Soapnuts are fruit of the Sapindus mukorossi species of trees, which are in the Lychee family.

It get its name because the fruit pulp is used to make soap. Soapnut berries have been used to make natural hair and body care products for centuries. The berries are rich in natural saponin (a safe and natural alternative to conventional soap), and they effectively cleanse and moisturise without disrupting the natural pH and oil balance of your skin.

In India, they are known as reetha or ritha and used as a shampoo to prevent dandruff. In Indonesia, they are known as lerak klerek and used as a laundry wash to preserve the beautiful colours of batik clothing. In traditional Chinese medicine, it is used as a remedy for dry skin.
