Introducing the Sapindus mukorossi Chinese Soapberry, also known as the wash-nut tree, a species of tree native to India and Nepal. The fruit of the tree, commonly known as Indian Soapberry, contains saponin, a natural cleanser making it perfect for use on hair, skin, and clothes. It also has insecticidal properties and can be used to remove head lice. The soapnut has medicinal benefits, including treating migraines and removing skin impurities. The fruit from just one tree can produce 30-35 kg per year and the tree is tolerant to poor soil, making it perfect for planting around farmers’ homes. The soapnut has been found to be effective as a natural surfactant, increasing the mobility of oil from the fields. It also has potential for washing arsenic from soils rich in iron.
