Soapberries (or Soap Nuts) have been used as a natural detergent for centuries. Soapberries come from the fruit of the trees of the Sapindus genus, from the family Sapindacea. There are around a dozen species; native to India, China, Southern Asia, parts of north and central America. The one most widely used for its detergent attributes is Sapindus mukorossi, known simply as the Soap Nut Tree or Chinese Soapberry.
