Saponaria officinalis, also known as soap tree, is a plant of the genus Camphor. Roots are used by beating. The saponin ingredient contained in it provides foaming.
Saponaria is used frequently in the food sector, for making tahini halva and turkish delight. One of the main reasons for choosing this plant is because of the principle of not using anything on my body if I do not put it on my plate.
