Organic Soap Nuts

Organic Soap Nuts

from 8.50

Soapberries are a wonderfully natural alternative to conventional laundry detergents and fabric softeners. They are often called 'soapnuts', but they are actually a berry!

Soapnuts are the fruit of the Sapindus Mukorossi tree, which grows in several different regions around the world, but is most prevalent in the Himalayas. The shell of the fruit is then collected, dried and packed for use. The shell is exceptionally high in 'saponin' which is nature's soap. This saponin content reduces the surface tension of the water so it will remove dirt and leave fabrics, soft and clean.

Our Soapnuts are harvested from wild trees in the pristine Himalayan mountains of  Nepal, by small local community groups. By purchasing soapnuts, you are supporting a future for the Nepalese people, and also encouraging sustainable practices in the home- for our Earth.

Soap Nuts are 100%:

  • Pure and natural
  • Economical
  • Non allergenic (not a nut, really a berry)
  • Antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti-fungal
  • Biodegradable
  • Wild harvested (organic)
