Soapberry's Soap Nuts are the fruit (not edible) of the Sapindus Mukorssi tree; they are called Soap Nuts due to their appearance after being dried. Found in India and the Himalayas the "soap nut tree" grows in tropical forests. When the fruit of the tree has ripped it falls to the ground and then is harvested. The extent of the processing of the soap nut is removing the seed and drying the fruit in the sun. The dried fruit of the "soap nut tree" contains saponin, an all natural cleaning and foaming agent. When the soap nut shell absorbs water it releases this all natural cleaning agent.
