, a skincare secret has been passed down through generations. This secret, Qasil powder, has been the cornerstone of beauty routines for Somali women for centuries. But how is this natural wonder harvested and processed? And why is SENSEOFREASONS's Qasil powder considered among the best? Let's delve into the journey of Qasil from tree to tub.

The Gob Tree: The Origin of Qasil

The journey of Qasil powder begins with the Gob tree, native to East Africa. This tree, thriving in the arid regions of Somalia, produces leaves that are the primary source of Qasil powder. The Gob tree's resilience to harsh climates ensures that its leaves are packed with nutrients beneficial for skin and hair.

Traditional Harvesting: A Sustainable Approach

Local communities have been harvesting Gob tree leaves for centuries. The process is sustainable, ensuring the tree continues to thrive. Leaves are hand-picked, ensuring only the best are chosen. This method not only respects nature but also ensures the highest quality leaves are selected for Qasil powder.

Sun-Drying: Nature's Own Process

Once harvested, the leaves are spread out and left to dry under the scorching East African sun. This natural drying process retains the leaves' nutrients, ensuring that the resulting Qasil powder is as potent as possible.

Grinding to Perfection

After drying, the leaves are ground into a fine powder. Traditional grinding methods, often using stone tools, ensure that the powder maintains its natural properties. This meticulous process ensures that the Qasil powder remains pure and free from contaminants.
