Acacia concinna is a thorny medicinal plant, native to south Asia, widely known for the organic shampoo derived from its fruit, shikakai. The leaves are bipinnate and the thorns are soft and small. There are about 6-10 Acacia concinna seeds in a pod. The pods (shikakai), have medicinal properties and are used for hair cleansing and enhancement. Shikakai is traditionally preferred over commercially available shampoo, across the Indian Subcontinent. Shikakai is also used for manufacturing body and facial care creams, across the personal hygiene industry. Moreover, a particular extract from Acacia concinna leaves has shown to be effective in treatment of malarial fever.
