Gomas Barbadensis is a potion ingredient of unknown origin and composition. It is one of three known ingredients in Sleekeazy's Hair Potion, the other two being Asian Dragon Hair and Petroleum Jelly.[1]

Etymology

Gomas is the plural from of goma, the Spanish word for "gum," as in the type exuded by plants.[2] Barbadensis is a Latin term, meaning "of Barbados,"[3] which is used primarily in taxonomic names for species. This suggests that Gomas Barbadensis may be a plant from Barbados or a blend of Barbadian plant gums.
