Soap Nuts/Berries

Soap nuts or soap berries are the fruits of the soapnut tree Sapindus mukorossi. This is a tree native to the Himalayan region and Nepal. The part of the nut or berry that is used is the shell, which is somewhere between a berry and a nut shell. It contains a natural soap or saponin which is realised into water during washing. The soap that is realised is a mild, yet effective cleaner suitable for all kinds of cleaning.
