Saponins are natural detergents (surfactants) found in a variety of plants. The two major commercial sources are desert plants: Yucca schidigera from Mexico and Quillaja saponaria from Chile. Yucca saponins have a steroid nucleus, whereas Quillaja saponins are triterpenoid in structure. Saponins contain a lipophilic nucleus (steroid or triterpenoid) and one or more water– soluble carbohydrate side chains; thus the surfactant activity is a result of both fat–soluble and water–soluble moieties in… CONTINUE READING
