White soapwort is an herb. Its name comes from the fact that Franciscan and Dominican monks in the Middle Ages considered soapwort a divine gift that was meant to keep them clean. The root is used to make medicine.

People take white soapwort for cough, bronchitis, and swelling (inflammation) of the upper airways and lungs.

White soapwort is sometimes applied directly to the skin for ongoing (chronic) skin problems and eczema.

Don’t confuse white soapwort with red soapwort.

White soapwort has chemicals that help to break up chest congestion by thinning mucous and making it easier to cough up.

Insufficient Evidence for:

Swelling (inflammation) of the upper airways and lungs.
Skin problems such as eczema.
Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of white soapwort for these uses.

White soapwort seems safe for most adults when taken by mouth appropriately. It can cause stomach irritation, nausea, and vomiting.
