soapnuts

{Sapindus mukorossi}

General: Native to lower Himalayan foothills up to 4000 feet, also called wash nut, or Chinese soap berry, the fruits of this deciduous tree contain saponin, a chemical compound that acts like soap (saponified oils) but does not have soap's drying qualities.

Skin Benefits: A gentle soapless cleanser and manual exfoliant. Cleanses skin without over drying and removes dead skin cells that clog pores. It completes the clearing, cleansing effect of our Neem & Sandalwood Purifying Mask.
