Salvadoraceae is a family in the plant order Brassicales,[1] consisting of three genera with a total of 11 known species.[2] They occur in Africa (including Madagascar), Southeast Asia, and on Java, suggesting they are probably found in much of Malesia. They are often found in hot, dry areas.[citation needed]

Salvadoraceae was previously placed in order Celastrales,[citation needed] but is now placed Brassicales.[1]
