The bark contains high levels of saponins, which foaming agents are found in several other plant species used as shampoos or soaps. Saponins containing plants have a long history of use as mild cleaning agents. Saponins from the plant’s pods have been traditionally used as a detergent, and in Bengal for poisoning fish; they are documented to be potent marine toxins.

Shikakai powder has been used for centuries as a natural hair cleanser.
