Quillaja Saponaria Bark Extract

Quillaja Saponaria (aka ‘the soap bark tree’) is a tree whose inner bark can be broken down into a powder and used as a substitute for soap (thus, the name) because it creates a lather when mixed with water. It also has a long history of medicinal use with the Andean people in Chile where the tree originates. Today, the extract is used in skin care products as a gentle cleanser and moisturizer. And, like a true Giving Tree, the bark for the extract is typically obtained through regular pruning that actually improves the forest without killing the trees or damaging the ecosystem.
