Reetha, also known as soapnut, is a natural cleaning agent and hair care ingredient. These small, round fruits contain saponins, which produce a soapy lather when mixed with water. Reetha is used for eco-friendly laundry, especially for delicate fabrics, and as a natural alternative to commercial shampoos. It is known to cleanse the scalp and hair gently, making it suitable for individuals with sensitive skin or scalp conditions. Reetha is also valued for its potential to add volume and shine to hair. In Ayurvedic tradition, it is used in various formulations for its mild cleansing and nourishing properties.
